With the opening of the new Chianti Classico cellars, the Antinori family wished to render homage to an historic label and to a wine with a long-standing tradition: the Villa Rosso Chianti Classico Riserva. The first vintage was the 1928 and, up until the year 2000, it represented, over time, the Antinori concept of a Chianti Classico Riserva.
In 2010, the Villa Rosso Chianti Classico Riserva returned once again to the years of its youth and, in 2011, to its home.
The Villa Rosso Chianti Classico Riserva is an intense ruby red in color. The nose shows notes of red berry fruit, particularly red currants and raspberries, which blend with aromas of cherries. Light oak notes fuse with spicy sensations, cinnamon and candied fruit. The flavors are balanced, with the light and tonic acidity typical of the Sangiovese grape and silky and vibrant tannins which give additional pleasure on the finish. Fruity and lightly oaky sensation linger on the aftertaste.
