Tignanello Antinori Toscana 2013
Tenuta Tignanello Antinori (Tuscany)
Tignanello is produced exclusively from the vineyard of the same name, a parcel of some 140 acres (57 hectares) with limestone-rich soils and a southwestern exposure at 1150-1325 feet (350-400 meters) above sea level at the Tignanello estate. It was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels, the first modern red wine to use such non-traditional varieties as Cabernet in the blend, and among the first red wines from the Chianti Classico area to be produced without white grapes.

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...

The Tignanello is a wine more closely related to experimental path in viticulture and oenology from Marchesi Antinori started in the late '70s. Tenuta Tignanello, home to the renowned vineyards that animate the eponymous wine, is located between the valleys of Greve and Pesa, in the heart of the Chianti Classico exactly between the small villages of Montefiridolfi and Santa Maria in Macerata, 30 km south of Florence. Here, at the top of a hill has a beautiful panoramic position and a generous vegetation, stands the sixteenth-century villa built on the foundations of an estate dating back to 1346, surrounded by nearly 127 hectares of vineyards, of which 47 are dedicated to the production of Tignanello . The idea at the base of programmatic Tignanello moves from a search for the obtaining of grapes with a higher concentration and soft tannins, thanks to interventions on the density of planting or through the practice of pruning and selection of Sangiovese. In the oenological field, the guidelines are directed towards the production of a wine with a well-defined personality, through fermentation in wooden vats, pressings and fluffy movements and little traumatic for grapes, with malolactic fermentations carried out in barrique. Thus was born the Tignanello Antinori, featuring many innovative firsts than the local winemaking tradition: first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, the first red wine blended with non-local varieties like Cabernet, and among the first red wines in Chianti not include blended with white grapes, Tignanello is a spokesman for the Tuscany wine modernity, produced only in the best years and able to base its reputation on an absolute longevity for large tasting of tomorrow

- 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.

Tignanello Antinori Marchese Antinori 2011
nice and cozy color. Aromas of berries. I noticed some roughness in the mouth.
Best if you take it with a good ham.
