More information on wine critics and ratings

The wine is placed in new barriques where it completes malolactic fermentation by the end of the year and is aged in barriques for about 14 months. This is followed by 12 months maturing in the bottles.

Spicy hints of cinnamon and cloves, alongside oaky and piquant peppery aromas. A rounded, creamy, sweet and well-balanced palate is followed by an aftertaste of incense, balsamic notes and cherry.

History of Antinori In 1385, the Antinori family became part of the wine business when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine Vintner's Guild. Since 1966, Marchese Piero Antinori, son of Marchese Niccolò, has run the company with his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, also playing an active role. For more than 26 generations now, Antinori's philosophy has been based on the combination of both tradition and innovation: to preserve Italy's enological… Read more

Wine Spectator (WS) : 93 Points (2018)
Cherry, black currant and raspberry flavors are at the heart of this red, flanked by vanilla, toasty oak, mineral and tobacco elements. There is a beam of ripe fruit and dusty tannins right through the long finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2018)
This wine is made exclusively with fruit from the gorgeous Tenuta Tignanello in San Casciano Val di Pesa (home to its namesake wine Tignanello, and Solaia) and sees mostly Sangiovese blended with a smaller part Cabernet Sauvignon and other complementary grapes. The Marchesi Antinori 2018 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori vaunts a smooth and silky personality with ample berry definition and brightness. The previous 2017 vintage revealed more black and purple fruits because of the scorching hot and dry summer that year, but this wine from the cooler 2018 growing season focuses on red raspberry and cherry instead. That fruit is framed by light spice (from Hungarian and French oak) and licorice.

James Suckling (JS) : 92 Points (2018)
This is very lively and energetic with fine tannins and a long, focused finish. Aromatic and bright with berries, plums and flowers. Medium body. with savory acidity and a long finish. 90% sangiovese with some cabernet and merlot. Drink now.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2016)
This is a plush and velvety Chianti Classico, with ample notes of toasted vanilla and baking spices that cushion the red cherry and plum tones. The wine shows good freshness and acidity, suggesting a few years in the cellar will allow the fruit and oak to further integrate.

Decanter (DCT) : 90 Points (2015)
As of the 2011 vintage, the grapes for this wine come exclusively from Antinori's Tignanello vineyard in San Casciano in Val di Pesa. Similar to its big brother, Sangiovese is rounded out with Cabernet Sauvignon (plus Merlot) and ageing is in a combination of small French and Hungarian oak barrels. It's on the dark end of the fruit spectrum, revealing brambly blackberry flavours, though polished leather, tobacco and wood spice add dimension. While it is overall polished, the tannins have a stern edge.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2014)
Aromas of tilled soil, plum cake, exotic spice and a whiff of toasted oak come to the forefront of the nose. Elegantly structured, the taut, linear palate doles out wild cherry, cranberry, licorice, crushed herb and clove set against vibrant acidity and fine-grained tannins. Drink from 2019–2024.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2013)
Black cherry plum, new leather, smoke, licorice and tobacco flesh out in the 2013 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori. Dark, racy and inviting, the 2013 offers plenty of near-term appeal, but it should also drink well for another handful of years. 91+ (AG) (10/2016)

Il Matarocchio was inspired by the desire to create, at the Guado al Tasso estate, a wine that was the maximum expression both of a single grape variety and a single vineyard plot. Il Matarocchio was born precisely from one of these sites and is a wine of great elegance and depth, one which springs exclusively from its source of origin and from a remarkable vintage.

Cont’Ugo is produced entirely with Merlot as a new interpretation of the Bolgheri territory. The vineyards grow at an altitude that varies between 45 and 60 meters (147/196 feet) above sea level on clay-loam soils that are of alluvial origin that give the wine deep complex notes while preserving the fragrance and freshness typical of Merlot berries.
