2018 ANTINORI TIGNANELLO TOSCANA

$139.99 $139.99

Antinori’s Tignanello is a milestone wine that revolutionized the entire wine industry as the first Super Tuscan wine created from non-traditional varietals (specifically Cabernet Sauvignon). The Antinori family that produces Tignanello is the tenth oldest family-owned company, with more than 630 years and 26 generations of winemaking experience, dating back to the late 1300s.

Harvested from the Estate’s prized hillside vineyard in Chianti Classico, where soils rich in marine marlstone from the Pliocene period produce intensely flavored berries with unreal flavor purity. The blend centers around Sangiovse powered by Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, aged 14-16 months in French and Hungarian oak barrels, and as Vinous writes, it’s “mesmerizing.”

Description

2018 ANTINORI TIGNANELLO TOSCANA

This wine brought to mind precise imagery of tailcoats, striped dress pants, wingtip collar shirts and other gentlemen’s fashion choices from the Roaring Twenties. Sporting a retro but classic personality, the Marchesi Antinori 2018 Tignanello is quite the dapper and jovial wine that hits the market just as much of the world is emerging from a dark chapter of lockdowns and coronavirus curfews…The 2016 vintage was a benchmark for sure, but I prefer the 2018, thanks to that tinge of nostalgia or emotion that is so deftly rendered in this cool, long growing season.”
98 Points
The 2018 Tignanello is a wine of breathtaking purity. Impossibly silky and persistent, the 2018 is all class, all the way… Winemaking today is more gentle, while new oak is also less intrusive. The result is a Tignanello that bristles with class. The purity of the flavors alone is mesmerizing. Bright red-toned berries, mocha, spice, cedar, new leather and licorice are some of the many notes that linger on a finish framed by silky, perfectly ripe tannins.”
