Wine Description

(1993 Vintage) 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)

    (2006 Vintage) Antinorirsquo;s 2007 Tignanello is wonderfully ripe and seductive in its dark cherries, flowers, spices, tobacco, sage, cedar, mint and minerals. This is as opulent a Tignanello as I have ever tasted but there is just enough acidity and structure from the Sangiovese to keep things from going over the top. The winersquo;s richness and warmth are such that in a blind tasting I mistook the 2007 Tignanello for a wine from Maremma! The dense, muscular fruit follows through to an impeccable finish with no hard edges and impossibly fine, silky tannins. Simply put, the 2007 is a magnificent Tignanello. The 2007 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3 new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2027.
