Antinori Chianti Classico Villa Antinori Riserva 2018

Villa Antinori is, first and foremost, an idea, a way of conceiving the production of wine: on the one hand, experimentation and evolution, on the other hand, continuity in tradition. Sangiovese and other complementary grape varieties render their homage to a historic label and a wine with a long tradition,: this name, in fact, is almost 100 years old, as the wine was produced for the first time in the 1928 vintage. With the inauguration of the Antinori Chianti Classico cellars, the family wished to reinterpret a Tuscan classic with a Riserva offering which is both delicate and, at the same time, elegant and decisive in flavour.

Colour

Ruby red.

Bouquet

The nose shows intensely fruity notes of ripe cherries, red currants, and wild berry fruit along with well integrated notes of toasted oak and tobacco, and a touch of balsamic sensations.

Flavour

The palate is ample and enveloping, savoury, soft in its tannins and velvety in texture. The finish and aftertaste are long and persistent.

Fermentation temperature 86 °F (30 °C)
Vinification The grapes, after destemming and a soft pressing, went into stainless steel fermenting tanks where the fermentation took place at temperatures held to a maximum of 86 °F (30 °C). The period of skin contact during fermentation lasted 15 days during which various mechanical techniques were utilized to extract, in a controlled manner, aroma, structure, and round and supple tannins.
Ageing After the malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks for the Sangiovese and in small oak barrels used once or twice previously for the other grape varieties, the various lots were blended together and continued their ageing process, principally in larger casks and partly in barrel, up until the Spring.
