Antinori - Villa Antinori Rosso 2008-10Classic Tuscan Red
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.
