Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Piero Antinori's opulent, intense Tignanello embodies the very best of the Super-Tuscan movement: traditional methods of winemaking combined with a desire to innovate when innovation creates a better wine. Deriving from a single vineyard in the Chianti Classico zone, the ’97 Tignanello is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Cabernet Franc; aged for fourteen months in oak casks, Antinori bottles the wine without filtration and ages it for another year before release. Now with fourteen years of maturity, the round, juicy fruit of the ’97 Tignanello is showing tertiary notes, adding a sexy, visceral punch to the wine’s notes of violets, earth, leather and anise. For optimal drinking, we suggest decanting and aeration before enjoying this mature Super Tuscan.
