The Pèppoli estate is located five kilometers (three miles) to the northeast of the Tignanello estate and extends over a total surface area of100 hectares (250 acres), 50 of which (125 acres) are planted to vines which produce the Peppoli Chianti Classico, an appellation controlled wine.
The vineyards face east-northeast and, despite this unusual position and exposure, are situated in an ideal micro-climate; they are located, in fact, in a small valley which maintains warmth and on mineral-rich rocky soils, perfect for the production of a fruity and lively Sangiovese. The Pèppoli vineyards consist principally of Sangiovese, although there is some Merlot and Syrah and a small amount of Malvasia as well.

Why increases in continuous experiments in the vineyards and cellars with selections of native and international clones of grapes, types of crops, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, different types of timber size and age of barrels , and varying the length of refining in the bottle.

We have a mission that is not fully accomplished, which pushes us to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile again remains to be discovered with the heritage of the Tuscan taste that includes traditional, culture, agriculture, 'artistic and literary These things represent the identity of the Marchesi Antinori, one of the greatest strengths lies in the fact of being Tuscan, or if you prefer, our' Tuscan '.
