Antinori - Fattoria Le Mortelle

Antinori - Fattoria Le Mortelle

The viticultural history of the Antinori family dates back to 1385 and bears the name of Giovanni di Piero Antinori; today, after 26 generations, it is still a Piero Antinori who holds the role of honorary president of a company that now sees the involvement of his daughter Albiera as well, with the support of her sisters Allegra and Alessia. CEO since 2005 is the historic winemaker of the company who needs no introduction: Renzo Cotarella. There are countless successes and innovations promoted by the Antinori family during these 600 years, in full respect of the traditions and the territory. Few cases to name: Tignanello, the first Sangiovese to be aged in barrique and blended with international vines becoming the first “Supertuscan” (1971); Cervaro della Sala, one of the first whites to complete malolactic fermentation and age in barrique (1985). Both these wines still represent a bnchmark in their respective categories. It is also worth mentioning the well-known contribution of the Antinori family to those wines which no longer belong to the Antinori group which are a symbol of Italian enology in the world In fact, a central role in supporting Mario Incisa della Rocchetta to convert what was the family wine into the super noble Sassicaia was played by Piero Antinori; not to mention the Ornellaia and Masseto, projects promoted by Piero’s brother, Lodovico, and whose respective estates passed into the hands of the Mondavi family and later into those of Frescobaldi. We will certainly hear more about Lodovico with respect to his recent project at Biserno estate (Tenuta di Biserno).

  • Ampio delle Mortelle is the most representative wine of the estate that the Marquises Antinori started centuries ago outside of Castiglion della Pescaia, in the heart of the Maremma. Positioned within a spectacular landscape area squeezed between green hills and a beautiful stretch of Tyrrhenian coast, the estate watches the sinuous flow of the Bruna river and the Diaccia Botrona Natural Reserve on the edge of the Grosseto plain. It is an area where the French grapes chosen by Antinori have found a particularly favorable teroir to achieve qualitatively excellent yields: only the best grapes of Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc, manually selected in small boxes contribute to the creation of a wine that, although released for the first time ont in 2015, it has become a reference for the now vast supertuscan family.

    Indeed interesting is the practice of vinifying the grapes separately and aging them independently up to 18 months before blending and resting in bottle, a practice that is more and morw adopted to best express the monovarietals as if they were wines by their own, leaving the winemaker the honor (and the burden) of defining the final cuvée.

    Tasting the Ampio is an experience of sure pleasure: dark ruby ​​consistent in the glass, it inevitably opens wide on the nose with hints of black forest fruit alternated to fragrant flowers such as lavender, peppery spices and licorice, then tobacco, chocolate and a slightly mentholated finish. In the mouth it is velvety, seductive, with soft tannins, well-managed acidity and an already present softness, such as to perfectly balance the sip and anticipate a long and persistent finish.

    Yet another excellence by Antinori, certainly to be discovered, preferably to be owned.

    The 2016 vintage was characterized by low rainfall in the winter and mild temperatures in the spring, with flowering anticipated a little. The hot Maremma summer then generated conditions of water stress in turn compensated by the September rains, which led to a harvest that took place between the end of September and the beginning of October in optimal conditions.

  • We find ourselves in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, a few kilometres from Castiglione della Pescaia: here the Fattoria Le Mortelle extends for about 270 hectares (170 vineyards), which, thanks to its strategic position and the siliceous-clayey soil, giving the soil a rich skeleton, gives life to great wines of international and autochthonous varieties.

    Poggio alle Nane takes its name from the area surrounding the vineyards, formerly used for breeding ducks, locally called ‘nane’.

    This cru, the result of a blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere, has a strong personality and stands out for its structure, elegant tannins and the aftertaste of tobacco and dark chocolate.

    The result of a year with significant climate and temperature fluctuations, the 2016 vintage is distinguished by a pronounced spicy texture, which accompanies hints of berries and liquorice. A certain silkiness in the finish confirms the elegance and great drinkability of this blend.
