Antinori Chianti Classico Marchese Antinori Riserva 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): Tasted next to the 2011, the 2010 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is fresher, brighter and a touch more focused. Dark red and black stone fruits, leather, smoke and grilled herbs jump from the glass in a vibrant, delineated Chianti Classico with good energy and tension. Wilder, gamier notes add complexity on the dark, brooding finish. Drink: 2016-2025. (Sep 2014)

Villa Antinori is a prominent wine estate in Tuscany, Italy. Wine has been produced by the Antinori family since they came to Florence in the 14th century. The family estate, Palazzo Antinori, was purchased in Tuscany in 1506, and later that century, banker and merchant Alessandro Antinori began to produce the wines made there commercially. Generations later, in 1928, Marquis Niccolò Antinori officially created the Villa Antinori brand, with the intention of producing an elegant Chianti fit for longevity. The wine was soon found in the cellars and on the tables of of some of the most prestigious houses, restaurants and hotels. In 1931, Villa Antinori began producing a white wine from Trebbiano, and in the 1980s, Chardonnay was added to the blend for elegance. In 2001, the estate added the production of Super Tuscans to their growing portfolio. In addition to table wines, Villa Antinori also produces sparkling wines, grappa and olive oil.  Read less

I was very delighted by the Deep Color and rich nose on first spill. ** The wine seemed to be enjoyed from the bottle but was asked to be decanted -. I am sure the wine became richer by the moment. Deep and ready to drink now. Enjoy. Mille Gratis Antinori

Antinori s 2010 Tignanello is stunning as it has been since I started tasting the component wines in 2011. Firm yet sweet silky tannins form the backbone for this gorgeous vivid wine. Dark red cherries plums cloves mint and sage inform a Tignanello that impresses for its delineation nuance and power. Clean saline notes support the mineral-drenched finish. The 2010 isn t huge but rather is a vertical wine endowed with tremendous energy and vibrancy. I can t remember a Tignanello with thi

A very intense ruby red in color with purple highlights, the wine is immediately and suavely convincing in its aromas and harmonious in its expression of the characteristics of Chianti Classico as a zone. The nose is redolent of licorice, violets, and cherries under spirits together with notes of vanilla, chocolate, and sweet toasty oak, all of excellent intensity and sweet elegance. Fresh and savory flavors on the persistent finish add length and finesse.

According to Antonio Galloni - I can't remember a Tignanello with this much crystalline tension and pure energy. Simply put, the 2010 Tignanello is a magnificent, towering wine from Antinori.

Humming with energy and life from the very moment you put your nose in the glass, Marchesi Antinori’s 2010 Tignanello shows magnificent aromatic layering and an enormous capacity to peel back and reveal itself in beautiful slow motion. This is an articulate wine with a long story to tell about the quality of its profound 2010 fruit. This Tignanello has the elegance of 2004 and the structure of 2007. A brief note on the structure: The mouthfeel here is not broad and big. Instead, it shows a sharp and elegantly streamlined feel with impressive persistency. Compared to 2009, the Sangiovese component is slightly higher with 80% of the noble Tuscan variety followed by 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2035.

Marked by new oak, this red reveals cherry, currant, vanilla, smoke and chocolate flavors, backed by a powerful rearguard of tannins. Stays fresh through the lingering finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2032.

Sattes Rubinrot. In der Nase eine dichte Aromadecke, Zedernholz, warme Gewürze und Kräuter gepaart mit Komponenten von Süssholz und schwarzer Frucht. Im Gaumen ein kraftvoller, energetischer Auftakt, aber trotzdem geschmeidig. Saftige Säure, strukturierende Tannine von Top-Qualität. Zu den Aromen der Nase gesinnt sich eine kompakte Frucht und ein Touch Leder. Der Abgang ist ausgewogen und von langer, aromatischer Nachhaltigkeit.
