Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2020
The Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is a blend of Sangiovese together with other complementary grape varieties produced as a tribute to Antinori’s historic label that has accompanied the family’s winemaking traditions over the years. The inauguration of the new Antinori winery in Chianti Classico inspired the family to reinterpret this Tuscan classic into a premium quality wine with unmistakable style, the resulting Riserva is delicate, decisive and elegant. Ruby red in colour, the nose shows intensely fruity notes of ripe cherries, red currants, and wild berry fruit along with well integrated notes of toasted oak and tobacco, and a touch of balsamic sensations. The palate is ample and enveloping, savoury, soft in its tannins and velvety in texture. The finish and aftertaste are long and persistent.
