• One of Italy’s earliest organically farmed vineyards, founded by the legendary Prince Alberico after WWII. • Owned for two generations by the Antinori family and run by Piero Antinori’s daughters, the granddaughters of the prince. • The estate’s volcanic soils make for wines with intense minerality and great depth. • Some of Italy’s oldest plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. • The farm also grows Sémillon, an extremely rare grape in Italy. • Top wines are made from the prince’s vineyards. The other wines are made from vineyards planted with cuttings from the historic rows planted by the prince. • Eric Asimov profiled wrote a New York Times piece about this legendary estate in 2004.
The historic Tenuta Principe Alberico was founded after WWII by Prince Boncompagni Ludovisi, one of the pioneers of organic farming in Italy. Today, it is run by his granddaughters, Albiera, Allegra, and Alessia, whose father Piero Antinori — one of the greatest Italian winemakers of all time — married the prince’s daughter.
