Rating
"The 2007 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is a fleshy, radiant wine graced with expressive dark red fruit. This is a fairly plush style for this bottling, no doubt owing to the personality of the vintage. I don’t quite see the delineation or structure of the superb 2006, but in exchange the 2007 is much more pleasing to drink young. Tobacco, sweet herbs, licorice and dark red cherries leave a very positive, lasting impression. The Marchese Antinori is predominantly Sangiovese, with a dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon from the estate’s vineyards in Peppoli, Badia a Passignano and Tignanello. The darker color and flavor profile and presence of Cabernet relative to the 100% Sangiovese Badia a Passignano Riserva makes the Marchese a baby Tignanello of sorts. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020." 91 Points, The Wine Advocate

Wine maker notes
Intense ruby red in color with aromas of blackberry and cherry, along with hints of spice and tobacco from careful aging in barrel. On the palate the wine is concentrated with notes of vanilla and chocolate, supple and soft in tannins and accompanied by the vibrant acidity that characterizes the Sangiovese grape. Th e wine has great complexity and length on the finish.
