Professional Wine Reviews for Antinori Chianti Classico Peppoli 2016

Rated 91 by James Suckling
A Chianti Classico that shows dark plums, raspberries and hints of crushed cherries. Medium body, ripe tannins and a crisp finish. Drink now.
Rated 89 by Wine Spectator
Pure and juicy, exuding cherry, strawberry, currant and mineral notes. Firmly structured, with dusty tannins lingering. Give this a year to come together. Best from 2020 through 2028. 18,000 cases imported.
Rated 88 by Wine Advocate
Here's a fun, zippy wine to enjoy with pizza or pasta at your local trattoria. The 2016 Chianti Classico Pèppoli is a lean red wine with the fresh aromas of cassis, cranberry, blue violet and grilled herb that are characteristic of Sangiovese. This wine shows easy purity with a light, garnet color. The acidity is glossy and bright. Pèppoli is a bit closed at the moment, but it awakens quickly with a few swirls of the glass.

Winery Antinori

Region: Tuscany

The beautiful region of Tuscany has been associated with wine production for almost three thousand years, and as such is one of the oldest and most highly respected wine producing regions in the world. The hot, sunny climate supports quite a wide range of grapes, but the grape varietals most widely grown across this large region are Sangiovese and Vernaccia, both of which are used in the production of Tuscany's most distinctive red and white wines. Cabernet Sauvignon and other imported grape varietals have also flourished there for over two hundred years, but it wasn't until the 1970's and the rise of the 'Super Tuscans' that they were widely used, when the fine wineries of the region began experimenting with Bordeaux style red wines to great effect.

Country: Italy

Italy is recognised as being one of the finest wine producing countries in the world, and it isn't difficult to see why. With a vast amount of land across the country used primarily for vineyard cultivation and wine production, each region of Italy manages to produce a wide range of excellent quality wines, each representative of the region it is produced in. Any lover of Italian wines will be able to tell you of the variety the country produces, from the deliciously astringent and alpine-fresh wines of the northern borders, to the deliciously jammy and fruit-forward wines of the south and the Italian islands. Regions such as Barolo are frequently compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy in France, as their oak aged red wines have all the complexity and earthy, spicy excellence of some of the finest wines in the world, and the sparkling wines of Asti and elsewhere in Italy can easily challenge and often exceed the high standards put forward by Champagne. Thanks to excellent terrain and climatic conditions, Italy has long since proven itself a major player in the world of wines, and long may this dedication to quality and excellence continue.
