Antinori Marchese Riserva 2006
92 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): ...positively sparkles on the palate. Dark wild cherries, minerals, graphite, violets and spices are just some of the nuances that flow effortlessly... The French oak contributes an additional measure of volume and ampleness I doubt the wine truly needs given the superlative quality of the fruit in 2006. A rich fabric of minerals reappears to frame the intense, deeply satisfying finish... The 2006 is one of the finest vintages I can remember tasting. (Oct 2010)

This was a fantastically dark, deep red wine with vanilla and camp fire notes from the prominent oak as well as a touch of earth. Very well balanced, extremely dense mouth feel.
Nose of oakey black fruits and berry. Lovely. Well balanced and integrated flavors.
Antinori Tignanello 2006 - PASS - £70 The wine sits intense, deep ruby red in the glass. Cherry, Spice, Herb and hints of oak on the nose combine for an initially stunted but eventual punchy and rich aroma. Great density of flavour and richness on the palate, firm tannic structure and solid acidity; this wine is in balance. Vibrant and fruit forward through the palate with a clean and satisfying finish. Very good wine, but not extra special or "super". 92 Points <A HREF="http://wine90.blogspot.com/2011/05/antinori-tignanello-2006.html">Tignanello 2006</A>
De Marchese is samengesteld van een blend van 90% Sangiovese, bijna 10% Cabernet Sauvignon en het restant wordt opgevuld door Merlot en Syrah. De wijn wordt voor 14 maanden gerijpt in Franse eikenhouten vaten. Daarna moet de wijn nog 12 maanden op fles wachten voordat hij het wijndomein mag verlaten. Maar tot zo ver het technische verhaal. Waarom is deze wijn lekker? Want lekker is hij zeker! De intense geur van deze wijn heeft tonen van bosbessen, braam, vooral donker fruit en munt. Daarnaast heeft de wijn een duidelijke aardse toon, waarneembare houtlagering en mooie kruidigheid. Er is werkelijk van alles waar te nemen. De smaak van de wijn is rijk, zwoel en intens. De kruidigheid komt ook in de mond mooi tot uiting. De balans is super en de afdronk lang en zeer intens! 91/100 Supersnobs.nl
Harmonious bouquet of red berries, sweet spices and violets. Charming to full body in the mouth, ending on a pleasent smoky finish.
Very good wine. Not very strong. Good for pre and during meals.
External Reviews for Antinori Marchese Riserva
Balanced and delicious, with plenty of blackberry and currant aromas and flavors and just a touch of leafiness. medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, fruity aftertaste. Best after 1999.
Medium to dark garnet. Brooding nose offers tobacco and licorice scents. Good inner-mouth density, with flavors of dark berries, vanilla and near eastern spices, and an unexpected hint of tropical fruit. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and some unresolved oak. A notable effort, amply concentrated and richly textured, but not as impressive as some earlier vintages of this wine.
Deep ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, cassis and cedar. Thick and concentrated, with compelling sweetness buffered by strong extract. Fat and mouthfilling. Notes of nutty oak and vanilla. Finishes with even, tongue-dusting tannins and outstanding grip and persistence. A strong vintage for this wine.
Antinorirsquo;s 2007 Tignanello is wonderfully ripe and seductive in its dark cherries, flowers, spices, tobacco, sage, cedar, mint and minerals. This is as opulent a Tignanello as I have ever tasted but there is just enough acidity and structure from the Sangiovese to keep things from going over the top. The winersquo;s richness and warmth are such that in a blind tasting I mistook the 2007 Tignanello for a wine from Maremma! The dense, muscular fruit follows through to an impeccable finish with no hard edges and impossibly fine, silky tannins. Simply put, the 2007 is a magnificent Tignanello. The 2007 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3 new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2027.
94 Points - Wine SpectatorVery intense ruby red colour. Nicely expressed varietal aromas with hints of black berry fruit. The palate is weighty, dense and vibrant with complex structure thanks to su
A big, rich and spicy Tignanello, with hints of smoky wood. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Chewy. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2007.
There are 30,000 cases of this well-known Tuscan proprietary red made from a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The 1998 offers a classic bouquet of berry fruit, new saddle leather, underbrush, earth, and toast from its new barrique aging. Medium to full-bodied, with more tannin than the plusher, more opulent 1997, good delineation, and a firm, classic style, it requires 2ndash;3 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 15ndash;16.
