Product Description


Tuscany, Italy

Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is produced exclusively from the finest, most highly selected grapes grown on the Antinori estates of Santa Cristina, Pèppoli and Badia a Passignano in the Mercatale Val di Pesa zone of the Chianti Classico region. The wine is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. For this outstanding 2007 vintage, the wine received a rating of 91 points from Antonio Galloni for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. At Wine Gems, we simply call it a red wine gem!

Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is dark ruby-garnet in color. On the nose, it has pronounced cherry and violet notes with nuances of tobacco. The wine is full-bodied with remarkable depth and structure. On the palate, it shows flavors of blackberry, raspberry, chocolate and spice. Aged for 14 months in 225-liter French oak barrels (Alliers & Troncais) for added richness and complexity, it spends another full year in bottle before release. Beautifully balanced to enjoy now, this red has the potential to reward cellaring for another 8-10 years. It is long and silky smooth on the finish.

Enjoy Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva with osso bucco, lasagna, veal Milanese, grilled vegetables, and aged cheeses.
