Description Sub Region Producer Notes
2016 saw an even, dry, yet healthy growing year at the Antinori family’s Tignanello estate, and the ’16 Tignanello reflects its climate in its intensity, balance, and precision. Juicy red and blue fruits dance on a foundation of dusty earth, new leather, cigar wrapper, pressed violets, and dustings of spice and wood in this sneakily powerful Tig. Chewy tannins cling to the cheeks, while kinetic acidity propels this wine to a lingering, delineated, and muscular finish. 2016 gifted the Antinori team with ideal conditions for Sangiovese, and this Tignanello showcases the grape’s lush yet nervy profile. An ideal blend of mostly Sangiovese blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and some Cabernet Franc, Tignanello changed the Super-Tuscan game, offering an indigenous spin on Bordeaux-style Super Tuscans. Tignanello derives from a single 140-acre southwestern-facing vineyard of limestone-rich soils; Antinori separately ferments each plot in temperature-controlled stainless steel, ages each plot’s wine in barrels, some new and some used, for about a year, and only then makes the final blend.
