  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($95; 14% alcoh ol) Bright, medium ruby-red. Musky black fruits, cedar, graphite and minerals on the cabernet-dominated nose. Broad and lush in the mouth, conveying a full-bodied, weighty impression but also plenty of energy to the flavors of blackcurrant, tobacco and cedar. Finishes very long and smooth, with extremely fine-grained tannins. Though this is a very refined and highly successful version of Tignanello, I found it to be a bit more international and soft in style than the 2006 and 2004 versions, which I like better.

    Displays sweet plum and berry aromas and flavors, with hints of toasty oak and cappuccino. Full-bodied, yet reserved and fine. Turns chewy and juicy.

    The 2007 Tignanello is ripe with promise for the future. The wine has just started its evolutionary track with aromas of blackcurrant, dried blackberry and cherry. This was a warm but balanced vintage that shows beautiful results today and exceeds my already high expectations. There is a steady thickness and determination to the wine that carries it forward. This was the last vintage made in the Tignanello winery before the structure saw a major overhaul. Given the staying power of this historic wine, I feel that this vintage will hold easily for another 20 years or more.

    A little tight when we poured the first glass. As this wine opened up, it improved, but never became more than just a good wine. I expected more for the price point.

    A solid drinking wine. Great body, balance and finish. Still young and will be a power house in 3-4 years.

    Decant 2 hours. Dark ruby color. Classic IGT nose of dusty dark berry fruit and earthy hay. Palate is full of dark fruit, tar, anise, cassis, licorice, with hints of perfumed floral nuances. Smooth, medium long, with drinkable tannic structure and somewhat juicy acidity. Very mature, masculine, and a classic tignanello from a fantastic vintage. I have to imagine, this traditional producer is attempting to modernize the production, and make their wines as drinkable young as possible.

    Has softened up quite a bit. Very fine, not overly complex but worked well paired with the meat based pasta dish we had.

    I should have waited. Completely closed on the nose even after decanting for two hours. More showed up on the second day but it is still not ready. Tannins were well integrate but the dark cherry, smoke, leather characteristics didn't show their full potential.

    Took to Chef Vola's in Atlantic City, wonderful Italian restaurant, with a group and several other wines. This one was tops to me. Big, bold & brambly dark fruit cabernet. The tannins are present but well integrated. Overall a powerful but pleasing and balanced wine.

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.

The rolling hills of Tuscany are home to ancient vines that grew wild long before modern times. Sangiovese is the variety of the region's best-known wines, Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti. In recent years, “Super Tuscans"—blends including non-native Bordeaux varieties—have gained in popularity and acclaim. The region's Mediterranean climate, with its warmer average temperatures, provides ideal conditions for the development of rich, structured, and age-worthy wines.
