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.
85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc
"Thanks to its excellent quality and universal appeal, you can count on Tignanello to make an excellent impression with any elegant meal…The wine delivers an interesting power play that pits cherry fruit against vibrant spice. It is tight and firm in the mouth with a slightly sweet or soft note on the close."
"Intense aromas of ripe blackberry and flowers, with rosemary and coffee hints. Full-bodied, with chewy, polished tannins. Excellent fruit concentration and a flavorful aftertaste. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2012. 29,165 cases made."
"The 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. This is a remarkably vibrant and primary Tignanello. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024."
