Tenute Marchese Antinori Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG

Antinori’s Peppoli is a popular, affordable Chianti, and for a small price premium, there’s a real step up in depth and intensity to the Riserva. Its bouquet exudes lovely complexity of violet perfume, layers of spice shop complexity and notes of dark chocolate. The palate delivers great focus and solid tannin support, fine and textural, finishing long, tight and drying. A Chianti for the long-term. $35 at WineStar.
