Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva Lq Antinori 2001
"The 2001 Tignanello is an object lesson in how to make Cabernet work with<br/>Sangiovese, the two varieties balancing and enhancing one another in admirable<br/>symbiosis..A blackish ruby, its perfectly focused plum and cassis fruit, given<br/>an additional complexity by notes of sweet herbs and saddle leather, is fully<br/>and completely shaped in flavors of impeccable volume, roundness, and depth,<br/>caressing and powerful and with an additional power on the close which promises<br/>another 15 years of gratifying drinking."<br/><br/>(Wine Advocate - Apr-2006)

Red fruit, raspberry, tar, fine well integrated tannins. Lighter than I expected; preferred the Montevetrano. Not overwhelming for the price, but very enjoyable. Drinking now.
[PWJGT] much fuller and richer than my previous experience. Dark fruit smoke, structure. ***
Shocked by the overall Bretty-ness to this wine. Wasn't expecting that at all. However, after much swirling, aerating and sniffing, I was able to find a core of dark red and black fruit. With a positive midpalate of dried herbs and a leathery tannin finish with bitter cherry components.
Deep, almost black intense Ruby red color. The nose is a real treat, full and powerful aromas of blackcurrent, plums and cassis with the cabernet adding the slightest hint of herbs as the wine sits in the glass. The taste is classic sangiovese with the cab coming through on the finish. Long, long silky finish, the tannins are balanced. A very well constructed wine. (SN - 11/07)
This is a bold wine with deep rich flavors and silky tannins. Allowed to decant for more than 30 minutes the depth of flavor increases significantly and provides a true window on the concept behind super-tuscan.

A blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot. 13.5%. An expressive and impounding nose of cassis, olives, sweet oak. Full-bodied with superb ripe tannins, yet showing a shallow class with luscious cedar and leather (after 2 hours) with a good after-taste. Best appreciated from 2008 to 2016. A friend of mine TN as follow: A great nose of focused blackcurrant fruit and cassis, blended with sweet herbs. Superlative mouthfeel with wonderful roundness, depth and power. Excellent structure, impeccably balanced. Long. Additional notes of leather as the wine opens in the glass. Lovely stuff.

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. 27 500 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator.
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.

One of Italy's most recognized labels, this blockbuster 85-10-5% Sangiovese-Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc blend evolves slowly and seductively under your nose to reveal blackberry, black cherry, graphite notes, well-integrated vanilla. The mouthf... Wine Enthusiast. A Proprietary Blend wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2001 Antinori, P Tignanello IGT 750ml
Intensity from an optimal vintage. Aromas of incense, cloves and blackberries with fresh, youthful plum jam aromas and flavors. Generous texture, velvety tannins and and a long persistent finish of cocoa dusted blackberries. plum jam in the finish. Still in its young stage, decant for consumption now or cellar for 10+ years.
In 2001 Tignanello captures a super-concentrated and dense expression of fruit that has been achieved with some loss of aromatic complexity and overall finesse. This is a super-ripe style with tons of dark fruit smoke and toasted oak in a heavily extracted style that veers on excess. There is remarkable power here but not the level of balance that is typical of the very finest vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
