Intense ruby red colour with light garnet hues. Complex and nicely harmonious aromas of tobacco, curry powder and blackberry and blackcurrant jam. A mouthfilling deliquescent sensation on the silky palate enhances the sweetness making the 2003 vintage a very stylish version of the Tignanello. A light hint of sweet, nicely rounded tannins in the finish make the wine more persistent.
Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc
"Antinori's 2003 Tignanello (85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) is a terrific effort.
