Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is ruby red in color. The nose shows intensely fruity notes of ripe cherries, red currants, and wild berry fruit along with well integrated notes of toasted oak and tobacco, and a touch of balsamic sensations. The palate is ample and enveloping, savory, soft in its tannins and velvety in texture. The finish and aftertaste are long and persistent.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is bright, floral and punchy, with all the qualities of this great vintage very much on display. Freshly cut flowers, sweet red cherry, mint, blood orange and white pepper give the Villa Antinori gorgeous aromatic top notes that convey brilliance.

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. 5,000 cases imported.
