Tasting notes
Intense ruby red with purple hues. Noticeably clear and precise on the nose. Ripe, red cherries, blackberries, warm spices, some peppermint, leather, chocolate and smoke, accompanied by elegant wooden notes. Rich and balanced on the palate. Finely honed tannins of good quality. Soft and juicy structure that is rich in finesse. The aromas of the nose also emerge on the palate. Wonderfully complex and sustained in the finish.

Recommendations
Mediterranean meat dishes such as braised beef with polenta go particularly well with this Riserva.
Vinification
Newly introduced to the Villa Antinori range from the 2011 vintage onwards - the elegant Villa Antinori Chianti Classico docg Riserva. The grapes - 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon - all come exclusively from the family’s own vineyards around Siena. After the harvest, the grapes are destemmed, gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for twelve days below 30°C. By the end of the year, the young wine has finished its malolactic fermentation and is aged for 24 months in French, American and Slavonian barriques.
