Intense ruby red in color. The wine opens with intense aromas of ripe cherries, spice, chocolate and hints of mint. The wine is full-bodied with a palate of rich fruit and spice. The tannins are round and velvety and lead to a lingering finish.
Blend: 55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Syrah
"A red with depth and richness, boasting black cherry, blackberry and tobacco notes. Requires some time to absorb
its tannins, yet this is well-proportioned. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2014 through 2022.
"The 2008 Villa Antinori comes across as richer, darker and weightier than the 2007 tasted alongside it. Black cherries, smoke, licorice and tar are some of the notes that emerge from this powerful entry-level red. A long, intense finish rounds things out nicely. Villa Antinori is predominantly Sangiovese, with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014."
