Pèppoli Chianti Classico Antinori
Embark on a journey through Tuscan elegance with Pèppoli, Antinori’s Chianti Classico. The result of carefully harvested grapes and meticulous winemaking, this red wine offers a unique sensory experience, reflecting the tradition and innovation of Antinori.
Grapes, harvested separately by variety, undergo careful destemming and gentle pressing before being introduced to stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature between 26 and 28 °C, enhancing aromatic expressions and preserving the fruity and floral notes of each variety. Maceration, managed with targeted mechanical interventions for the extraction of soft and sweet tannins, extends for about 10-12 days for Sangiovese and up to two weeks for complementary varieties.
After completing malolactic fermentation by the end of winter, the assembled wine matures in large Slavonian oak barrels and, to a small extent, in barriques and stainless steel tanks. Bottling commenced in September 2023.
Color: Bright ruby red, captivating the eye with elegance.
Aroma: Fresh sensations of red fruits, such as currants, strawberries, and pomegranate, accompanied by notes of watermelon. Delicate floral aromas of dog rose and hibiscus, surrounded by an undertone of caramel, complete the bouquet.
