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.

Antinoriandrsquo;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 wineandrsquo;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: 2012andndash;2027.

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: 2014ndash;2024.

You canandrsquo;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.

Antinori is a world famous producer of Tuscan wines, their history going back literally centuries. The Villa Antinori is the estate where the Chianti Classico wines have been produced for many years. This wine is a natural progression from their Chianti Classico. As the Antinoris recognized how non-native grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah raised the level of quality of their wine they started blending more and more and finally could no longer use the DOC designation and so it became a Super Tuscan IGT. But the quality they’ve reached is exceptional, especially as they’ve experimented more with aging in small oak barrels. This wine from the outstanding 2007 vintage is a blend of 55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Syrah aged for 12 months in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels. Aged in the bottle for another 8 months before release this Tuscan beauty has reached a stage where the ripe fruit, the savory oak and the Tuscan terroir are intermingled in a stunning array.

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.

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>
