This Antinori family’s historic label, since the 2011 vintage Marchese Antinori has been produced with grapes exclusively from the Tignanello vineyard. It’s made almost entirely with Sangiovese with a small percentage of other complementary varieties. A wine that fully expresses the quality and elegance of Sangiovese grapes grown in this area. Since the 2011 vintage the historical label Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is made only with fruit sourced from the Tignanello estate, making it the perfect introduction to the flagship wine.
The Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva shows an intense ruby red colour. 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 characterised by a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.
A Riserva Chianti such as this beautiful one from Antinori adds a wonderful depth to a Wild Boar dish - the tomato, balsamic and oregano notes are intensified when eaten with a rich slow-cooked Wild Boar ragù.
