If you prefer rich dark interpretations, Antinori’s Chianti Classico from the generous 2015 vintage is one for you. Texturally it’s soft and silky with fine long tannins. Solid depth and length. Dark fruits, spices and a little earthiness layer in nicely. The ripeness makes it a very approachable wine straight out of the box.
90% Sangiovese 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
Throughout the 1970’s, Tenuta Tignanello was a sort of laboratory for Marchesi Antinori, a center for new viticultural research and development as they introduced new winemaking techniques and new varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Innovations concerning vine density or pruning techniques and the selection of the Sangiovese grape were always intended to obtain grapes with concentrated fruit and soft tannins. In this unique terroir, Sangiovese and Cabernet are able to fully express their own distinctive personalities and reflect the territory’s signature characteristics.
Decades of work have come together to give us some of the best interpretations of the Sangio Cab blend coming out of Tuscany.
