Tignanello Antinori Toscana 2006 (Sangiovese)

Very intense ruby red color. Nicely

Reviews about Tignanello Antinori Toscana 2013
- The spicy and balsamic sensations which give additional complexity are also quite important. The wine is ample and enveloping on the palate with supple tannins and a savoury freshness which fully respects the character and personality of the Sangiovese grape.
- The balance between acidity and tannins is excellent, and the finish and aftertaste are of a lovely length and persistence.
