Tignanello is the “Super Tuscan” label produced by celebrated Italian wine producer Antinori. The Antinori family has produced wine in Tuscany for well over 600 years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. The winery has managed to stay in the family over the centuries, now under the direction of Marchese Piero Antinori, with help from his daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia. 
 
Tignanello has been produced since the early 1970s in the vineyard of the same name, and is credited with being among the very first Super Tuscans. It is a blend of primarily Sangiovese with smaller percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This makes it closer to a traditional Tuscan wine, the inverse of most Super Tuscans which balance more heavily on the Bordeaux grapes. It was one of the first wines in the region to be aged in small oak barrels to impart richer flavors.

Tignanello on Snooth

  • They announced that WW left a few days ago. He's supposed to do social media and create a community. I'm not saying that there's a comparison between Snooth and Wine.com, just that his role is supposed to be kind of like Greg's. But he's a different breed of cat. I don't know him but I know Greg and Greg has opinions on wine but he'll also recog... Read More

  • "WW" left? Whenever I saw his name on a shelf talker I immediately moved my gaze to another bottle.  Talk about a conflict of interest!  Let's see, Wine.com also sells wine... Snooth lets users click over to retailers.  I think the model is different, and I think GdP keeps a community engaged--us, but more so the people who want to read but not ... Read More

  • I'm not sure Tignanello or even Solaia have ever  been great wines (in Angelo Gaja's words a great wine is one that startles). While in the  70'/80's they were somewhat unique because of their blends they've never  in my mind been great. In my house I'd much rather drink the  old Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Reserva than these supposed Super-... Read More

  • Haha..I'll give em a rest!  The worst part is they can't come to Victoria.  So they are going to my in-laws in Seattle and I'll get them next time we're there or they come here (which is often enough).  I just have to give them careful instructions on where to put them!!! Read More

  • Fox, you're right about the price if we're talking retail.  I have ... of spending $100 on a new Tignanello, I could buy something like those I mentioned.  Unfortunately, there's a few people sniping the Monte Bello, regardless of vintage!  If items get bid up anywhere near what I would pay here, then it's no use...but I like the possibility of...

  • For $15 nothing wrong with that as a daily drinker, Fox. Should buy more...Tignanello was great wine when I started drinking it back in the late '80s. Still a reliable standby when I was visiting Tuscany a bit into the late '90s (and buying wine to drink from earlier vintages), and was part of several wine debauches at restaurants there on more ...

  • Okay, I asked what the value play was in the post above.  Well, WS just gave Antinori's mass market "Super Tuscan" (David Parker of Benchmark used the term "Medium Tuscan" at dinner a while back--I really like that) 92 points in its 2010 instantiation. And it's only $15 at Wine.Com! Can also be had at BevMo (see, GregT, they do sell some real wi... Read More

  • Antinori Tignanello 2010

    Snoothrank:

    I was very delighted by the Deep Color and rich nose on first spill. ** The wine seemed to be enjoyed from the bottle but was asked to be decanted-. I am sure the wine became richer by the moment. Deep and ready to drink now. Enjoy. Mille Gratis Antinori Read More

    Wine review by William Djubin


  • Only if you like those wines.  No knocks on Tig--it's a really good wine if you like that style of wine--somewhat rootless but spot on and more than competent.  (I would probably analogize to Mondavi Reserve Cab--mostly ToKalon fruit, really consistent, and about %100.) You can get it for under a C note if you shop around.  Monte Bello and anyth... Read More
