Villa Antinori 1996 Chianti Classico Riserva 150cl
Chianti Classico, from the heartland of Tuscany, is one of Italy's iconic wine regions - the original Chianti - and, since 1924, identified by the stamp of a black rooster on gold.
The wine is Sangiovese dominant, with up to 25% of the blend permitted to be constituted from a small handful of other approved grape varieties. As a "Riserva" classification, the wine has been matured in oak for a minimum period of 21 months prior to bottling.
Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation.
