Marchesi Antinori Tignanello

Wine Description

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso. 91 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 1993 Tignanello reveals gorgeous notes of cedar, tobacco and sweet herbs that waft from the glass, along with slight notes of oxidation that are also present. This is a medium-bodied Tignanello and at this point the wine’s structural components appear to be dominating over the fading fruit in the wine’s balance. Despite its slender personality, this is a delicate, elegant wine, but it is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2012. (Jan 2009)

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 m...
