Details

Impeccably ripe Sangiovese and it was near absolute perfection at the Antinori. With over 85% Sangiovese in the blend (along with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) the crown-jewel of Tuscan-varietals takes center stage. Heaps of black fruits, cherry and cassis on the palate combined with an intoxicating nose of spice, chocolate and licorice.

Winemakers Notes: The 2016 Tignanello is an intense ruby red in color. On the nose, notes of ripered fruit harmoniously blend together with blackberries and wild berries; delicate and perfectly balanced with hints of vanilla, chocolate and spices. The palate is rich and vibrant with soft, elegant tannins that give the wine great complexity, finesse and balance, and a long and persistent finish. Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker - “This celebrated red blend is of course mostly Sangiovese with about 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. If 2015 is an ideal vintage for Tuscan blended reds made with the great Bordeaux varieties, the 2016 vintage is better suited to Italian grapes such as Sangiovese. This classic vintage of Tignanello has a leg up, albeit slim, over the previous vintage precisely because the protagonist here is Sangiovese. This wine shows a high caliber of fresh primary fruit that is direct and intense. In the mouth, the wine is focused and sharp. Ultimately, the 2016 Tignanello is slightly more streamlined compared to the more fleshy 2015. This adds to the firm elegance you get here.”


Wine Spectator - “A big, lush style, this red delivers pure aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry, violet, flint, tobacco and baking spices. This is supple, yet backed by a firm, dense matrix of tannins, so all the components are there, but this needs time to integrate. Lovely sweet, ripe finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2040.”
