Tasting Notes

Robert Parker: 90 Points
The 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is Sangiovese that has been enhanced by small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruit is sourced from the various properties owned by the Antinori family in the Chianti Classico appellation such as Badia a Passignano, Tenuta Tignanello and Peppoli. The family just bought a new property called San Sano near Castello di Ama and some of that fruit was used here too. This wine shows very nice ripeness with luscious, dark fruit flavors backed by spice and leather. (ML) (10/2015)

Antonio Galloni's Notes: 90 Points
Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, spices and mint flesh out in the 2012 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori. Rich and sumptuous in the glass, with considerable richness, the 2012 shows the darker, more voluptuous side of Chianti Classico. Even with all of its intensity, the 2012 retains considerable freshness. Dollops of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon round out the blend. (AG) (9/2015)

James Suckling's Notes: 92 Points
Very aromatic with dark fruits, dried meats and flowers that follow through to a full body, round tannins and a fresh finish. Tangy and delectable. This is always a delicious Chianti Classico Riserva. (8/2015)
