Tasting Notes

Representing one of Italy’s most celebrated wines, Tignanello is produced exclusively from the vineyard of the same name in Tuscany by the iconic Antinori estate. First produced in 1971, Tignanello was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels, the first modern Tuscan red wine to use such non-traditional varieties as Cabernet in the blend, and among the first red wines from the Chianti Classico area to be produced without white grapes. Today, Tignanello is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 5 % Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon that is aged in barriques for about 12 months and for a further 12 months in bottle before being released. Using only the best fruit and subject to a rigorous selection process, this wine has a rare capacity to age and improve for decades. The 1988 Tignanello is a classic release taken from a great vintage and is drinking superbly well. Ruby-garnet in colour, a developing immersing nose displays savoury, complex notes of hawthorn, leather, clove, licorice, dried herbs and pencil shavings. Full-bodied and beautifully textured on the palate, silky layers of basil, plum, cherry, almond and coffee notes are set against fresh acidity and soft tannins. Long and pronounced on the finish, this sublime release will age well over the next five years and beyond, but is delightful to enjoy now.
