Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori 2015
James SucklingA focused nose that shows red cherries, red and dark plums, as well as cedar and nutmeg. The palate's so lithe and elegant with firm tannins, tangy acidity and a mineral finish. Drink now."
Wine Advocate"The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is Sangiovese sourced from across the 130-hectare Tignanello estate with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot added to the blend. Only 20% of the wine is aged in new oak (barrique and tonneaux from France and Hungary), while the rest goes into neutral barrels. What stands out first is the soft or fleshy nature of the tannins. They are sweet, yet the wine is held together with firm grip and backbone. The aromas are vibrant and dark with mature fruit followed by fragrant rose hip, forest berry and chalky mineral." 9/18.
