(From 2010 Vintage) Very intense ruby red color. Nicely expressed varietal aromas with hints of black berry fruit. The palate is weighty, dense and vibrant with complex structure thanks to support of the acidity. Long and lingering with hints of chocolate, coffee and marmalade in the aftertaste. The beautifully handled tannin from the wine and wood blend making Tignanello a very complex, stylish and sophisticated wine.
Tasted by David J Cooper on 3/12/2012 & rated 93 points: Medium red. There was a slight bit of sweetness here that made me think Napa. Mineral and red cherry fruit are there with a lot of earthiness. A very nice slighlty sweet red fruit and earth mouth and a nice balanced finish. An elegant wine in a very good place. (291 views)
