Description

Princess Antinori-Aldobrandini, 1870-1933, last owner of the villaPrincipessa Maria

Maria Antinori, Principessa Aldobrandini by marriage (1870-1933), was the daughter of Amerigo Antinori, the administrator of the property of the exiled Grand Duke of Tuscany family. In 1891, her father granted her as dowry the ownership of the Villa Cosmiana estate and its 11 farms. From that time on, she shared her time between Rome where she was living with her husband and her two children and Villa Cosmiana, where during long prolonged summer rest periods she used to gather around her renowned intellectuals and artists of the time and worked to upgrade the agricultural production of the villa’s land in pursuit of excellence. The name Principessa Maria has been given to our Terre di Pisa assembled in a Bordeaux blend from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc grape varieties harvested from the Villa Cosmiana estate.
