Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva
The Marchese Antinori Riserva is produced exclusively in better vintages and solely from the finest grapes of the family’s proprietary vineyards: Tignanello, Badia a Passignano, and Pèppoli at Mercatale Val di Pesa in the Chianti Classico appellation production zone. An Antinori family’s historic label, since the 2011 vintage Marchese Antinori has been produced with grapes exclusively from the Tignanello vineyard.
The Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva shows an intense ruby red color. On the nose, notes of ripe red fruit fuse with hints of vanilla and spices. The palate is ample, enveloping and balanced, but also deep and savory with supple and silky tannins. A wine of real character, with an excellent territorial identity, further characterized by a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.
