Hold 2014-2024-The 2008 Tignanello is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. The 2008 isn’t a huge or obvious Tignanello, rather it is a wine that impresses for its sublime elegance and precision. Understated layers of fruit caress the palate like cashmere in this impeccable, soft wine. There is not a hard edge to be found. Black cherries, tobacco, smoke and licorice are some of the notes that come through on the finish. The flavor profile is decidedly on the dark side, but the wine’s structure is medium in body and intensity. In 2008 the Tignanello has more energy, focus and length than the Solaia. It is a fabulous achievement! The 2008 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3rd new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Score: 94. —Antonio Galloni, August 2011.

Tignanello is the first and most consistent of the great Super Tuscans. Of course Antinori is the world famous producer of Tuscan wines, their history going back literally centuries and their vineyard holding unrivaled.

Sattes Kirschrot; sehr tiefgründig seine Nase; Dörrobst, Edelhölzer, dezente Cassisfrucht und etwas Leder. Im Gaumen gut strukturiert mit samtigen, edlen Tanninen und satter Frucht. Wirkt schön harmonisch und ausladend. Ein echter Charakterwein, geprägt von Eleganz und Stil.

80% sangiovese, 15% cabernet sauvignon, with 5% cabernet franc. Textbook Sangiovese aromas of dried morello cherry, sandalwood, wood smoke, and incense. Kirsch, red plum, black olive, and licorice coat the palate. Hints of new French oak, firm struct... Neil Mechanic.

Antinori's Tignanello is the benchmark for Super-Tuscan Reds, and the 2008 shows all the hallmark characteristics that we expect from these wines. Considering the price point relative to it's brothers... this is a heck of a deal.
