Antinori Tignanello 2016
The 2016 Tignanello is an intense ruby red in color. On the nose, notes of ripered fruit harmoniously blend together with blackberries and wild berries; delicate and perfectly balanced with hints of vanilla, chocolate and spices. The palate is rich and vibrant with soft, elegant tannins that give the wine great complexity, finesse and balance, and a long and persistent finish.
Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc

This fragrant, savory red carries aromas of underbrush, plum, blue flower, cocoa and camphor on the nose. The polished palate boasts juicy Marasca cherry, ripe blackberry, licorice, tobacco and an appealing hint of game. Silky tannins and bright acidity keep it balanced and elegant. Drink 2021–2036.
