Just entering it's plateau of maturity this Tignanello exhibits a classic whiff of barnyard on the nose and offers up a luxurious mouthfeel notes of dark earth adding an edge to the deep berry flavors. The texture is rich and plump with fruit still concealing it's great structure. A wine to decant enjoy today or cellar for an additional 5 years to allow it to reach it's expressive heights.

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)
