(80% sangiovese, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc): Medium red. Slightly reduced aromas of candied raspberry, ripe dark cherry, coffee and underbrush, accented by peppery herbs and spices. Enters the mouth full and ripe, then turns leaner and tougher, with juicy red berry and spice flavors framed by soft acidity. Clearly a warm-vintage wine, offering only modest complexity and depth for Tignanello, with a slightly overripe red fruit character. A wine I usually quite like, this strikes me as being one of the less memorable Tignanellos made. The long finish hints at subtle fruit and soft acidity.

A powerful red, with plum, blackberry and black cherry flavors that border on jammy, all kept in check by juicy acidity and firm, dense tannins and leather and earth accents. Finishes long, with a mineral flourish.

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.
