Winery Notes:

Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2016 presents an intense ruby red as a color. The nose shows notes of ripe red fruit, wild cherries and sensations of dried wild flowers along with spicy aromas of cinnamon and a pleasurable balsamic finish. The palate is balanced, savory, and vibrant with a long and persistent aftertaste which brings back the wine’s ample spicy aromas and flavors.

Black currant, cedar, olive, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors suggest Cabernet in the blend, in a positive sense. This red is fluid, elegant and firmly structured, with fine balance and a long, gripping finish. The taut profile shows the potential for aging. Best from 2022 through 2038. 6,000 cases imported.

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori (made with Sangiovese and a tiny bit of Merlot to soften out the edges) is a linear and broad red wine that would pair with simple meat or pasta dishes. You get tons of fruit here with cherry, blackberry and a touch of soft baking spice woven in on the close. This pretty vintage is focused and sharp in character.

A firm and fresh Chianti Classico with wet earth and spice and hints of mushrooms. Full-to medium-bodied, structured and tannic, yet very polished and refined. Delicious and elegant. Drink now or hold.

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.
