Antinori Villa Antinori Rosso 2013
Wine AdvocateHere is one of Marchesi Antinori's battleship red wines. The 2013 Villa Antinori is among the estate's most accessible wines with some 200,000 cases (of 12 bottles each) produced in this vintage. The wine is a blend of Sangiovese fruit sourced from various points in Tuscany (Chianti Classico, Maremma and Bolgheri) with other red grapes. Indeed, this wine serves as testament to the various levels of dry extract and ripeness that can be achieved with Sangiovese depending on where it is planted. What this wine offers most of all is impressive consistency throughout each new vintage released.
Wine SpectatorRich and firmly structured, supporting black cherry, plum and spice flavors. Leans toward the dry side, with enough fruit for balance. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. 10,000 cases imported.
