Antinori Chianti Classico Villa Antinori Riserva 2018

$35

An intense red, with an accent of vanilla shading the cherry, raspberry, woodsy and tobacco flavors. On the long finish, a resinous note emerges as this winds down. Although balanced, this still needs time to integrate the oaky elements. Drink now through 2033. 6,000 cases imported.
