An intense ruby red in color, the aromas of the wine are characterized by a powerful varietal expressiveness, with ample notes of red fruit, raspberries, and liquorice. On the palate, the wine, still very young, immediately shows firm tannins with much polish and finesse as well, along with a balancing, tonic acidity and savory mineral notes which add length and persistence to the finish and aftertaste.
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
"One of the best Tignanellos ever made. Aromas of currants and blueberries with hints of flowers. Full body, with fine tannins and a refined finish. A red that delivers balance and beauty. Rich and gorgeous. Best Tignanello in years."
"Humming with energy and life from the very moment you put your nose in the glass, Marchesi Antinori's 2010 Tignanello shows magnificent aromatic layering and an enormous capacity to peel back and reveal itself in beautiful slow motion. This is an articulate wine with a long story to tell about the quality of its profound 2010 fruit. This Tignanello has the elegance of 2004 and the structure of 2007. A brief note on the structure: The mouthfeel here is not broad and big. Instead, it shows a sharp and elegantly streamlined feel with impressive persistency. Compared to 2009, the Sangiovese component is slightly higher with 80% of the noble Tuscan variety followed by 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2035"
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Marked by new oak, this red reveals cherry, currant, vanilla, smoke and chocolate flavors, backed by a powerful rear-guard of tannins. Stays fresh through the lingering finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. "
