In honor of National Wine Day on May 25th, Osteria Via Stato will be featuring wines from Marchesi Antinori, a renowned winery known for it’s rich history in winemaking. All Antinori wines, including the coveted ones, will be sold by the glass or half glass all month long.

The Antinori family has been well known for Italian wine for over 6 centuries and 26 generations.  Today, the land, vines, winery and wine-making production is overseen by Albiera Antinori, along with her sisters Allegra and Alessia.

For Osteria Via Stato, it was love at first sip. Tuscan tradition, passion and intuition are the pillars of the Antinori foundation-the same as Osteria Via Stato. Naturally, when it came down to deciding which winery to feature on National Wine Day, it was no contest. When you walk into Osteria, you get swept up into the romance of the Tuscan experienceand with a glass of Antinori, you’ll forget you’re even in Chicago.

Come and enjoy all the wines we have to offer until Thursday, May 25th. We’ll see you in the pizzeria, the dining room or out on our patio, saluti!

 Here are a few noteworthy wines from our list:

Chianti Classico – Peppoli 2013

If this is your first time trying an Antinori vintage, the Peppoli is a good start. Ruby red in color, the wine greets you with cherries, violets, along with spice and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is savory and balanced with the crisp acidity of this variety and sweet flavors. Peppoli is best paired with leisurely chatting on our patio and people watching.

Antinori Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva Pian Delle Vigne 2007

The Pian Delle Vigne is one of the more unforgettable Antinori wines we have. Greeted with red fruit, spices, tobacco, and chocolate it is one of the more decadent wines. Mineral notes and vibrant tannins create an enjoyable tasting experience.

Cervaro Della Sala 2013
The Cervaro, has been awarded various prizes and accolades but it also has unique past. In 1940, the Antinori family purchased Monaldeschi della Cervara, a castle owned by the noble Cervara family during 14th century. In honor of the land, the family named the wine after the estate and maintained its Mediterranean character in the flavor profile. The crisp wine has buttery vanilla notes, tropical and citrus fruits, and is mineral in character.
