Villa Antinori Riserva 2013
Antinori Week: not only at Alessi (between wine and culture in Florence)
Florence is a very special place for the Antinori family, as the family’s history started in Florence indeed, with Niccolò di Tommaso Antinori (1454-1520).
Niccolò commissioned Giovanni della Robbia a beautiful glazed terracotta lunette to Giovanni della Robbia: La Resurrezione – The Resurrection (Niccolò was a “character” in the artwork as well, in a corner to the right of Christ). The beautiful terracotta is usually in the USA. But it is on its way back to Florence for a while.
