Winemaker Notes

The Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva opens with aromas of red fruit with notes of balsamic and spice. On the palate, flavors of berries and earth are supported by a firm structure and supple tannins. The flavors are balanced, with light acidity - typical of the Sangiovese grape.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
Ripe and spicy, featuring cherry, plum, almond and earth flavors. As this plays out on the finish, leather and tobacco notes join the party and the wellintegrated structure provides ample support.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori sees fruit sourced from different sites across the appellation. It is almost all Sangiovese with a tiny percentage of Merlot to flesh it out or give it thicker contours. This wine was not produced in 2014. It was first introduced in 2011, so this is only the fourth vintage of its existence. The bouquet delivers round and supple fruit tones with blackberry and summer cherry at the front. You then get that signature crunchiness or freshness that is derived from the acidity found in Sangiovese. However, the finish is not sharp. This wine ends with soft, velvety tannins. You get very good value here.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Flavors of strawberry and black cherry mingle with notes of grilled herbs and black spices in this soft, rounded red, a wine with wide appeal.

The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.

Chianti Classico Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

One of the first wine regions anywhere to be officially recognized and delimited, Chianti Classico is today what was originally defined simply as Chianti. Already identified by the early 18th century as a superior zone, the official name of Chianti was proclaimed upon the area surrounding the townships of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, just north of Siena, by Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany in an official decree in 1716.

However, by the 1930s the Italian government had appended this historic zone with additonal land in order to capitalize on the Chianti name. It wasn’t until 1996 that Chianti Classico became autonomous once again when the government granted a separate DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) to its borders. Ever since, Chianti Classico considers itself no longer a subzone of Chianti.

Many Classicos are today made of 100% Sangiovese but can include up to 20% of other approved varieties grown within the Classico borders. The best Classicos will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and be full-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit (plums, black cherry, blackberry). Also common among the best Classicos are expressive notes of cedar, dried herbs, fennel, balsamic or tobacco.
