This Antinori family’s historic label, since the 2011 vintage Marchese Antinori has been produced with grapes exclusively from the Tignanello vineyard. It’s made almost entirely with Sangiovese with a small percentage of other complementary varieties. A wine that fully expresses the quality and elegance of Sangiovese grapes grown in this area. 

Grape variety: Sangiovese

Vinification: Upon arrival in the cellar, the grapes were destemmed, gently crushed; the must was transferred into stainless steel tanks, where alcoholic fermentation occurred in about one week’s time. Very gentle pump overs and délestage techniques were performed during maceration on the skins for an intense extraction while preserving elegant and supple tannins. Malolactic fermentation, which took place spontaneously, was completed by the end of the year. The wine was then blended and went into French and Hungarian oak barriques for approximately one year. Marchese Antinori Riserva was then bottled and given a further twelve-month period of bottle aging before being released. 

Tasting notes: Intense ruby red color. Expressive on the nose with fresh notes of red fruit that lead over to floral hints of mallow and lavender. The rich bouquet is accented by sweet notes of white chocolate that give rise to piquant spicy aromas. Entry on the palate is smooth and mouth filling, followed by elegant flavors with vibrant tannins that express the typical energy of the vineyards of origin. The finish is long, flavorful, and persistent echoing notes of white pepper, cocoa powder, and flowers.

Alcohol content: 14% vol.

Food pairing: Pasta dishes, various meat dishes. 

Serve at 16°-18°C

Awards: A. Galloni 93/100, Wine Spectator 95/100
