Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 vintage of this wine was ranked #4 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2007

The original Super Tuscan, Tignanello is produced exclusively from a 116-acrevineyard site at Antinori's Tignanello Estate.

Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc.

The 2007 Tignanello is intense ruby redin color with primary aromas of concentrated,ripe fruit and spice, which give way to mildernotes of vanilla and toast. Generous, richlytextured and intense on the palate, this winepossesses a complex structure and long persistentflavors with hints of chocolate, huckleberriesand black plums on the finish.The well-managed tannin blends perfectlywith the oak, for a complex and elegant 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.
