It sounds like a fairy tale: The wine king of Chianti Classico, Marchese Piero Antinori, has three daughters who fairly divide the vinological realm of the noble family among themselves. How skilfully and sensitively they continue the legacy of the Tuscan winemaking pioneer was revealed by Albiera and Allegra Antinori in a Wein-Plus interview with Eva Dülligen.

Wein-Plus: Ms Antinori, your first name is Albiera, your sisters Allegra and Alessia. Did your parents have the "Triple A", which is awarded by rating companies as the highest credit rating for companies, in mind when naming you?

Albiera Antinori: A nice thought: AAA. But no, there are ten years between my youngest sister Alessia and me. My parents would have had to think about our names far in advance. A triple A would make more sense with triplets. (laughs)
