Tignanello 2015 is the perfect example of a Tuscan wine, characterized by a careful selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

Tignanello 2015, gives the palate a rich and enveloping flavour, complex and long on the finish. The nose can appreciate notes of ripe fruit, licorice and chocolate.

Niccolò Antinori, father of the current Honorary President, Marquis Piero Antinori, signed the label.

How to serve
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 galestro, are a unique feature that, together with the particular position of the vineyards, are located at an average height of 350-400 m asl , have allowed to obtain products with a strong character and accentuated elegance: the grapes enjoy hot days and cool nights during the growing season.More about the Winery
Reviews of Tignanello Antinori Toscana 2015
- 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.
