Wine SpectatorRipe and spicy, featuring cherry, plum, almond and earth flavors. As this plays out on the finish, leather and tobacco notes join the party and the well-integrated structure provides ample support. Best from 2021 through 2035.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori sees fruit sourced from different sites across the appellation. It is almost all Sangiovese with a tiny percentage of Merlot to flesh it out or give it thicker contours. This wine was not produced in 2014. It was first introduced in 2011, so this is only the fourth vintage of its existence. The bouquet delivers round and supple fruit tones with blackberry and summer cherry at the front. You then get that signature crunchiness or freshness that is derived from the acidity found in Sangiovese. However, the finish is not sharp. This wine ends with soft, velvety tannins. You get very good value here.
