Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva 2020 is an intense ruby red colour. Expressive on the nose with fresh notes of red fruit that lead over to floral hints of mallow and lavender. The rich bouquet is accented by sweet notes of white chocolate that give rise to piquant spicy aromas. Entry on the palate is smooth and mouth filling, followed by elegant flavours with vibrant tannins that express the typical energy of the vineyards of origin. The finish is long, flavourful,and persistent echoing notes of white pepper, cocoa powder,and flowers.

The Tignanello estate is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico production zone, nestled between the valleys of the Greve and Pesarivers,and extends over close to 800 total acres (319 hectares), some 130 of which (415 hectares)are planted to vines. The vineyards consist principally of the native Sangiovese grape along with such non traditional varieties as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The Marchese Antinori is an historic wine of the Antinori cellars which, since 2011, is produced from the grapes of the Tignanello estate. It isa wine which presents itself as the full expression of the quality and elegance of the Sangiovese of this part of Tuscany."


95/100 Wine Spectator (2020 Vintage)
"A sleek, elegant red, with fine purity to the aromas of cherry, black currant, iron, olive and tobacco. Shows new oak on the palate, lending both spice notes and structure offset by ample fruit and texture. Balanced, complex finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2026 through 2047."


94/100 Decanter (2020 Vintage)
"Dense with fruit concentration, red fruits, a touch of wood spice and dried herbs. Full-bodied with a rich mouthfeel. Long and powerful. Modern and balanced."


93/100 Jeb Dunnuck (2020 Vintage)
"Produced from vines of the Tenuta Tignanello estate, the 2020 Chianti Classico Riserva offers a flashier and riper style with notes of Marasca cherry liqueur, polished leather, toasted vanilla bean, and licorice candy. It is full bodied without being heavy and is rich with plum, cedar, sage, and potting soil. Raised in a combination of French and Hungarian oak barrels for approximately one year, the oak imprint is certainly felt but is very well managed, and the wine wears it well. Drink 2025-2040."


92/100 Vinous (2020 Vintage)​
"The 2020 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori, all from the Tignanello estate, is packed with black cherry, spice, new leather, licorice and dried flowers. A dollop of Merlot adds plush contours, but this is a pretty pushed style, that works well here."
