Antinori Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2012
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 and the beautiful Peppoli Chianti Classico.
The Villa Rosso Chianti Classico Riserva is an intense ruby red in color. The nose shows notes of red berry fruit, particularly red currants and raspberries, which blend with aromas of cherries. Light oak notes fuse with spicy sensations, cinnamon and candied fruit. The flavors are balanced, with the light and tonic acidity typical of the Sangiovese grape and silky and vibrant tannins which give additional pleasure on the finish. Fruity and lightly oaky sensation linger on the aftertaste.
