Vinification The grapes, after destemming and a soft pressing, went into stainless steel fermenting tanks where the fermentation took place at temperatures held to a maximum of 86 °F (30 °C). The period of skin contact during fermentation lasted fifteen days during which various mechanical techniques were utilized to extract, in a controlled manner, aroma, structure, and round and supple tannins.
Aging After the malolactic fermentation, which took place in stainless steel tanks for the Sangiovese and in small oak barrels used once or twice previously for the other grape varieties, the various lots were blended together and continued their aging process, principally in larger casks and partly in barrel, up until the spring.
Alcohol 13.50% by volume

About Antinori Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2016

The 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Villa Antinori (made with Sangiovese and a tiny bit of Merlot to soften out the edges) is a linear and broad red wine that would pair with simple meat or pasta dishes. You get tons of fruit here with cherry, blackberry and a touch of soft baking spice woven in on the close. This pretty vintage is focused and sharp in character. "Robert Parker's Wine Advocate".
