International Wine Cellar Author: Daniel Thomases Issue: Issue 91

Very full ruby-garnet, dark and deep. Ample in aroma, with sweet cassis fruit, light accents of sage and rosemary, chocolate and roasted coffee from the oak, and some alcoholic warmth. Dense, round and velvety on the palate, with expanding flavors. Finishes with important tannic strength and impressive weight and force. The fusion of the sangiovese and cabernet components of this wine is more accomplished than in past vintages.

Dark crimson almost right out to rim. Well mannered blend on the nose. Attractive, well mannered, more international style than either of the wines above ? it would make a good introduction to Sangiovese. Slight bitterness on the finish. Not especially long or intense but very well made.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 127

The 1997 Tignanello is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc, aged in small French oak casks for 12 months, and bottled with no filtration. It possesses a dense, ruby/purple color, and an expansive nose of black currants, cherry compote, vanillin, and earth. Sweet, jammy, and opulently-textured, this expansive, concentrated, low acid wine is flashy and gorgeously-proportioned. It should drink well for 10-15 years, although who can ignore it now?

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Dark ruby-garnet, with aromas of meat, berry and freshly picked roses. Full-bodied, with very soft tannins and beautiful currant and blackberry character. Long, silky and caressing. Sangiovese and Cabernet

Cab nose -black fruit. Angular on the palate-Sangiovese is prominent on the finish. Deep ruby color. No signs of age.

Nearing its peak, tannins almost fully absorbed by the fruit; currants and violets, with cabernet dominating; finish is smooth and long
