The Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori shows just how privileged hillside sites were in 2014. Delicate and nuanced in the glass, it offers lovely depth to its dark cherry, kirsch, mint, rose petal, spice, leather and lavender flavors. Supple and inviting, the 2014 will drink well for at least a handful of years. Sadly, production is down around 30%. The Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico is essentially the second wine of the flagship Tignanello.
Score: 90 points -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2017
