The Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva opens with aromas of red fruit with notes of balsamic and spice. On the palate, flavors of berries and earth are supported by a firm structure and supple tannins. The flavors are balanced, with light acidity - typical of the Sangiovese grape.

Wine SpectatorRipe and spicy, featuring cherry, plum, almond and earth flavors. As this plays out on the finish, leather and tobacco notes join the party and the well-integrated structure provides ample support. Best from 2021 through 2035.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is Sangiovese sourced from across the 130-hectare Tignanello estate with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot added to the blend. Only 20% of the wine is aged in new oak (barrique and tonneaux from France and Hungary), while the rest goes into neutral barrels. What stands out first is the soft or fleshy nature of the tannins. They are sweet, yet the wine is held together with firm grip and backbone. The aromas are vibrant and dark with mature fruit followed by fragrant rose hip, forest berry and chalky mineral.
