Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva
Blend: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet
Upon arriving in the cellars, the grapes were destemmed and the berries carefully selected on sorting tables and then pressed in a manner aimed at preserving all their aromas and components, a highly important phase both for the Sangiovese and for the Cabernet as well. Once in the stainless steel fermenting tanks, the must was macerated with soft extraction techniques in order to assure an extraction which was at the same time both intense and suitable for preserving elegance and suppleness in the texture. The fermentation itself lasted approximately a week and was followed by a nine or ten day period of skin contact. After being run off its skins, the wine went immediately into small oak barrels, principally of French oak, where it went through a complete malolactic fermentation which took place by the end of the year. The wine was then racked and, still separated on the basis of its vineyard source, was aged for approximately a year in French and Hungarian oak barrels. At the end of the aging period the wine was bottled and given an additional twelve month aging period in bottle in preparation for release.
The Marchese Antinori Riserva has been produced since 2011 exclusively from a selection of the grapes of the Tignanello estate, located at Mercatale Val di Pesa in the Chianti Classico production zone.
An intense ruby red with purple highlights in color, the aromatic gamut of the Marchese Antinori ranges from ripe red fruit, with perceptible notes of wild cherries and cherries under spirits to tobacco, leather, and spices. The initial palate sensations are very soft with an excellent balance between tannins and acidity. The finish is richly flavorful and pleasurable and is quite lasting and sustained.
