Introduced with the 1985 vintage, Pèppoli Chianti Classico DOCG is the archetypal modern Chianti Classico. Pèppoli combines the complexity and structure of a well-aged Riserva with the fruity fragrance of a young wine. This style is made possible by a unique microclimate where east-northeast facing vineyards are planted in a small heat-retaining valley on mineral rich, rocky soils that are perfect for growing very fruity, lively Sangiovese. The wine further benefits from the use of better Sangiovese clones, discerning grape bunch selection, and delayed harvest when necessary.
Antinori Peppoli Chianto Classico red wine is produced in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, this wine is crafted to appreciate the full expression of its fruit. The wine is primarily Sangiovese fruit blended with a percentage of Merlot and Syrah and is 13.5% alcohol by volume.
