($70) Medium to dark garnet. Fresh, engaging nose suggests mocha, cinnamon, cedar and vanilla. Forceful entry of black cherry leads to juicy, high-toned flavors of dark berry fruits. Smooth, glossy and graceful but ultimately a wine of very good rather than outstanding weight and length. Ripely tannic finish. This property is part of Antinori far-flung wine holdings.

Quite deep crimson. Quite intriguing, high-toned nose. Spreads across the palate. Rather velvety and flattering. At least there's ripeness here! Gentle tannins at the end. Refreshing acidity.

Solid wine, classic brunello. Deep fruit bone with notes of clove and tobacco. Yum!

About This Producer


Although the Antinori family has been making wine for over 600 years and is steeped in tradition, they haven't been afraid to modernize production and to take an innovative approach to blending. One result is the world famous Super Tuscan "Tignanello," a blend of Sangiovese (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), and Cabernet Franc (5%). Marchesi Piero Antinori is the current proprietor of the estate, and was instrumental in creating Tignanello, propelling the popularity of Super Tuscans worldwide.

Antinori produces wines from the Italian regions of Tuscany and Umbria. In addition to Tignanello, some of Antinori's most well-known wines include Solaia, Guado al Tasso, Campo di Sasso, Badia a Passignano, Pian delle Vigne, and Chianti Classico. Antinori's various estates include 1,400 hectares of vineyards planted in Bolgheri, Montalcino, Orvieto, Montepulciano, and Chianti Classico, as well as the emerging locales Sovana and southern Maremma.
