Vineyard Villa Antinori began life as a Chianti Classico Riserva, and is still grown on Antinori's Chianti estates, including Tenuta Tignanello, while enjoying increased blending flexibility from the more relaxed IGT rules.

After destemming and gentle crushing, maceration lasted eight to twelve days in stainless steel vats. During this phase the wine completed fermentation at differing temperatures for the various varieties. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was placed in a mixture of French, American and Hungarian oak barrels for twelve months. The wine was then aged in bottle for at least eight months prior to release.

Taste Intense ruby red colour with aromas of ripe fruits, plum, mint, chocolate, and tobacco. Complex, stylish palate with a soft mouthfeel.

Producer Information

The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the TIgnanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany's - arguably Italy's pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia.
