Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Even with more than thirty years of age, the 1982 Tignanello is drinking beautifully; an incredible nose of leather and dried fruit that’s laden with fresh earthy tones leads to a delicate palate that coats your mouth with fine tannins and then finishes cleanly and beautifully. Upon release, this plump wine offered a concentrated palate that laid its succulent fruit on a bed of forest floor, tea leaves, chocolate and spice; with maturity, this wine has developed its tertiary notes to show its full glory. Tignanello didn't become the blend we know and love it to be--80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc--until 1982, more than a decade after its debut and one year after winemaker extraordinaire Renzo Cotarella came to work at Antinori.
