Ripe and spicy, featuring cherry, plum, almond and earth flavors. As this plays out on the finish, leather and tobacco notes join the party and the well-integrated structure provides ample support. Best from 2021 through 2035. 6,000 cases imported. BS (4/2019)

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori sees fruit sourced from different sites across the appellation. It is almost all Sangiovese with a tiny percentage of Merlot to flesh it out or give it thicker contours. This wine was not produced in 2014. It was first introduced in 2011, so this is only the fourth vintage of its existence. The bouquet delivers round and supple fruit tones with blackberry and summer cherry at the front. You then get that signature crunchiness or freshness that is derived from the acidity found in Sangiovese. However, the finish is not sharp. This wine ends with soft, velvety tannins. You get very good value here. ML (7/2018)

The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is another very pretty and expressive wine in this range. Soft and inviting, the 2015 will drink well upon release. Crushed flowers, mint and spice are woven together in a wine of superb finesse. Simply put, the 2015 is spot on. (Drink between 2018-2023) AG (2/2019)
