Marchese Antinori, Chianti Classico Riserva, Tignanello
By Pete's Provisions
WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Marchese Antinori is ruby red in colour. 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 liquorice.
ABOUT THE WINERY
This Antinori family’s historic label, since the 2011 vintage Marchese Antinori has been produced with grapes exclusively from the Tignanello vineyard. It’s made almost entirely with Sangiovese with a small percentage of other complementary varieties. A wine that fully expresses the quality and elegance of Sangiovese grapes grown in this area.
