Profile

Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is ruby red in color. On the nose, intense notes of ripe red fruit, cherries, currants, and raspberries lead over to delicate floral scents of dog rose, violets and lavender. Its bouquet is completed by typical sanguine sensations together with pleasant spicy hints of tobacco, cinnamon, cloves with a sweet note of milk chocolate. Its palate is well-balanced with lively, silky tannins that impart freshness and sustain a savory, persistent finish.

The Antinori family has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries since 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the "Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri," the Florentine Winemaker’s Guild. All throughout its history, twenty-six generations long, the Antinori family has managed the business directly making innovative and sometimes bold decisions while upholding the utmost respect for traditions and the environment.

Critic awards

This wine sources its fruit exclusively from the Tenuta Tignanello in San Casciano Val di Pesa. The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is a generous and open-knit wine with pretty plushness and dark fruit flavors of cherry, plum and dried currant. It ages in barrique with a lot of secondhand or otherwise neutral oak, and that's why the fruit comes through with such clarity. This is one of the big surprises of this flight, and this vintage certainly punches above its price point.

— 94 points, Robert Parker

A harmonious red, offering an expression of cherry, blackberry and floral aromas and flavors offset by a vibrant, well-integrated structure. Shows iron, tobacco, smoke and a hint of wild herbs, which weigh in as this evolves on the palate toward a lingering aftertaste. Delivers finesse and energy. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

— 94 points, Wine Spectator

This has enticing aromas recalling ripe plum, fragrant blue flower and oak-driven spice. On the smooth, savory palate, supple, fine-grained tannins accompany juicy Marasca cherry, cassis, vanilla and star anise. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced.
