You will like to know that...

The Tenuta Tignanello Antinori family has been making wine for over six centuries. Their Tenuta Tignanello estate lies in the centre of the Chianti Classico zone, between the rivers Greve and Pesa. Tenuta Tignanello Antinori's Tignanello Toscana 2016 is produced using only grapes sourced from the Tignanello vineyard. This wine is only bottled in favourable vintages and so is not available every year.

The Tignanello Toscana 2016 began with fermentation in conical tanks where the must and the skins were macerated together to achieve the fresh aroma, colour extraction, and the desired level of tannins. The wine was transferred to small oak barrels for malolactic fermentation before being left to age for a minimum of two years in French and Hungarian oak barrels, both new and second-use. Then a final blend was completed before bottling, where it remained in bottle for twelve months before being released to the public.

A blend of Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Tignanello was one of the first red wines in the region to not use white grapes. This harmonious red wine is intense and balanced. It is full of flavour to match up with its bright ruby colouring. Try it with beef, lamb, or duck for a perfect marriage to such a savoury dish.

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...

Antinori Tignanello 2016

We had it with a deer stew. The best company for Antinori Tignanello is a good conversation.
Ripe cherry colour, medium opacity. Balsamic aromas. It leaves a slightly sweet after-taste.

4/5

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.

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.
