The Pèppoli vineyards produce a Chianti Classico that is a blend made from Sangiovese grapes and complementary varieties; Pèppoli is recognized and appreciated for the full expression of its fruit. A wine that represents the Chianti Classico territory and its historic grape variety with typical floral and fruity aromas. Pèppoli was first produced in 1985 and since 2013 part of the harvest undergoes vinification at the Antinori nel Chianti Classico cellars.

Pèppoli 2019 is ruby red in color. On the nose, Pèppoli offers sweet notes of red fruit, cherries and lychee accompanied by floral scents of rose petals and spicy hints of sandalwood, rosemary and lavender. The palate is soft with smooth, sweet tannins together with well-balanced freshness that make it easy to drink, lively and savory. The ideal trattoria or pizza red, this is a tasty crowd-pleaser. 

The ancient Antinori family is one of the oldest and most respected wine families in the world. The Antinori clan has lived in Florence since the early 13th century when they moved there from Calenzano, a small town between Florence and Prato. The merchant family was registered with the Guild of Silk Weavers in 1285 and later with the Guild of Bankers, thanks also to the branches that opened in Bruges and Lyons, and the growing network of business in Europe. They were also wine producers and merchants, and it was this business that became prevalent over time: Giovanni di Piero Antinori registered with the Guild of Winemakers in 1385. Production and sales of wine became increasingly important for the family and by the 16th century they were known to various clients outside Italy.

The 2019 Chianti Classico Pèppoli is floral, elegant and gracious, all of which make it a fine choice for drinking over the next few years. Sweet red berry fruit, spice and floral accents give this mid-weight, lithe Chianti Classico tons of appeal. It is a wine more of finesse than size.

The Marchesi Antinori 2019 Chianti Classico Pèppoli shows bright fruit and dried cherry with some nutty tones of toasted hazelnut at the back. This is a famously simple and streamlined wine with mid-weight appeal and good acidity. It is the proverbial Italian pasta wine, whether it be a carbonara or amatriciana. The wine ages in a combination of large Slavonian oak, barrique and stainless steel vat. Production is a huge 834,000 bottles.
