Antinori’s Peppoli was first made in 1985 and year in year out proves to be a reliable, great value Chianti Classico. Produced from predominately Sangiovese grapes, the wine was aged for approximately 9 months in large Slavonian oak casks with a small parcel in stainless steel tanks to preserve the freshness of fruit.

Deep dark red core with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Elevated aromas of ripe red currants and dark cherries intermingle with dried herbs, subtle tobacco, old cedar, faint leather and spice. Medium bodied and quite savoury the palate features ripe red currant and dark cherry flavours over earth, light tobacco, dried herbs and spice. Slightly dryish but well integrated tannins with a lick of bright acidity on the medium length finish.
Cellar 3-4 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews….
Lovely purity of fruit here, especially when you consider the vintage, ranging from citrus to raspberries to iodine. The juicy and succulent tannins are just the right counterpoint to the rather tangy acidity, and this ends medium-chewy and grainy. Drink now.
