ANTINORI MARCHESE CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA 17
Antinori's Chianti Classico is an outstanding full bodied blend of Tuscany's stock in trade red grape, Sangiovese, with Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc in the mix for good measure. Grapes in this wine come from the famous and highly regarded Tignanello Vineyard; one of Tuscany's most respected sites.
The wine was aged for two years; the first one in oak (French and Hungarian), the second year in bottle, pre release.
The result is a top wine for drinking now, served in your largest glassware after decanting, and it will also age superbly for at least a decade in a cool, dark cellar.
