Aged predominantly in large oak casks, it offers charming notes of sweet garden herbs, wild cherry and cinnamon. A flinty edge counters the ripe easygoing core and powdery tannins are yielding. This will give plenty of pleasure in the near term. Drinking Window 2020 - 2025; Rating: 90 Points Decanter

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. Some 180,000 bottles were made.
