Alessia Antinori (2014)
An Evening in Paradise
with Alessia Antinori
Alessia Antinori represents 26 generations of elite winemaking. The Antinoris are the oldest family winery in the world and among the most dynamically innovative in history, ushering in the modern era of Italian wines in the 1970s with the introduction of Tignanello and forcing changes in Italy's laws governing the industry to recognize the unprecedented quality of Antinori wines. The many honors and accolades bestowed on Antinori wines in their rich history include the Antinori Cervaro dela Sala Chardonnay Umbria, the most decorated wine ever produced in Italy. Today the Antinori family operates vineyards around the world, and each combines a love of tradition and authenticity with an innovative spirit you must taste to truly believe.
James Suckling named the 2010 Marchesi Antinori Toscanan Solaia the Italian Wine of the Year. In addition, the Antinori’s accolades include:
- Piero Antinori Lifetime Achievement Award 2008 by Wine Enthusiast
- Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List in 2000, 2004 and 2007
- Best Italian Winemakers of the Year 2006 International Award
- Best Winemaker of the Year 2004 by Italian Wines
- Top Wine of Year 2000 by Wine Spectator
Legend has it that the Antinori's Monteloro vineyard inspired Dante in the writing of The Divine Comedy. As Dante was passed through the Casentino Valley, he glimpsed Monteloro, where his beloved Beatrice lived. He called it Paradise. Please join us as Alessia Antinori presents some of the family's most prized wines, providing you with a glimpse of "Paradise."
