Deep ruby red with light garnet hues, it has pronounced cherry and violet fruit with tobacco nuances on the nose. It is a full-bodied and rounded red wine of remarkable depth and structure.
James Suckling 93 points - The 2009 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori (Sangiovese with 10% Cabernet) offers a different interpretation of the appellation with a deeper color and extra concentration. There’s a sweet chocolate note on the finish that is contrasted against savory tones of dark spice and tobacco. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
