About Marchese Antinori 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva, Tignanello Estate

This Chianti is a signature wine for Antinori and is consistently one of the most outstanding wines from the Chianti Classico region. Since 2011, it has been produced exclusively from a selection of the grapes of the Tignanello estate. Upon arriving in the cellars, the grapes are destemmed and the berries carefully selected on sorting tables. The grapes are handled with the express purpose of preserving all their aromas and components; highly important both for the Sangiovese and for the Cabernet as well. Once in the stainless steel fermenting tanks, the fermentation itself lasts approximately a week and is followed by a nine or ten day period of skin contact. After being run off its skins, the wine goes immediately into small oak barrels, principally of French oak. Still separated on the basis of its vineyard source, the wine is aged for approximately a year in French and Hungarian oak barrels. At the end of the aging period the wine is bottled and given an additional twelve month aging in bottle in preparation for release. 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.


The Wine Spectator scored this 93 point saying "Tantalizing aromas and flavors of black cherry and black currant are shaded by toasty, spicy oak in this harmonious yet well-structured red. This is fluid, packed with mouthcoating tannins, energetic and long. Best from 2020 through 2036."
