2018 Antinori Tignanello Tuscany, Italy - 750 ML Bottle
Tasting Notes: Tignanello 2018 is a deeply intense ruby red color. On the nose, it’s remarkably complex with notes of ripe red fruit, black cherries, sour cherries that merge with sweet hints of vanilla, mint and delicate sensations of white pepper and myrtle. Its palate is rich and well-balanced: supple velvety tannins are sustained by exceptional freshness that give the wine length, elegance and persistence of flavors.

"A milestone in the contemporary Italian winery. The first Sangiovese aged in barrique, blended with untraditional varieties, the proof that great Bordelais could be created in Italy as well. A selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, shows an intense and velvety nose recalling blackberry and blueberry, scents of fresh pepper leaf, then licorice. Rich and fulfilling mouthfeel with iodized tannins and balsamic touches. Persistent aftertaste." – Luca Gardini, Gardini Notes (March 2021)
