Architecture

The cellar is an innovative work of architecture, fruit of seven years of work. Following the indications of Marquis Piero Antinori and his daughters Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia, the Archea Associati studio, working with the engineering firm Hydea, took charge of its creation. The structure of the cellar, a reddish brown in color and constructed with such natural materials as terra cotta, wood, weathered steel, and glass, puts the focus on the profound and deeply rooted ties to the soil and the full respect for the natural beauty of a spot which has always hosted the vineyards of the Antinori family.

Conceived to have a minimal impact on the environment and high energy savings, the cellar is an unusual and fascinating place where the administrative spaces, the zone reserved for production, and the areas open to the public all coexist peacefully and harmoniously.

Practically invisible from the exterior, if not for two horizontal “slashes” in the hillside which correspond to the cellar’s façade, its distinctive sign is the spectacular spiral staircase which joins together the three stories of the structure.

It faces onto the countryside solely through a terrace surrounded by a vineyard cultivated to Sangiovese, the typical grape variety of Chianti Classico, along with the other grapes once used in the wine’s blend: Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, Malvasia Nera, and Mammolo.

A small part is planted to such international varieties as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

The cellar was constructed with the idea in mind of utilizing the force of gravity during the various phases of winemaking and to guarantee ideal temperatures for the production and conservation of the wine.
