This was a fantastically dark, deep red wine with vanilla and camp fire notes from the prominent oak as well as a touch of earth. Very well balanced, extremely dense mouth feel.

Antinori Tignanello 2006 - PASS - £70 The wine sits intense, deep ruby red in the glass. Cherry, Spice, Herb and hints of oak on the nose combine for an initially stunted but eventual punchy and rich aroma. Great density of flavour and richness on the palate, firm tannic structure and solid acidity; this wine is in balance. Vibrant and fruit forward through the palate with a clean and satisfying finish. Very good wine, but not extra special or "super". 92 Points <A HREF="http://wine90.blogspot.com/2011/05/antinori-tignanello-2006.html">Tignanello 2006</A>

De Marchese is samengesteld van een blend van 90% Sangiovese, bijna 10% Cabernet Sauvignon en het restant wordt opgevuld door Merlot en Syrah. De wijn wordt voor 14 maanden gerijpt in Franse eikenhouten vaten. Daarna moet de wijn nog 12 maanden op fles wachten voordat hij het wijndomein mag verlaten. Maar tot zo ver het technische verhaal. Waarom is deze wijn lekker? Want lekker is hij zeker! De intense geur van deze wijn heeft tonen van bosbessen, braam, vooral donker fruit en munt. Daarnaast heeft de wijn een duidelijke aardse toon, waarneembare houtlagering en mooie kruidigheid. Er is werkelijk van alles waar te nemen. De smaak van de wijn is rijk, zwoel en intens. De kruidigheid komt ook in de mond mooi tot uiting. De balans is super en de afdronk lang en zeer intens! 91/100 Supersnobs.nl

Harmonious bouquet of red berries, sweet spices and violets. Charming to full body in the mouth, ending on a pleasent smoky finish.

You canrsquo;t help but love this wine. The richness, density and intensity are all outstanding and Tignanello is extraordinary in terms of aromas and flavors. The traditional formula for this groundbreaking super Tuscan was Sangiovese with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon. This vintage sees 5% Cabernet Franc for additional texture and longevity.

The 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. Today it is remarkably vibrant and primary. Tignanello is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014andndash;2024.

Antinorirsquo;s 2007 Tignanello is wonderfully ripe and seductive in its dark cherries, flowers, spices, tobacco, sage, cedar, mint and minerals. This is as opulent a Tignanello as I have ever tasted but there is just enough acidity and structure from the Sangiovese to keep things from going over the top. The winersquo;s richness and warmth are such that in a blind tasting I mistook the 2007 Tignanello for a wine from Maremma! The dense, muscular fruit follows through to an impeccable finish with no hard edges and impossibly fine, silky tannins. Simply put, the 2007 is a magnificent Tignanello. The 2007 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3 new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2027.

The 2004 Tignanello (85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) presents a livelier shade of ruby along with fresher aromatics and flavors. Deeply expressive, it reveals black cherries, licorice, tar and sweet toasted oak on a linear, silky-textured frame of great class and elegance, showing outstanding presence on the palate and fine tannins to round out the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2019.

Antinorirsquo;s 2003 Tignanello (85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc) is a terrific effort. Typical Sangiovese notes of red cherries, tobacco and underbrush dominate the flavor profile of this intensely flavored Tignanello that manages to be ripe and open, while retaining notable balance and freshness, although the tannins dry out a bit on the back end. This is a delicious Tignanello to enjoy now and over the next decade. The high altitude of the vineyards was clearly an asset in 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2018.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchesi Antinori positively sparkles on the palate. Dark wild cherries, minerals, graphite, violets and spices are just some of the nuances.
