For over twenty years, Alberto Antonini has been overseeing a project that involves a number of growers who farm vineyards in the area surrounding his home town of Cerreto Guidi. Alberto oversees and consults on vineyard management and harvest timing, selecting only the best fruit that is then vinified in a shared winery that is only a couple of miles away from his Poggiotondo estate. Named Buontalenti after the famous 16th century Florentine architect who designed the Villa Medicea in Cerreto Guidi, this Chianti shows beautiful depth, ripe aromatics and a long finish.
