Tasting note

2019 Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva

From the Tenuta Tignanello of Marchese Antinori comes the second wine of the Tignanello. This blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon is still youthful and impetuous at the moment. Dark colour with ruby rim. Spicy aromas of rosemary and liquorice with plenty of sweetness and dark fruits. A hint of mint in the background. Astringent in the mouth with a gripping acidity. Blackcurrant, blackberry, vanilla. Dry and slightly bitter on the finish. The barrique is still brash and will surely harmonise better with the fruit as it matures. Potential for more. I would leave this vintage until 2025.

Drink from 2025 through 2030.
