About Villa Antinori 2014 IGT Toscana Red
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 90 points saying "A linear and fresh red with citrus and dried berry and hints of cedar. Medium body, light tannins and a savory finish."
