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. A Supertuscan known all over the world. THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 94 - Drink Date: 2015 - 2025 - "During the recorking ceremony for the 1971 Tignanello, I had the opportunity to taste four editions of the wine spanning the four decades of its production. The 1997 Tignanello was by far the most enjoyable of these wines. It is experiencing a perfect moment in its drinking window. Looking through The Wine Advocate archive, I see the suggestion of brett in a past review. I found absolutely no imperfections in this wine. Instead, the bouquet is generous and opulent with dark berry, spice, licorice and leather. Much of the Tignanello vineyards were replanted in the 1990s so I expect that the fruit came from younger vines. The finish is silky and long in persistency."
