2019 Antinori, Chianti Classico Riserva
This "mini Tignanello" is the perfect introduction to the wines of Marchese Antinori. Silky tanins, ripe red fruit, hints of spice and a long lively finish are the hallmarks of this terrific Chianti Classico Riserva made from 90% Sangiovese with a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Alongside Sassicaia, Tignanello holds a special place in the history of Super-Tuscan wines. All of the fruit for the Chianti Classico Riserva comes from the famed Tignanello vineyard in the heart of Chianti Classico. This is a wine that wonderfully showcases the quality and elegance of the Sangiovese grapes grown in this area.
