Description

From 2010 on Villa Antinori has found a second youth and, with the opening of the new Chianti Classico cellars, a new home as well.  The Antinori family, with this offering, has wished to render homage to an historic label and a wine with a long tradition. The first vintage was the 1928 and, up until the year 2000, the wine represented over time the house’s concept of Chianti Classico.
Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva is obtained from 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet. The grapes were given a soft destemming and pressing, and the must went into stainless steel fermenting tanks, where it fermented for a week at temperatures held to a maximum of 28-30 °C. The period of skin contact, which lasted an additional eight or nine days, was managed with soft extraction techniques aimed at a complete extraction but one which preserved the suppleness of the tannins as well. After the malolactic fermentation, which took place in stainless steel tanks for the Sangiovese and in oak barrels for the Cabernet. A master blend of the wine was made and went in big barrels and partially in small barrels of Hungarian oak until Spring. 

TASTING NOTES

The Villa Rosso Chianti Classico Riserva is an intense ruby red in colour. The nose shows notes of red berry fruit, particularly red currants and raspberries, which blend with aromas of cherries. Light oak notes fuse with spicy sensations, cinnamon and candied fruit. The flavors are balanced, with the light and tonic acidity typical of the Sangiovese grape and silky and vibrant tannins which give additional pleasure on the finish. Fruity and lightly oaky sensation linger on the aftertaste. We recommend serving it at a temperature of 16-18 °C.

FOOD MATCHING SUGGESTIONS

Grilled red meat is the ideal companion, but even the most elaborate and sustained appetizers are the right choice to match with. We leave space for game dishes or seasoned cheeses too.

During this entire long period, thorough twenty six generations, the family has always directly managed this work with courageous and, at times, innovative decisions, but always maintaining, unaltered, a fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated.
