Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Very intense ruby red color. Nicely expressed varietal aromas with hints of ripe red fruit and spice. The palate is weighty, dense and elegant with complex structure thanks to the acidity. Long and lingering with hints of chocolate, coffee and marmalade on the finish. The beautifully handled tannins from the wine and wood aging makes Tignanello a very complex, stylish and sophisticated wine.

About Antinori:

The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.
