Marchese Piero Antinori和他的三个女儿:Albiera, Allegra和Alessia / Marchese Piero Antinori and his 3 daughters: Albiera, Allegra and Alessia

安东尼家族无疑是世界上最古老的酿酒家族之一。Antinori正式成立于1385年:以Giovanni di Piero Antinori加入了被称作“佛罗伦萨酿酒艺术”(“Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri”)的佛罗伦萨酿酒师协会为标志。时间即是最好的证明,耐心、坚持、传承等所有家族生意的美好品质都可以在这里找到。传统与创新并重、历经二十七代的传承,安东尼家族一直马不停蹄地在缔造历史新篇。果敢、创新、然而始终保持着、一成不变的对传统、对风土的尊重。正如现任CEO Albiera在接受《葡萄酒爱好者》(Wine Enthusiast)采访时陈述道:“于我们姐妹仨而言,耐心是存在于我们基因中的。在葡萄酒生意里,你不能期望在短时间内就看到结果,而是需要花一代人的时间去等待才会看到成果”。

The Antinori family is undoubtedly one of the oldest winemaking families in the world. The Antinori name was formally established in 1385: when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florence Winemakers’ Association, known as the “Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri“. Time is the best proof of success; patience, persistence and other good qualities of all family businesses can be found throughout the decades – especially in the Antinori family. Both tradition and innovation are emphasised, and after 27 generations of inheritance, the Antinori family has been creating a new chapter in their history. They embody boldness and innovation, always maintaining an unwavering respect for tradition and the local terroir. As current CEO Albiera said in an interview with Wine Enthusiast: “In our case, patience is in our DNA. The wine world is a business where the results you expect to see do not come in a few years, but in a generation”.

安东尼世家还是顶级葡萄酒家族联盟(Primum Familiae Vini,简称PFV)的成员之一。成立于1992年的PFV是世界顶级家族酒庄联盟,由来自法国、德国、意大利、葡萄牙和西班牙的12个家族酒庄成员组成。这个联盟的要求包括以下三点:1. 每个家族都拥有自有葡萄园;2. 每个家族都是最顶级的生产商;3. 每个家族都有着极高的国际声誉。这一联盟包括12个大家都耳熟能祥的优质酒庄:Marchesi Antinori, 托斯卡纳, 意大利 (1385); Joseph Drouhin, 勃艮第, 法国 (1880); Egon Müller-Scharzhof, 摩泽尔, 德国 (1797); Famille Hugel, 阿尔萨斯, 法国 (1639); Familia Torres, 佩内德斯, 西班牙 (1870); Baron Philippe de Rothschild, 梅多克, 法国 (1853); Famille Perrin, 罗纳河, 法国 (1909); Vega-Sicilia, 杜埃罗河岸, 西班牙 (1864); Tenuta San Guido, 托斯卡纳, 意大利 (1840); Symington Family Estate, 波尔图, 葡萄牙 (1882); Champagne Pol Roger, 香槟, 法国 (1849); 以及Domaine Clarence Dillon, 波尔多, 法国 (1935)。

安东尼家族世代生活托斯卡纳大区的首府:佛罗伦萨。该家族从15世纪起就是当地最为显赫的家族之一。18世纪,意大利时任最高统治者洛林王朝(Haus Lothringen)授予了安东尼家族侯爵(Marchese)的世袭称号。1506年2月2日,当时佛罗伦萨最有前途和影响力的人之一Niccolò di Tommaso Antinori以4000弗罗林的价格收购了安东尼府邸 (Palazzo Antinori)。自此,历代安东尼侯爵一直在此居住和办公。它地处安东尼广场(Piazza degli Antinori)旁的阿诺(Arno)河畔,由意大利知名建筑设计师Giuliano da Maiano设计并建造,是凝聚了时间印记与文艺复兴时期风格的弗洛伦萨象征性建筑。

The Antinori family has lived in Florence for generations, the capital of the Tuscany region. This family has been one of the most prominent families in the area since the 15th century. In the 18th century, Italy’s then supreme ruler, the Haus Lothringen, conferred upon them the hereditary title of Marchesi (of the Antinori family).  On February 2nd, 1506 Niccolò di Tommaso Antinori, one of the most promising and influential men in Florence at that time, bought Palazzo Antinori for 4000 florins. Since then, the Marchese Antinori have lived and worked here for generations. Located on the Arno River bank beside Piazza degli Antinori, it was designed and built by Giuliano da Maiano, a well-known Italian architect. It is a symbolic building in Florence that embodies the pinnacle of beauty and Renaissance style.

意大利酒爱好者心中的四雅:也就是Sassicaia西施佳雅、Solaia索拉雅、Ornellaia奥纳雅、Gaja佳雅。你知道吗?其中四雅中的三雅都与安东尼家族有着密切的联系。打造出Solaia索拉雅的则是Antinori家族的Piero Antinori,Tenuta Ornellaia奥纳雅的创始人是Piero小5岁的弟弟Lodovico Antinori。Sassicaia西施佳雅的缔造者是San Guido酒庄的前任庄主Mario Incisa della Rocchetta,虽然姓氏不同,但这位来自皮埃蒙特的贵族,可以说算是Antinori兄弟的长辈。因为他的妻子就是Piero母亲的姐妹,San Guido这块土地就是他的妻子继承的田产。

There are 3 prestigious winery names that end in “ia”, & they are present in the hearts of Italian wine lovers: Sassicaia, Solaia and Ornellaia. You know what? They are all closely related to the Antinori family. Solaia was created by Piero Antinori of the Antinori family, while Tenuta Ornellaia was founded by Piero’s younger brother Lodovico Antinori, who was 5 years younger. Sassicaia was founded by Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, the former owner of San Guido winery. Although the family names are different, the aristocrat from Piemonte (Rocchetta) can be considered part of the Antinori family, because his wife is Piero’s mother’s sister, and the San Guido land was the property inherited by his wife.

天娜是超级托斯卡纳运动的先行者,随后索拉雅又继续将其推向高潮。1971年是天娜的首个年份,由80%的桑娇维塞(Sangiovese),15%的赤霞珠(Cabernet Sauvignon)和5%的品丽珠(Cabernet Franc)混酿而成。这款酒在众多方面突破了当时产区法规的限制:它是托斯卡纳地区第一款将桑娇维塞与国际葡萄品种混酿的葡萄酒,也是经典基安帝产区内第一批不添加白葡萄品种酿制而成的红葡萄酒。因此,这款酒仅可标注为日常餐酒VDT(Vino da Tavola)。即便是现今,更多的超级托斯卡纳葡萄酒也是被标记为地区餐酒I.G.T.。可以想象,在当时的意大利葡萄酒市场上,这一惊人举措毫无疑问充满着质疑与风险。索拉雅是安东尼世家的旗舰品牌,首个年份完全由赤霞珠和品丽珠混酿而成,后来加入了小比例的桑娇维塞。诞生于1978年,迄今虽仅有40多年的历史,但是已被公认为世界顶级葡萄酒的经典之作。1997年份的索拉雅更是摘得《葡萄酒观察家》(Wine Spectator)“2000年年度葡萄酒”的桂冠,成为史上第一款获此殊荣的意大利葡萄酒。2015年份索拉雅还获得了帕克团队(Robert Parker Team)和詹姆斯·萨克林(James Suckling)的双满分评价。

Tignanello was the forerunner to the “Super Tuscan” movement, and Solaia continued to push the “Super Tuscan movement” to its climax. 1971 was Tignanello’s first year and was made by blending 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. This wine broke with the norms in terms of the region’s regulations at that time in many ways: it was the first wine in Tuscany to blend Sangiovese with international grape varieties, and, it was also the first red wine brewed without adding white grape varieties in the classic Chianti region. Therefore, at the time, this bottle of wine could only be labeled VDT (Vino da Tavola). Fast forward to the present day, “Super Tuscans” are mainly labelled as regional table wines I.G.T. In the Italian wine market at that time, this move undoubtedly caused a lot of anxiety because it was a huge risk. Solaia is the flagship brand of Antinori Family. In the first year it was made entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Later, a small proportion of Sangiovese was added. Born in 1978, it only has a history of about 40 years, but it has been recognized as a classic, one of the world’s top wines. In 1997, Solaia won the title of “Wine of the Year 2000” by Wine Spectator, becoming the first Italian wine to win this honour. In 2015, Solaia also received double full marks from Robert Parker’s Team and James Suckling.

值得一提的是,目前的27代庄主是家族逾600多年酿酒经营历史上首位女性CEO。据《葡萄酒爱好者》报导,2017年,长女Albiera Antinori于2017年8月接替父亲Piero Antinori侯爵担任CEO一职。她的两个姐妹Allegra和阿丽莎Alessia也在协助管理酒庄。老庄主Piero Antinori侯爵则退居幕后,担任集团名誉主席。26代老庄主为酒庄发展作出了许多重要贡献:包括他非常引以为豪的、出产世界上最好的“超级托斯卡纳”的天娜(Tignanello)酒庄;首次敞开酒庄大门接纳公众参观等。接下来,让我们拭目以待、来期待新一代安东尼女性的杰出表现!

It is worth mentioning that currently, after 27 generations of owners, the Antinori family has its first female CEO in the family’s more than 600 years of winemaking history. According to “Wine Enthusiast” in 2017, the eldest daughter Albiera Antinori succeeded her father Marchese Piero Antinori as CEO in August 2017. Her two sisters Allegra and Alisha Alessia are also assisting to manage the winery.  Marchese Piero Antinori, instead, took a back seat and became the honorary chairman of the group. Marchese Piero Antinori made many important contributions to the development of the winery, including to the Tignanello winery, which he is very proud, it produces the best “Super Tuscan” in the world after all. For the first time, the door of the winery was opened to the public; we might be biased here but, let’s wait and see what outstanding developments occur with this new generation of Antinori women!
