Antinori Marchese Antinori Chianti Riserva 2016 (Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Antinori Marchese Antinori Chianti Riserva 2016 presents an intense ruby red coloration.
  • Nose: Aromas of ripe red fruit marry with suggestions of spice and vanilla.
  • Mouth: Antinori Marchese Antinori Chianti Riserva 2016 bears the true red cherry character of its territory, with a full and engaging palate and a medium body. The savory, fruit-forward flavours have depth and the tannins give a silken experience, leading into a firm, persistent finish. The keyword is balance.

APPELLATION: Chianti

VINEYARD: Marchese Antinori. The family have been artisans of winemaking since 1385, when the first such Antinori became a member of the Florentine Winemakers' Guild. This historic wine has been produced from the grapes of the Tignanello estate since 2011. The estate lies between the valleys of the Greve and Pesa rivers, in the very heart of Chianti Classico country.

GRAPES: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

AGEING: One year in French and Hungarian small oak barrels before blending. A further year of bottle ageing.

PREPARATION: Spring 2016 began with fine weather, leading to bud break ten days earlier than average. Storms and cool days in early summer did not prevent vibrant growth or healthy harvest. After soft destemming and pressing, the must fermented for a week in stainless steel tanks. Soft techniques (pumping over and délestage) in handling skin contact ensured supple, elegant tannins despite intense extraction.

PAIRING: Pastas with meat sauces; game; roasted red meats; strong cheeses. Try with Venison Bourguignon or Baked Garlic Pork Tenderloin.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 18-20ºC

ALCOHOL: 14%

4/5

An intense ruby red with occasional brick-toned highlights, the wines aromas are fragrant and fresh with pleasurable notes of red berry fruit and exotic fruit and hints of liquorice, currants, vanilla, and passion fruit. The notes of Chianti Classico-style Sangiovese dominate the nose and fuse perfectly with a Cabernet which is equally important in characterizing this wine. On the palate the wine is highly pleasurable, supple, round, and soft in texture and savory as well. Tonic and vibrant sensations characterize a notably elegant finish and aftertaste.
