2016 Chianti Classico Riserva, Marchesi Antinori, Tenuta Tignanello (6 x Bottle)

Italy Tuscany

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori emerges entirely from Antinori s Tignanello estate. Plump and forward, with juicy dark fruit, the Marchese Antinori is done in a decidedly modern, lush style. Mocha, sweet spice, licorice and black plum meld into the creamy finish. The 2016 is attractive, but I can t help thinking a lighter hand in the cellar might yield a wine with greater finesse and expression of place.
