Description

A deep and complex nose with hints of prunes, cherry jam, spice and tobacco. Full bodied with fine tannins and notes of cocoa, coffee and vanilla on the long and savoury finish.

Producer Note

Domain Antinori was founded in 1895 and it is the birthplace of the Tignanello wine, the first vintage of which came to fruition in 1970. The wine in question found great success abroad just a few years later. This is a fine, Tuscan cuvée made of Sangiovese (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). It is matured in French oak barrels for 14 months. In the glass, this wine has an intense, ruby colour. On the nose, aromas of ripe, red fruits come to the fore. Tignanello is sought primarily for its structure and intense aromatics. Particularly fruity, it is at once powerful, rich and refined, with strong tannins and good persistence on the palate. It is a delightful cuvée as soon as it is bottled, though it still has good aging potential. It should be served at around 16°C. Some food pairing ideas include beef, tournedos Rossini and lamb.

Tasting Note

Tignanello 2016 is in full harmony with the vintage. This wine shows an intense and bright ruby red color. On the nose, notes of ripe red fruits come together with pleasant hints of fresh blackberry and wild berries. At the same time, it shows delicate and perfectly integrated aromas of vanilla and dark chocolate with light spice sensations. On
the palate, the wine is vibrant, with silky and refined tannins. Balanced and intense, it has a long, complex and persistent finish.
