The Tinganello vineyards are divided into small plots that include two jewels: the 57 hectares of the Tignanello vineyard and the 20 hectares of the Solaia vineyard. The estate's lands, of Pliocene origin, tend to be thin, with scarce water supply and with a skeleton rich in alberese and...

Tignanello 2012

Tignanello Antinori is one of the most famous Italian wines that have made the history of Italian wine in the last 40 years, in fact the first year of production was in 1970 and since 1971 this wine was called Tignanello. This is nothing more than the name of the land extension of 57 hectares, magnificently exposed to southwest, containing limestone and tuff components. The grapes are manually harvested at different times, depending on the degree of ripening of the different grapes varieties and the different lots, then the grapes are taken to the cellar for the sorting before the vinification. The fermentation takes place in conical tanks at controlled temperature to optimize the part of skin in contact with the must during the fermentation process. The duration and the temperature of this process change every year and for all the varieties, depending on the degree of ripeness and on the characteristics of the year. The wine is separated from the skins and placed in French oak barrels and Hungarian of first and second passage for the aging, for 12 months before the blending and the bottling.

Tignanello 2012

- The 2012 Tignanello is an intense ruby red in colour with purple highlights. The wine is potent and complex on the nose with spicy notes which mingle with aromas of red fruit, smoke, and balsamic sensations; cherries, plums, liquorice, and rosemary are additionally felt. The flavors are mouth- filling and elegant with much volume and an excellent balance in the texture, and the oak is perfectly fused in the spicy and fruity finish and aftertaste.
- 80% Sangiovese, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tignanello 2013
- An intense ruby red in colour with purple highlights, the 2013 Tignanello shows a nose of great red fruit intensity along with highly pleasurable notes of vanilla, chocolate, and leather from the well balanced contribution and fusion of the aromas of the oak.
- 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.

Antinori Tignanello 2016
I bought the bottle at a winery tour.
Intense ruby ​​red shade. Strong aromas of oak and cedar. A little rough, it may need more time in bottle.
