Wine EnthusiastYou'll find alluring aromas of fragrant blue flower, wild berry, menthol, dried herb and a whiff of exotic spice on this radiant red. The juicy palate shows surprising richness for the vintage, doling out ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, vanilla and cinnamon alongside polished, fine-grained tannins that leave a firm finish.
Wine SpectatorFresh and vibrant, this red displays cherry, strawberry, tobacco, spice and mineral flavors. The firm structure lends plenty of support and the finish evokes tobacco, earth and underbrush notes. Best from 2018 through 2023. 7,125 cases
Wine AdvocateHere is one of Marchesi Antinori's battleship red wines. The 2013 Villa Antinori is among the estate's most accessible wines with some 200,000 cases (of 12 bottles each) produced in this vintage. The wine is a blend of Sangiovese fruit sourced from various points in Tuscany (Chianti Classico, Maremma and Bolgheri) with other red grapes. Indeed, this wine serves as testament to the various levels of dry extract and ripeness that can be achieved with Sangiovese depending on where it is planted. What this wine offers most of all is impressive consistency throughout each new vintage released.
