Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese
The Tignanello by Antinori is a great Tuscan wine, full bodied and intense, with great elegance and consistency, produced from Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, aged for at least 12 months in barrique. Woody and spicy scents accompany a velvety and deep taste, supported by a good freshness. A Supertuscan known all over the world.
James Suckling lost his cool for the 2015 wine awarding 98 points: “Fantastic aromas of dark berries, sandalwood and Spanish cedar that are ever so deep. Full body, an incredible spin of polished tannins and bright acidity. Incredible depth. Like looking over the edge of a skyscraper. Powerful and structured. A great Tignanello. A little more sangiovese than usual. Best since the legendary 1997?” We strongly recommend laying in a case for many more years of pleasure!

The 2015 Tignanello is a wine that opens, like a fully blossomed rose, right in front of you. This vintage is immediately accessible, generous and opulent. The wine will surely flesh out and gain focus with more bottle age, but one of the best qualities of this vintage is just how beautiful the wine tastes straight out of the gate. The fruit is beautifully ripe with fresh blackberry and cherry nuances, spice, leather, sweet tobacco and smoke. Up until this vintage, the various blending components that make up Tignanello were vinifed in separate lots. Starting with 2015, the wine is blended sooner in order to achieve better overall integration. The entire Tignanello estate counts 130 hectares of vines, but the single-vineyard "Tignanello" that makes this wine is 57 hectares. Some 340,000 bottles were produced.
