Tignanello Piero Antinori 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Der Tignanello präsentiert sich auf dem Markt in einem kräftigen Rubinrot. Duftige Noten reifer roter Frucht und Gewürze entfalten sich gut ausgewogen an der Nase. Am Gaumen ist er reich, voll und rund, auf angenehme Weise dicht verhüllt er nicht seine unnachahmliche, ihm eigene Eleganz und seine Komplexität. Es ist ein kräftiger aber feiner und sehr angenehm zu trinkender Wein, mit einem guten Abgang und einem dichten Finale von Schokolade und Zitrusfrüchten. Das samtig süßliche Tannin ist ausgeprägt, zusammen mit einem gut ausgewogenen Säuregehalt garantiert es dem Tignanello eine lange Lagerzeit.

The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. As Marchese Piero loves to repeat: “ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation”. As well as the family's traditional heritage of estates in Tuscany and Umbria, investments have been made over time in other areas highly suited to quality wine production, in Italy and abroad, in a quest to promote new terroirs, rich in winegrowing potential. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: “We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character”. Looking to the future, Antinori explains: “There are many books in our library but they are never enough for us. Our mission is not yet complete: we are driven to express the vast potential of our vineyards and reconcile all that is new and undiscovered with Tuscany's traditional, cultural, agricultural, artistic and literary heritage. These things represent the identity of Antinori, and one of our greatest strengths is that we are in Tuscany – our essential ‘Tuscan-ness', if you will”. Read less

De wijn is gemaakt van 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon en het restant bestaat uit Cabernet Franc. Kortom veel Italiaans bloed met enige Franse inmenging. De wijn wordt voor 12 maanden opgevoed in eikenhouten vaten en rust daarna nog voor 12 maanden op de fles. Tignanello was overigens ook de eerste Chianti die een opvoeding op eikenhouten vaten kreeg. Maar wat maakt deze wijn nou zo bijzonder? Allereerst de kleur, deze is intens donkerrood. De kleur is overigens ook een goede indicatie voor de geur, deze is ook vol van intens rijp donker fruit. Onder de vele tonen die omhoog komen herkennen we braam, peper, koffie, cacao, vanille en gebrand suiker. Verder heeft de geur een wat aards karakter. In de mond gaat dit feest nog even door. De smaak is mondvullend en is op zijn zachtst gezegd intens. Ook het zuur in de wijn verdient aandacht. Deze is behoorlijk, maar erg prettig bij een heftige wijn als deze. De taninne’s zijn uiteraard nog aan de harde kant, maar dat is te verwachten van zo’n jonge wijn. De afdronk is lang en indrukwekkend waarbij tonen van koffie en cacao elkaar afwisselen. 93/100 Supersnobs.nl

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. Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "You can’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." And the Wine Advocate scored it 95 points saying "Antinori’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 wine’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: 2012-2027." Limited!
