Antinori Tenuta Tignanello Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2019
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Chianti Classico|
The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Anitnori is rich, layered and exceptionally polished. This is an especially serious vintage for the Marchese Antinori. All of the fruit comes from the Antinori family's Tignanello estate. Silky tannins wrap around a core of dark red cherry/plum, spice, leather and tobacco. There's tremendous weight, power and depth, that much is pretty clear.
This has enticing aromas recalling ripe plum, fragrant blue flower and oak-driven spice. On the smooth, savory palate, supple, fine-grained tannins accompany juicy Marasca cherry, cassis, vanilla and star anise. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink 2024-2031.
