    Winemaker's Notes:

    #4 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2007!

    One of the first "Super Tuscans," Tignanello is meant to last. Although its delicious structure and flavors can be enjoyed while young too. The nose shows layers of dark fruits and spice, with subtle notes of toasted oak. On the palate the wine is rich but well structured with fine tannins. Layers of fruit give the wine complexity, which continues through the long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Offers aromas of blackberry, with hints of raisin and lots of spices. Full and velvety, with wonderful concentration and a long, rich finish. Very stylish and exciting. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

    Ah, Tignanello, the father of all super Tuscans. A tried and true favorite, it is a Sangiovese-based wine cut with a small component of Cabernet for rich aromas of red fruit and spice. It is elegant, harmonious and long-lasting on the finish.

    The estate's 2004 Tignanello is a modern-day classic. Suggestions of macerated cherries, menthol, sweet spices, licorice and French oak meld seamlessly into a perfumed silky-textured core of ripe fruit. The tannins remain incredibly fine throughout. The wine's vibrant color and fresh flavors suggest it will age gracefully over the next decade. This is a remarkably refined Tignanello.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    Medium dark ruby. Captivating nose redolent of pretty red and black fruits, black pepper and graphite, with complicating suggestions of tobacco and prune. Very fresh and buoyant on entry, with pure flavors of ripe fruit and black pepper, then long and extremely fresh on the back end. Here one can find evidence of all three varieties. Silky tannins, noteworthy definition and impeccable balance make this one of the best young Tignanellos in recent memory.

    International Wine Cellar

    This vintage of Tignanello is cool and savory, with unfolding aromas of dried herbs and dark cherries. A blend of sangiovese (85 percent), cabernet sauvignon (10) and cabernet franc (5) grown in the limestone and marl soils at the Tignanello estate, this is seamless and sleek, its dark, rich flavors held firm by oak. Layered and intensely structured, this is an aristocratic wine to cellar for 10 to 15 years.
