My first memory of a Super Tuscan, it was drank in Sofia Bulgaria in June 2009 and was a fantastic experience to try world class Sangiovese for the first time. Intense fruit flavours with wonderful length, I think the profile was blackberry fruit dominant with quite well balanced silky tannins

Super-Tuscan style at a modest price, this wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. You can taste the French grapes in the deeper, plush flavors and aromas of plum and cassis. There is spice and herbal notes as well with a bright aftertaste. Good with food.

91 points. This wine has really sweet and supple raspberry and cherry notes on the nose. There is also a very delicate touch of pepper, some soft floral notes, and some orange peel and cloves. I also pick up on something that reminds me of cooked carrots mixed in with some berry bush tones and a little cream and spice. It opens sweet and rich on the palate with really nice spicy, black stone components. I get a faint root beer creaminess with some very appealing chocolate and cashew notes. There is a little coastal minerality with some plum jam and a touch of herbs. This wine is perfectly balanced between ripe, almost jammy, fruit and firm tannins. Really rich, smooth, and intense, this is a great example of why this appellation is so popular. Very nice stuff and priced right for the quality, definitely Worth Trying.

Lots of oak and cedar in nose, with a bit of Sangiovese in background. Flavors very coarse, and finish sharp. Antinori started with good grapes and ruined it with too much oak. Bad wine making! International style at its worst.

Deep ruby red color, the Tignanello '04 looks like class before you even pick up the glass. The nose is exceptionally fresh and quickly gives up aromas of blackcurrent, spices, herbs, cherries and tobacco. A well balanced, smooth palate has perfect tannins and a smooth, long finish. Superb.

Full of flavor, great over a full steak dinner spread. One of the finest of the super tuscans.

Wine Tasting NotesIntense ruby red color. Fruity hints on the nose blend well with the toasty, chocolate and vanilla notes from ageing in wood. A complex, harmonious and well-structured wine with smooth tannins and persistant fruity hints.

Scored 91Pts - Wine Advocate Tasting Notes - Antinori’s flagship Chianti, the 2004 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchesi Antinori, reveals greater depth, vibrancy and freshness. Ripe black cherries, new leather, menthol, smoke and wild herbs flow from this sweet, layered Chianti. The wine is approachable today, but also has the tannic backbone and stuffing to insure another decade or so of very fine drinking. It spent 14 months in small French oak barrels prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Red berries and light oaky aromas on this red. Unobtrusive tannins make it go well with a huge range of meat dishes.

Mixed grapes: 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. Deep red colour with a tobacco, curry, blackberry and blackcurrent frangance. The wine transmits a sweet sensation and reveals a Tignanello particulary soft tasting.

2004 Marchese Antinori Riserva Chianti Classico DOCG - Italy - Region: Toscane - Apellation: Chianti Classico - Sangiovese - 750 ml.


External Review
05/23/2011

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 2005 vintage, the wine received ratings of 91 points from Robert Parker and Wine Spectator and 90 points from Stephen Tanzer. 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.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Tignanello (85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) presents a livelier shade of ruby along with fresher aromatics and flavors. Deeply expressive, it reveals black cherries, licorice, tar and sweet toasted oak on a linear, silky-textured frame of great class and elegance, showing outstanding presence on the palate and fine tannins to round out the finish.
