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.

  • But is it a good wine, I wonder?  That is, in the paraphrased words of Samuel Johnson, would it be wine worth drinking, but not worth going to drink? Read More

  • Actually it ages pretty well. It's not a bad wine. Maybe not worth all the hype it once got, but still nice enough. Read More

Definitely good wine, and curious to try an older vintage.TN: Plum, fig, coffee, vanilla, and black cherries on the nose.Shows good acidity on entry, followed by fresh red and black fruit flavors, coating the mouth well with extract.

  • I looked at the wine list and I can't really tell what things cost because ... ... From the Italians, the Tignanello and Ceparello look like they are pretty close to US retail.  (I think the Tignanello especially is overpriced in the US, but at that price in a restaurant, I'd happily order it.)  If you haven't had it, Chateau Musar from Leban...
