Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
75cl * 14.0% ABV * Tuscany, Italy
Tignanello is produced from 50 hectares of south-facing vineyards at 400m above sea level at Antinori's Tignanello estate. Iconic for being the first Sangiovese to be aged in small oak barrels and the first modern red to include non-traditional varieties (e.g. Cabernet) in the blend, this certainly earns its reputation as the greatest high quality, estate wine made in scale. Tignanello 2017 is an exotic and flamboyant vintage. Remarkable on the nose, you can clearly detect everything from red berries, cherries in liqueur and sweet spice aromas of cloves and liquorice. Its rich and velvety on the plate with a lengthy finish. Drink from 2021-2040+.
