The Wine

Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

93/100 James Suckling "A very finely crafted red with berry, walnut and light coffee-bean character. It’s medium-bodied and tight with intense tannins and a flavorful finish. Very racy and intense".

90/100 Robert Parkers Wine Advocate "Made with fruit that is sourced from various points in the appellation, the hot-vintage Marchesi Antinori 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is Sangiovese with a tiny part of Merlot blended in to round off and soften the wine. The fruit is rich and concentrated with ripe plum, summer cherry and blackberry. Spice, leather and mild tobacco play supporting roles. The quality of those aromas is bold and dark, and the wine ultimately delivers more in terms of power and intensity than it does fine nuance. That's what makes this wine so well suited to breaded veal or grilled sausage".

90/100 Vinous "Expressive floral and spice notes give the 2017 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori its effusive personality. In the glass, the 2017 is mid-weight and gracious, with lovely translucence and silky tannins that wrap it all together. This is a decidedly understated style".

About the Wine Maker

Antinori is a name synonymous with wine in Italy, the equivalent of the royal family of wine in the country. Intimately involved in the wine industry of Italy since 1385, initially in Tuscany, but in more recent years their influence has grown seeing them involved in wine-making projects across the country. They were instrumental in the renaissance of Chianti and their portfolio of wines includes some stellar names such as Tignanello - the Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc blend that was most influential in the Super Tuscan movement, Solaia - the Cabernet dominant blend also from the Tignanello Estate .
