2017 Marchesi Antinori Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Gran Selezione, DOCG, Italy (750ml)
A linear, nervy red with black-cherry, milk-chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a racy finish. Drink or hold. - James Suckling, 95 pts
The Marchesi Antinori 2017 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Badia a Passignano reveals the soft and generous side of this vintage with ripe aromas of blackberry, plum, spice, sweet tobacco and campfire ash. The wine is giving and rich to all the senses and it ends with softly integrated tannins and a fleshy, fruit-forward style. Serve it with a platter of real Tuscan rosemary schiacciata with slices of culatello. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 pts
Aromas of camphor, cassis, scorched earth and violet form the nose of this medium-bodied red. Made with Sangiovese, the smooth palate offers dried Marasca cherry, coconut, vanilla and thyme alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2025. - Wine Enthusiast, 92 pts
