2016 Marchese Antinori Tenuta Tignanello Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva
The Wine Advocate, 9/19
2011 first vintage sourced exclusively from Tignanello estate vineyard.
Antinori’s winemaking legacy spans 26 generations and over 625 years.
An age-worthy wine with remarkable depth, structure and length. Region is quite varied, with altitudes ranging from 820-2,000 feet.
As a Riserva: spends a minimum of 2 years in oak aging.
Intense ruby red color. On the nose, notes of ripe red fruit fuse with hints of vanilla and spice. The palate is ample, enveloping and balanced, but also deep and savory with supple and silky tannins. A wine of real character, further characterized by a long and persistent finish and aftertaste.
