Antinori Tignanello 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Tignanello is quite beautiful. Cedar, graphite, sweet herbs, licorice and leather add complexity to a core of highly expressive red fruits. The 2009 impresses for its energy, drive and focus. Today, the 2009 comes across as slightly understated relative to many recent vintages, especially 2007 and 2008. There is a silkiness and polish that is reminiscent of the 2004. Tignanello is 75% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Robert Parker's Wine AdvocateThese bottles are in perfect condition but the labels have some light wine stains. Extremely limited availability. Only two left.

Tignanello:
  Tignanello is the “Super Tuscan” label produced by celebrated Italian wine producer Antinori. The Antinori family has produced wine in Tuscany for well over 600 years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385.

  Tignanello is the “Super Tuscan” label produced by celebrated Italian wine producer Antinori. The Antinori family has produced wine in Tuscany for well over 600 years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. The winery has managed to stay in the family over the centuries, now under the direction of Marchese Piero Antinori, with help from his daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia.    Tignanello has been produced since the early 1970s in the vineyard of the same name, and is credited with being among the very first Super Tuscans. It is a blend of primarily Sangiovese with smaller percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This makes it closer to a traditional Tuscan wine, the inverse of most Super Tuscans which balance more heavily on the Bordeaux grapes. It was one of the first wines in the region to be aged in small oak barrels to impart richer flavors.  Read less

Enttäuschend. Zwar schön ausgewogen und schmackhaft, preislich jedoch nicht interessant. Hätte wirklich mehr erwartet!

Sattes Rubinrot. In der Nase eine dichte Aromadecke, Zedernholz, warme Gewürze und Kräuter gepaart mit Komponenten von Süssholz und schwarzer Frucht. Im Gaumen ein kraftvoller, energetischer Auftakt, aber trotzdem geschmeidig. Saftige Säure, strukturierende Tannine von Top-Qualität. Zu den Aromen der Nase gesinnt sich eine kompakte Frucht und ein Touch Leder. Der Abgang ist ausgewogen und von langer, aromatischer Nachhaltigkeit.

According to Antonio Galloni - Longtime winemaker Renzo Cotarella has done a fabulous job with the flagships Tignanello and Solaia in 2009. In my blind tastings the pedigree of those two wines in particular came through with notable eloquence.

Intensives Rubinrot mit purpurroten Reflexen; in der Nase breitgefächerte Aromatik von Sauerkirschen, Brombeeren, Leder, etwas Unterholz und Rauch, begleitet von eleganten Barriquenoten. Im Gaumen gehaltvoll, mit geschliffenen Tanninen und frischer Säure. Lang im Abgang mit herrlicher Komplexität.
