Antinori Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Colli Senesi|
Savory notes dominate the nose of this Chianti Classico Riserva, from tomato and pepper to soil and tobacco leaf, before a rich layer of cherries and chocolate comes through. Cherries and chocolate continue on the palate, with a meaty earthiness that leans into tannins and acid just beginning to mellow pleasantly.
A dense, beefy red, with black cherry, blackberry, earth and iron flavors coursing through. Balanced, in a compact sort of way, with a lingering finish of earth and dark fruit. Bright acidity drives the finish. Best from 2024 through 2033. 6,000 cases imported.
