Antinori Marchese Antinori Vinsanto del Chianti Classico is an esteemed Italian dessert wine. Crafted in the heart of Tuscany, it boasts a delightful amber hue with an enticing aroma of dried fruits, honey, and spices. On the palate, it offers a harmonious balance between sweetness and acidity, oozing flavours of caramel, figs, and toasted almonds. It is the result of a meticulous vinification process using white Tuscan grape varieties, predominantly Trebbiano and Malvasia, which have been carefully dried and aged in traditional caratelli barrels. This wine is a beautiful treat to accompany desserts or to sip independently.
The wine is a deep amber in color with golden highlights. On the nose, the sweet notes of dried fruit, hazelnuts, chestnuts and honey are enriched by additional aromas of honey. The palate is full-bodied, honeyed, and invigorated by a vibrant vein of acidity.
