1981 Villa Antinori is characterised by the wines rich ruby red colour that turns to garnet with time. Aromas of red and black cherry entwined, with notes of wild herbs, mint and a hint of earthy spice. It is supported by a racy acidity, mellow tannins and a long persistent finish.
Chianti, situated in Tuscany in central Italy, is home to probably the best-known and most iconic of all Italian wines. The area’s most highly regarded wines come from the Chianti Classico zone which is the heartland of the Chianti wine region – its traditional and longest-established vinicultural area. This fame is due not just to the high quality of the wines, but also to the classico zone's iconic Tuscan landscape and wine making traditions.
The label riserva is earned only when the wine has been aged for 24 months before commercial release.
