External Reviews for Antinori Marchese Chianti Riserva
An intense ruby red with aromas of blackberries and cherries under spirits along with sensation of spice and tobacco from the careful aging in barrel. On the palate the wine is very solid with notes of vanilla and chocolate, supple and soft in its tannins and accompanied by the vibrant acidity which characterizes the Sangiovese grape as a variety. The complexity and length on the finish are excellent.
Tuscany, ItalyMarchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is produced exclusively from the finest, most highly selected grapes grown on the Antinori estates of Santa Cristina, Pppoli and Badia a Passignano in the Mercatale Val di Pesa zone of the Chianti Classico region. The wine is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. For this outstanding 2007 vintage, the wine received a rating of 91 points from Robert Parker. At Wine Gems, we simply call it a red wine gem!Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is dark ruby-garnet in color. On the nose, it has pronounced cherry and violet notes with nuances of tobacco. The wine is full-bodied with remarkable depth and structure. On the palate, it shows flavors of blackberry, raspberry, chocolate and spice. Aged for 14 months in 225-liter French oak barrels (Alliers & Troncais) for added richness and complexity, it spends another full year in bottle before release. Beautifully balanced to enjoy now, this red has the potential to reward cellaring for another 8-10 years. It is long and silky smooth on the finish.Enjoy Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva with osso bucco, lasagna, veal Milanese, grilled vegetables, and aged cheeses.
Always one of the most outstanding Chianti Classico Riservas. Wine Advocate scored this 2007 91 points saying "The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is a fleshy, radiant wine graced with expressive dark red fruit. This is a fairly plush style for this bottling, no doubt owing to the personality of the vintage... pleasing to drink young. Tobacco, sweet herbs, licorice and dark red cherries leave a very positive, lasting impression. The Marchese Antinori is predominantly Sangiovese, with a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate’s vineyards in Peppoli, Badia a Passignano and Tignanello. The darker color and flavor profile and presence of Cabernet relative to the 100% Sangiovese Badia a Passignano Riserva makes the Marchese a baby Tignanello of sorts. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."
Intensives Rubinrot mit purpurroten Reflexen; in der Nase breitgefächerte Aromatik von Sauerkirschen, Brombeeren, Leder, etwas Unterholz und Rauch, begleitet von eleganten Barriquenoten. Im Gaumen gehaltvoll, mit geschliffenen Tanninen und frischer Säure. Lang im Abgang mit herrlicher Komplexität.
