Vinous 88 points - The 2012 Villa Antinori is laced with sweet raspberry, floral and spice flavors, all in a mid-weight, refreshing style with considerable near-term appeal. Quite frankly, this is a stunning level of quality for a wine from estate vineyards with a production that averages 3 million bottles year, something that is unheard of in Italy. The Villa Antinori draws fruit across Antinori properties in Chianti Classico, Montepulciano, Montalcino and Maremma. (Sep 2015)
Intense ruby red in color. The aromas are also intense and complex with notes of spices, mint, and chocolate, which are particularly felt along with light aromas of rip cherries. On the palate the wine, savory and long, is full-bodied and round with supple and velvety tannins.
