Antinori Chianti Classico Badia a Passignano Gran Selezione 2019

$60

A dense, rich red highlighted by black cherry, blackberry and blueberry flavors, with flashes of vanilla and toasty oak underscored by mineral and wild herbs. Shows fine balance and texture, with a tannic structure emerging on the earth-tinged finish, suggesting this will need another two to three years before hitting its stride. One for the cellar. Best from 2025 through 2043. 1,100 cases imported.

Summary

Grape

Sangiovese

The name Sangiovese comes from the Latin sanguis Jovis, meaning "blood of Jove." Its color mirrors its etymology: The wines range from brick red to copper-tinged, and can be quite concentrated. Although the grape is originally from southern Italy, the central region of Tuscany boasts the best Sangiovese wines in the world. It is the most widely planted grape variety in the country.
