Antinori Tignanello 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Grappa Tignanello is obtained from the distillation of the marc from the Sangiovese and Cabernet grapes growing in the Tignanello vineyard which is situated on the Antinori estate 'Tignanello' in the heart of Chianti Classico. As soon as the marc has fermented, it is drawn off from the tanks and pressed, and immediately taken to the distillery. This procedure guarantees that distillation is carried out using the best quality marc possible - rich is alcohol and more importantly with good aromatic characteristics.

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

I was very delighted by the Deep Color and rich nose on first spill. ** The wine seemed to be enjoyed from the bottle but was asked to be decanted -. I am sure the wine became richer by the moment. Deep and ready to drink now. Enjoy. Mille Gratis Antinori

Marked by new oak this red reveals cherry currant vanilla smoke and chocolate flavors backed by a powerful rearguard of tannins. Stays fresh through the lingering finish. Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2032.

Antinori s 2010 Tignanello is stunning as it has been since I started tasting the component wines in 2011. Firm yet sweet silky tannins form the backbone for this gorgeous vivid wine. Dark red cherries plums cloves mint and sage inform a Tignanello that impresses for its delineation nuance and power. Clean saline notes support the mineral-drenched finish. The 2010 isn t huge but rather is a vertical wine endowed with tremendous energy and vibrancy. I can t remember a Tignanello with thi

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.

Der Cabernet Sauvignon verleiht der Cuvée Madame Rosmarie Mathier rouge ihren fruchtigen Geschmack. Der Humagne Rouge mit seinen herben, rustikalen Tanninen gibt ihm seine Rasse. Der Syrah ist verantwortlich für die feine Pfeffernote. Der Pinot Noir verbindet diese drei Weine. Mit seiner Eleganz rundet dieser Cuvée auf diskrete, subtile Art ab.
