We are very happy to announce that this spring we will be hosting a series of virtual tasting events held exclusively for IG Wines clients and featuring some of our favourite producers. It is especially thrilling that our first virtual tasting will focus on the legendary wines of Marchesi Antinori. This illustrious family has been shaping the face of Italian wine since 1385 and has remained at the top of their game throughout twenty six generations of winemakers. The tasting will be guided by Allegra Antinori, who is currently running the family business. Allegra will provide a unique insight on each wine as well as sharing some amazing stories behind these prominent bottles.
The Antinori tasting on 31st March, 2021 will offer a unique chance to taste four vintages of Tignanello. Widely considered as one of the best expressions of Sangiovese in the world, Tignanello is truly a cult wine; so popular and sought after, that every vintage is completely sold out within days of its release. Therefore the opportunity to taste through a Tignanello vertical and to see how the wine evolves from vintage to vintage is an incredibly exciting prospect for any wine lover.
In addition, we will have the pleasure of tasting two of Antinori’s Super Tuscans from their glorious Guado Al Tasso estate in Bolgheri. Crafted by Piero Antinori himself, who is often named as one of the best winemakers in Italy, these wines are some of the best expressions of the prestigious terroir in the coastal area of Tuscany.
Each guest will receive a case containing six samples of the following wines*:
- Tignanello 2008
- Tignanello 2011
- Tignanello 2014
- Tignanello 2015
- Guado Al Tasso Bolgheri 2007
- Guado Al Tasso Bolgheri Cont`Ugo 2018
*The sample size is 75 ml and delivery is available only within the UK.
From their acclaimed Tignanello, born in the historical heart of Chianti Classico, to their bold Super Tuscans, Antinori work only with the best terroirs of Italy and certainly have their name written in gold in the pantheon of the world’s greatest wines. This virtual tasting offers a rare opportunity to appreciate a variety of Antinori’s wines of different vintages and to understand the signature winemaking style of this famous family. The ticket price of £125 includes six wine samples and delivery within the UK. Each ticket holder will receive a zoom link prior to the event. Please note that only a limited number of tasting cases are available and we do expect huge interest for this event. Therefore, we recommend booking your ticket as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
