Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) The 2010 Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is intense ruby red in color with fruit and spice aromas. Light touches from the oak aging underscore the cherry and red berry notes that are typical of the Sangiovese grape. The wine's flavors are harmonious on the palate with tannins that are balanced and ripe. The lingering finish is vibrant with a pleasing minerality, which is typical of Chianti Classico.

Expert Reviews

    "Beautifully balanced, with dense raspberry, blackberry and spicy chocolate notes. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine, well-integrated tannins and a long, minerally finish. Fantastic. A better buy than the Tignanello this year. Best after 2005. 28,300 cases made."
