Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon

75cl * 14.0% ABV * Tuscany, Italy

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 Tignanello its reputation as the greatest high quality estate wine made in scale.

Originally called "Chianti Classico Riserva Vigneto Tignanello" (a Chianti Classico Riserva from the Tignanello vineyard), this was produced for the first time from a single vineyard parcel in 1970. In 1971 it became a Tuscan red table wine rather than a Chianti Classico, and was called Tignanello. Only bottled in the best vintages, ever since 1982 the blend has been the one currently used. The 2020 vintage is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc.

Intensely ruby red, Tignanello 2020 has exceptional aromatic complexity. Notes of ripe cherries, strawberries and blackberries are accompanied by delicate floral hints of violets, mallow blossoms and roses. Its bouquet is completed by notes of roasted coffee and cocoa powder. The wine closes with spicy notes of pepper and liquorice that merge with pleasant sensations of aromatic herbs for a fresh, lengthy finish.
