Winemaker Notes

Marchese Antinori is ruby red in color. On the nose intense notes of morello cherries, violets and lavender and slight sensations of iron typical of Sangiovese and spicy notes of tobacco and leather; its bouquet is completed by delicate hints of vanilla and cocoa powder. Its palate is mouth-filling, generous and lively with an excellent compact tannins that give it a lengthy persistent finish. Exceptional aftertaste characterized by red fruit and licorice.

This wine is made exclusively with fruit from the gorgeous Tenuta Tignanello in San Casciano Val di Pesa (home to its namesake wine Tignanello, and Solaia) and sees mostly Sangiovese blended with a smaller part Cabernet Sauvignon and other complementary grapes. The Marchesi Antinori 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori vaunts a smooth and silky personality with ample berry definition and brightness. The previous 2017 vintage revealed more black and purple fruits because of the scorching hot and dry summer that year, but this wine from the cooler 2018 growing season focuses on red raspberry and cherry instead. That fruit is framed by light spice (from Hungarian and French oak) and licorice
