Palate Profile

Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2018 is ruby red in color. On the nose, this red wine offers notes of plum, cocoa, white pepper and eucalyptus. The palate is soft and vibrant, characterized by a savory, long finish. The wine’s aromas come to life on the palate with fruit, spice and balsamic characters.

Critic Awards

This is tight on the palate with cherries and berries and hints of toasted oak and cedar. It’s medium-bodied and compact, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely fruit at the end. Drink or hold.

The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori shows the mid-weight style of the year nicely. Silky and aromatic, the 2018 is super-expressive right out of the gate. Dark red cherry, spice, menthol and leather build into the gracious, persistent finish. This is very nicely done.

The 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori opens to a sweet note of summer cherry and wild plum that is so characteristic of Sangiovese. The wine is shapely and soft with some distant oak spice, blue flower and potting soil. A small part of Merlot is blended in to add that extra plushness.
