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-acre
vineyard site at Antinori's Tignanello Estate.
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc.
The 2007 Tignanello is intense ruby red
in color with primary aromas of concentrated,
ripe fruit and spice, which give way to milder
notes of vanilla and toast. Generous, richly
textured and intense on the palate, this wine
possesses a complex structure and long persistent
flavors with hints of chocolate, huckleberries
and black plums on the finish.
The well-managed tannin blends perfectly
with the oak, for a complex and elegant wine.
