The Chianti Classico Peppoli, a splendid expression of vineyards located in the heart of the appellation, is a compendium of freshness and envelopment. The particular vocation of its place of origin and the intelligent balance between respect for tradition and modern practices allow since 1985 to give life to a wine that has now become a reference point in its typology. It is therefore a symbolic expression, a flag in the world of Chianti, that great expression from which many producers have drawn and still draw an example. Antinori is certainly one of the best known and appreciated realities in the world of wine. In addition to boasting a long history and presenting symbolic and exemplary labels every year, such as this Peppoli, it has opened the doors to the success of Tuscan wines, through the production of high quality bottles. These are expressions of great territorial adherence, with a Tuscan taste, the result of research, tradition and passion, which are able to reveal in a sip the "Tuscanness" of the Antinori family.
Peppoli di Antinori comes from the homonymous estate which stands out for the particular richness of minerals present in the soil, located about 5 km from the prestigious Tignanello vineyard. We are in an enchanted area, a natural amphitheater, where the Tuscan valleys are smoothed by sea breezes. With all these premises, a unique and unforgettable expression could not be born: the Peppoli branded Antinori. The blend is produced for the most part from Sangiovese, while the remainder is divided between Syrah and Merlot, which give the wine a spicy and greedy contribution, as well as softness. Sangiovese macers for 10 days in steel, while the French varieties remain in contact with the skins for a longer period. After a careful extraction of the softest tannins and a malolactic fermentation that took place separately for all three grape varieties, the potential wine is assembled and refined in wood. Aging can only include the use of large Slavonian oak barrels, or even the use of barriques depending on the vintage.
Chianti Peppoli intrigues with its ruby color bordered by purple reflections. Already from the first smell it reveals its richness that alternates references to juicy red fruit, such as cherries and raspberries, with other violet floral ones, typical of Sangiovese. The picture is completed by toasted nuances due to the aging in wood, perfectly integrated. The entry into the mouth is tasty and delicate, by virtue of a caressing tannin and a good supply of freshness and flavor. Its gastronomic nature recalls pasta dishes seasoned with meat sauces, medium-aged cheeses, and soups. A daily wine not to be missed, for its ability to combine typicality and extreme pleasantness.
