Pietro Antinori paints an improbable picture of the reality of a multimillion dollar family owned wine business It is clear Antinori has a love of family wine and Tuscany but also a love of influence and success Throughout the book Antinori struggles what story to tell; the humble yet successful Chianti making family still with boots in the soil or an elite and globalized company with goals of a sort of wine imperialism Perhaps this book told a story about Italian wine I didn’t want to hear This history of a great Italian wine maker makes me want to schedule a vacation to Italy as soon as possible A tratti un po' autocelebrativo ma molto interessante uando racconta il modo in cui ha vissuto e influenzato l'evoluzione dell'industria vitivinicola della seconda metà del 1900 The author tends to repeat information but then a piece of fascinating information is given ie South American natives were cultivating grapes decades before the arrival of Columbus 1 Montenisa Brut Rose Franciacortahttpwwwwine searchercomwine 669WSJ article on Antinori family successionhttpwwwwsjcomarticlesSB1207342Another famous female Italian wine maker Gaia Gajahttpwwwwine searchercomm20141httpswwwtripadvisorcomsgAttracPalazzo AntinorihttpswwwtripadvisorcomsgAttrac2 Villa Antinori Chianti Classicohttpwwwwine searchercomwine 5123 Solaia Piero Antinori’s fave ’82 86 ’09 12 ’06 07 ’04 ’97 94Osteria di PassignanohttpswwwtripadvisorcomsgRestauSoave Frank Sinatra was alleged to have insisted that a bottle of nicely chilled Soave accompany his every mealhttpblogswsjcomwine20110711httpwwwnjcomhomegardenentertaiCampania Mastroberardino Radici Riserva Taurasi ’05 Italian wineshttpwwwvinographycomarchives204 TignanelloSuper Tuscans 4 Super Tuscans served by Italian PM to Obama Sassicaia ’85 ’88 2006 12 ’98 ‘01 Tignanello '75 '82 '04 '07 Ornellaia '98 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino 2007 9 Tua Rita Giusto di Nostri 2006 Fattoria Le Pupille ‘Saffredi’ 2010 ’09 ’04 ’07 Isole e Olena Cepparello Solaia Piero Antinori’s fave ’82 86 ’09 12 ’06 07 ’04 '01 ’97 94 Masseto 100% merlot;

“Wine runs through every part of my life like a red river linking who I was as a child to my current identityfor as long as I can remember wine has been associated with pleasure for me” uite so I thought as I sat on a terrace tasting the local ChiantiThis book features on my Italian Reading List for BookTrib I love Italy and its culture so I thought this book would be interesting Unfortunately it wasn't interesting enough to hold my attention Piero Antinori tells his family's story of being in the wine business At times it seemed like the author was just bragging about their accomplishments I was surprised to learn that the family has been in the wine business for twenty six generations Most families sell a business after a few generations This book will appeal to wine enthusiasts but others might find it dull Very affectionately written and inspiringI thought this would be a difficult read but it wasn't Enjoyed the author's thoughts and reminiscences I love wine and clearly Piero Antinori is still very wine passionate several years after he took over the reins of his company Like most Tuscan things this books is a treasure An excellent read that really contributed to my knowledge of Italian wines wine making and history Beautifully written
