A very nice and rounded Chianti, not as good as the 2010, however, but very soft tannins and nicely textured

I always love tasting this wine. Tobacco, wilted basil, black plum, game and pepper. Round and caressing, yet still expressive of Sangiovese’s herby character. A favorite in the Antinori portfolio.

Sour cherries w/ black licorice, mild heat with grippy tannins. Quite good!

Took some time to open - velvety and more fruit forward than expected. Much prefer the 2009. Still a great reminder of a lesser known Antinori gem. Gotta love BYOB at Hillstone.

Darker fruits version of Sangiovese. Still good acidity. Nice tannins.

This is second time following 2010 vintage. This is also good. Oak and fruity aroma with juicy taste from black fruits. A bit spicy and vanilla flavor which is this winery's special. 1 hour, found sweetness in aroma. @5200, Tuscany-TH, 171008-180512

Had in Florence with friends. Deep dark red. I usually don't prefer One of the best Chianti's I've had.
