The nose was like a big basket of ripe berries with crème fraiche, tobacco box and spice. However, on the palate, it fell short of expectations with black currant and bell pepper on a light-to-medium frame with a fresh, yet long, finish. At a quarter of the price, I may have scored low nineties.

Tangy, citrusy body, with a touch of anise and a nice soft finish. Dark black/purple color. Would go well with tomato dishes since it would match the fruitiness and acidity.

Definitely needs food, but not bad after dinner by itself. Pretty decent, and good for the price. Went very well with spaghetti and a red meat sauce. Smooth and dry. Decent, and not bad, aside from that, not a lot to distinguish it.

A very good value. Slightly fruity with soft tannins.

Ruby red color with purple hues. Intense fresh fruit aromas with pleasant floral hints. Well-structured, generous, soft and harmonious. Sweet tannin and lingering fruit in the finish.

A nice simple merlot semi-smooth has a bit of an acidic after taste.

Medium to dark garnet. Brooding nose offers tobacco and licorice scents. Good inner-mouth density, with flavors of dark berries, vanilla and near eastern spices, and an unexpected hint of tropical fruit. Finishes with firm, dusty tannins and some unresolved oak. A notable effort, amply concentrated and richly textured, but not as impressive as some earlier vintages of this wine.

There are 30,000 cases of this well-known Tuscan proprietary red made from a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc. The 1998 offers a classic bouquet of berry fruit, new saddle leather, underbrush, earth, and toast from its new barrique aging. Medium to full-bodied, with more tannin than the plusher, more opulent 1997, good delineation, and a firm, classic style, it requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should drink well for 15-16.

Balanced and delicious, with plenty of blackberry and currant aromas and flavors and just a touch of leafiness. medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, fruity aftertaste. Best after 1999.

Deep ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, cassis and cedar. Thick and concentrated, with compelling sweetness buffered by strong extract. Fat and mouthfilling. Notes of nutty oak and vanilla. Finishes with even, tongue-dusting tannins and outstanding grip and persistence. A strong vintage for this wine.

A fabulous Tuscan red, young and racy. Deep dark ruby in color, with focused aromas of blackberries, wood and very ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Best after 2003.


External Review

A velvety and caressing red, with tobacco, berry and cherry character. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, delicious aftertaste. Best after 2002.

The deep ruby/purple-colored 1999 Tignanello exhibits rare elegance married to considerable flavor intensity as well as power. Normally a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc aged in French oak for 12 months, the 1999 offers up aromas of new saddle leather intertwined with black cherries, currants, creosote, vanilla, and spice box. Rich and medium-bodied, with adequate acidity as well as sweet but noticeable tannin, it is the third consecutive exceptional vintage from this reference winery for modern, aggressively-styled Tuscan reds. Anticipated maturity: now-2012.

Winemaker's Notes:

This Sangiovese/Merlot blend is a supple, plush wine.

<p>A yellow-green wine with a highly aromatic floral and fruity nose. On the plate, a very grapey flavor shines through with hints of dried flowers. Medium-bodied, balanced, refreshing.</p>
