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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Holy crap!  I checked this out here and the 2010 is $100.  Geeze...I like Italian, but I can now say I can think of other stuff I'd buy first.  I've been perusing WineBid.com and looking for some biggies, like Ridge Monte Bello, and G. Conterno Cascina Francia Barolo 2004. Read More
