2016 Tignanello Marchesi Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva (750ml)

Sangiovese from Chianti, Tuscany, Italy


The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori emerges entirely from Antinori's Tignanello estate. Plump and forward, with juicy dark fruit, the Marchese Antinori is done in a decidedly modern, lush style. Mocha, sweet spice, licorice and black plum meld into the creamy finish. The 2016 is attractive, but I can't help thinking a lighter hand in the cellar might yield a wine with greater finesse and expression of place.

92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Jul 2019)

This is a plush and velvety Chianti Classico, with ample notes of toasted vanilla and baking spices that cushion the red cherry and plum tones. The wine shows good freshness and acidity, suggesting a few years in the cellar will allow the fruit and oak to further integrate.
