"The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchesi Antinori positively sparkles on the palate. Dark wild cherries, minerals, graphite, violets and spices are just some of the nuances that flow effortlessly from this beautiful, chiseled Riserva Marchesi Antinori.

For a stint in the 70s and 80s, wines labeled Chianti contained cheap red wine packaged in a straw casked bottle, most popular for the candle holder it would become. But no more.
