Antinori is renowned for driving through a revolution in Tuscan winemaking in the 1970s. Its most famous estates are Sassicaia and Tignanello, the latter just 3km away from beautiful Badia a Passignano. This property has 65 hectares of prime vineyards in an outstanding part of Chianti Classico, with the winery based in the 1000-year-old monastery, from which it takes its name. Its maze of underground cellars house the many barrels of ageing wine. Gran Selezione is made from their top--flight Sangiovese grapes, all handpicked and the wine aged in Hungarian oak barrels. Opulent ripe fruit, underscored by taut freshness with fine silky tannins, this is a wine of great depth and intensity. Decant and serve with ragù or truffle tagliatelle.

"A really beautiful red with cherry, blackberry, violet and chocolate character. Full and layered" James Suckling
