In 1904 a cooperative Ai Vini delle Langhi was set up by wine growers of the area; this was subsequently taken over and renamed by Alfredo Prunotto in 1923. After another change of ownership, Antinori acquired the estate and have maintained the excellent level of quality sought by Alfredo Prunotto. Prunotto were the first winery to establish the Cru’s concept and is one of the top five estates in Piedmont.
Badia a Passignano
This Estate extends over 100 ha of vineyards, surrounding the Vallombrosan Abbey still inhabited by the Monks. The wine is aged in the old cellars beneath the Abbey (Badia). The Chianti Classico featured is a Cru made from the best Sangiovese grapes on the estate.
Guado al Tasso
300 ha of vineyards are located at the centre of the so called ‘Bolgheri amphitheatre’ – gentle hills surrounding a magnificent plain, rolling down to the sea. The amphitheatre has a micro climate with unique features reflected in the great wines produced in this terroir. Guado al Tasso is the prestigious flagship wine of this estate and fully expresses this unique terroir in all its structure, elegance and complexity.
Castello della Sala
Tuscany is famous for its red wines so when Marchese Niccolò Antinori, father of Piero, the current chairman of the company, decided to make a great white wine, he looked to Umbria and bought the Castello della Sale property, intrigued by the potential of the land and the beautiful medieval castle. 160 ha of vineyards on particularly complex land at altitudes between 164 & 650 ft above sea level – a highly desirable area for the production of great white wines.
