Precipitation and cooler than usual temperatures marled the month of May and the first half of June, days which, nonetheless, did not influence critical phases of flowering and bud set. A warm and dry summer enabled the achievement of a high-level balance of grapes and vegetation and guaranteed a perfect ripening of the crop. The harvest period was a regular one with occasional moments of rain and long periods of sun and breezes, assisting an ideal period of ripening of all of the varieties which were planted. The picking was carried out during the second half of the month of September and terminated during the month of October.

The grapes, after destemming and after being given a delicate pressing, went into stainless steel fermenting tanks where it went through a long fermentation process at a controlled temperature maintained at a level no higher than 86th Fahrenheit (30th Centigrade). The maceration on the grape skins lasted about fifteen days during which time soft and controlled extraction techniques were utilized to attain aroma, structure, and sweet tannins.

Villa Antinori is, first and foremost, an idea, a way of conceiving the production of wine: on the one hand, experimentation and evolution, on the other hand, continuity in tradition. Sangiovese and other complementary grape varieties render their homage to a historic label and a wine with a long tradition,: this name, in fact, is almost one hundred years old, as the wine was produced for the first time in the 1928 vintage. With the inauguration of the Antinori Chianti Classico cellars, the family wished to reinterpret a Tuscan classic with a Reserve offering that is both delicate and, at the same time, elegant and decisive in flavor.

The nose shows notes of ripe red fruit, wild cherries, and sensations of dried wildflowers along with spicy aromas of cinnamon and a pleasurable balsamic finish. The palate is balanced, savory, and vibrant with a long and persistent aftertaste which brings back the wine's ample spicy aromas and flavors.
