Antinori is a world famous producer of Tuscan wines, their history going back literally centuries. The Villa Antinori is the estate where the Chianti Classico wines have been produced for many years. This wine is a natural progression from their Chianti Classico. As the Antinoris recognized how non-native grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah raised the level of quality of their wine they started blending more and more and finally could no longer use the DOC designation and so it became a Super Tuscan IGT. But the quality they’ve reached is exceptional, especially as they’ve experimented more with aging in small oak barrels. A wine that over-delivers every vintage. James Suckling scored this 91 points saying "A silky and delicious red with tile, berry and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Linear and structured. Affordable quality Super Tuscan."
