An intense ruby red with purple highlights in color, the aromatic gamut of the 2013 Marchese Antinori ranges from ripe red fruit, with perceptible notes of wild cherries and cherries under spirits to tobacco, leather, and spices. The initial palate sensations are very soft with an excellent balance between tannins and acidity. The finish is richly flavorful and pleasurable and is quite lasting and sustained.
This rich red evokes concentrated black cherry, black currant, spice, graphite and earth aromas and flavors. The oak is deftly integrated, adding a layer of tannins to the dense structure. Best from 2018 through 2028. 4,200 cases imported.
