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

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.

De wijn is gemaakt van 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon en het restant bestaat uit Cabernet Franc. Kortom veel Italiaans bloed met enige Franse inmenging. De wijn wordt voor 12 maanden opgevoed in eikenhouten vaten en rust daarna nog voor 12 maanden op de fles. Tignanello was overigens ook de eerste Chianti die een opvoeding op eikenhouten vaten kreeg. Maar wat maakt deze wijn nou zo bijzonder? Allereerst de kleur, deze is intens donkerrood. De kleur is overigens ook een goede indicatie voor de geur, deze is ook vol van intens rijp donker fruit. Onder de vele tonen die omhoog komen herkennen we braam, peper, koffie, cacao, vanille en gebrand suiker. Verder heeft de geur een wat aards karakter. In de mond gaat dit feest nog even door. De smaak is mondvullend en is op zijn zachtst gezegd intens. Ook het zuur in de wijn verdient aandacht. Deze is behoorlijk, maar erg prettig bij een heftige wijn als deze. De taninne’s zijn uiteraard nog aan de harde kant, maar dat is te verwachten van zo’n jonge wijn. De afdronk is lang en indrukwekkend waarbij tonen van koffie en cacao elkaar afwisselen. 93/100 Supersnobs.nl

Humming with energy and life from the very moment you put your nose in the glass, Marchesi Antinori’s 2010 Tignanello shows magnificent aromatic layering and an enormous capacity to peel back and reveal itself in beautiful slow motion. This is an articulate wine with a long story to tell about the quality of its profound 2010 fruit. This Tignanello has the elegance of 2004 and the structure of 2007. A brief note on the structure: The mouthfeel here is not broad and big. Instead, it shows a sharp and elegantly streamlined feel with impressive persistency. Compared to 2009, the Sangiovese component is slightly higher with 80% of the noble Tuscan variety followed by 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2035.

According to Antonio Galloni - I can't remember a Tignanello with this much crystalline tension and pure energy. Simply put, the 2010 Tignanello is a magnificent, towering wine from Antinori.

A very intense ruby red in color with purple highlights, the wine is immediately and suavely convincing in its aromas and harmonious in its expression of the characteristics of Chianti Classico as a zone. The nose is redolent of licorice, violets, and cherries under spirits together with notes of vanilla, chocolate, and sweet toasty oak, all of excellent intensity and sweet elegance. Fresh and savory flavors on the persistent finish add length and finesse.

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.

85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. On release, Tignanello 2006 has a very intense ruby red color and balanced ripe red fruit and spicy aromas on the nose. It is has a full, rich and round rich palate, dense without hiding its great elegance and complexity. A powerful wine, yet fine and pleasant to drink, with good length and an aftertaste packed with chocolate and citrus fruits. The tannins are pronounced, but smooth and silky, which, together with balanced acidity, assures Tignanello good ageing potential.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The deep ruby/purple-colored 1999 Tignanello exhibits rare elegance married to<br/>considerable flavor intensity as well as power. Normally a blend of 80%<br/>Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in French oak<br/>for 12 months, the 1999 offers up aromas of new saddle leather intertwined with<br/>black cherries, currants, creosote, vanilla, and spice box. Rich and<br/>medium-bodied, with adequate acidity as well as sweet but noticeable tannin, it<br/>is the third consecutive exceptional vintage from this reference winery for<br/>modern, aggressively-styled Tuscan reds." <br/><br/>(Robert Paker - Wine Advocate- Dec 02)
