Based in an authentic sense of territory, the 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot - although Renzo Cotarella tells me that the goal is to soon make this wine 100% Sangiovese. The bouquet is generous and nicely concentrated with dark fruit nuances and succulent spice at the back. Delicate floral nuances of wild rose and violets are given ample room for expression. The mouthfeel is velvety and fine in texture.

You'll find alluring aromas of fragrant blue flower, wild berry, menthol, dried herb and a whiff of exotic spice on this radiant red. The juicy palate shows surprising richness for the vintage, doling out ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, vanilla and cinnamon alongside polished, fine-grained tannins that leave a firm finish.

Fresh and vibrant, this red displays cherry, strawberry, tobacco, spice and mineral flavors. The firm structure lends plenty of support and the finish evokes tobacco, earth and underbrush notes. Best from 2018 through 2023. 7,125 cases imported.
