The Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva shows an intense ruby red color. On the nose, notes of ripe red fruit fuse with hints of vanilla and spices. The palate is ample, enveloping and balanced, but also deep and savory with supple and silky tannins. A wine of real character, with an excellent territorial identity, further characterized by a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori emerges entirely from Antinori's Tignanello estate. Plump and forward, with juicy dark fruit, the Marchese Antinori is done in a decidedly modern, lush style. Mocha, sweet spice, licorice and black plum meld into the creamy finish. The 2016 is attractive, but I can't help thinking a lighter hand in the cellar might yield a wine with greater finesse and expression of place.

A hefty dose of spicy oak wraps around the black cherry, plum and leather flavors. Muscular and broad, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit, tar and spice. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2021 through 2028.
