"An intense ruby red with occasional brick-toned highlights, the wine's aromas are fragrant and fresh with pleasurable notes of red berry fruit and exotic fruit and hints of liquorice, currants, vanilla, and passion fruit. The notes of Chianti Classico-style Sangiovese dominate the nose and fuse perfectly with a Cabernet which is equally important in characterizing this wine. On the palate the wine is highly pleasurable, supple, round, and soft in texture and savory as well. Tonic and vibrant sensations characterize a notably elegant finish and aftertaste." -winemaker
Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
The Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is remarkably polished and silky. Dark red cherries, flowers, sweet spices and mint all flow from a wine that impresses for its textural softness. The addition of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon adds an element of darkness and juiciness to the Sangiovese in a Chianti Classico that has slightly international leanings at times reminiscent of Tignanello. Sweet floral notes reappear on the finish. Drinking window: 2014-2024."
