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.

94 Points - Wine Spectator Very intense ruby red colour. Nicely expressed varietal aromas with hints of black berry fruit. The palate is weighty, dense and vibrant with complex structure thanks to support of the acidity. Long and lingering with hints of chocolate, coffee and marmalade in the aftertaste. The beautifully handled tannin from the wine and wood blend making Tignanello a very complex, stylish and sophisticated wine.

Attractive plum, cherry and berry aromas, with a hit of toasted oak. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a lovely, sweet fruit, berry aftertaste. Delicious. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2005.

Loads of blackberry, coffee and olive aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, subtle yet rich finish. A fine Tignanello that shows reserve and class. Best after 2007.

Antinorirsquo;s signature blend of sangiovese with cabernet sauvignon is clearly touched by the vintage character of 2003, both superripe and a little green. The earthiness ties it to Tuscany, the smoky red tomato flavors suited to osso buco or other braised meats.

Thanks to its excellent quality and universal appeal, you can count on Tignanello to make an excellent impression with any elegant meal. Based on Sangiovese, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine delivers and interesting power play that pits cherry fruit against vibrant spice. It is tight and firm in the mouth with a slightly sweet or soft note on the close.

Tignanello is the first and most consistent of the great Super Tuscans. Of course Antinori is the world famous producer of Tuscan wines, their history going back literally centuries and their vineyard holding unrivaled. The 2006 vintage was a superb and Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this Tignanello 94 points saying "Thanks to its excellent quality and universal appeal, you can count on Tignanello to make an excellent impression with any elegant meal. Based on Sangiovese, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine delivers an interesting power play that pits cherry fruit against vibrant spice. It is tight and firm in the mouth with a slightly sweet or soft note on the close." Extremely Limited

Sattes Kirschrot, sehr tiefgründig seine Nase, Dörrobst, Edelhölzer, dezente Cassisfrucht. Im Gaumen filigran strukturiert mit samtigen, edlen Tanninen. Wirkt schön harmonisch und unaufdringlich. Ein echter Charakterwein, geprägt von Eleganz und Stil.

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.
