Producer: Marchesi Antinori
The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion, and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family’s traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential.
Tasting Notes: The 2013 Achelo demonstrates just how favorable a year for the ripening of Syrah the vintage was. The color is intensely purple, the nose shows such typical aromas of the variety as white fruit, tobacco, and pepper. The palate is full and supple with flavors of white peach and blackberries which, along with tobacco and spices, linger and last all the way through to the finish and aftertaste.
Grape Variety: 100% Syrah
Alcohol percentage: 14.0%
First time having Italian Syrah . It was smooth with an elegant medium finish . Full bodied with notes of blackberry and oak . I felt the oak notes was a bit overpowering , would have been better if it was toned down a bit
