Brand Antinori
The 2011 Villa Rosso Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva, an intense ruby red in color, features an equally intense nose of red fruit, raspberries, and blueberries, followed by hints of oak and spices, particularly cloves, on the aromatic finish. On the palate, the wine is immediately vibrant and very territorial in character. The tannins are supple but well present. The finish and aftertaste are fruity and the light notes of oak long and lingering.

This delicious wine opens with aromas of violet, iris, underbrush, black fruit and cinnamon-spice notes. The concentrated palate delivers a solid core of rich black cherry accented with notes of black pepper and Mediterranean herbs alongside firm tannins that carry on to the finish.

Black cherry, cedar, tobacco and incense aromas and flavors are matched to a finely grained structure in this red. The finish is austere, so temper with food. A cocoa accent lingers. Drink now through 2020. 14,000 cases imported.

The 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori is simple wine with a great sense of fresh cherry fruit at its core. The bouquet is embellished with touches of crushed mineral and soft baking spice that add a moderate degree of complexity. What this wine will ultimately be remembered for is as a food-friendly option to pair with oven-roasted pasta, lasagna or other homemade Italian meals for family and friends.
