Wine Spectator: A red with depth and richness, this boasts black cherry, blackberry and tobacco notes. Well-proportioned, yet requires some time to absorb its tannins. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2014 through 2020. 65,087 cases imported.
Robert Parker: The 2008 Villa Antinori comes across as richer, darker and weightier than the 2007 tasted alongside it. Black cherries, smoke, licorice and tar are some of the notes that emerge from this powerful entry-level red. A long, intense finish rounds things out nicely. Villa Antinori is predominantly Sangiovese, with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
