Marchesi Antinori Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2012

$99

New release of the cult Super Tuscan Tognanello!  One of Italy's most sought-after wines.The 2012 Tignanello is an intense ruby red in color with purple highlights. The wine is ripe on the nose with notes of dark fruit and with much underlying freshness on the aromatic finish; plum fruit dominates the aromatic gamut along with cherries, and the aromas evolve with vigor and balance towards sensations of mint and liquorice. On the palate, though still young, the wine is ready and inviting, rich and harmonious; excellent the balance of the flavors thanks to the tonic acidity and the solidity and suppleness of the tannins. The finish and aftertaste are rich and savory and are characterized by a sweet persistence and length. Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010.

A successful court day in Fresno with my associate Tyler and we found a Fleming’s and hit up some wine after. This was decadently delicious. Much more approachable than I expected.

#2012 #Tignanello This #Androgynous #Beauty ... While still a baby, is a delight to try now... ❤️ Easy on the palate...But this embryo needs some time to turn from from a #Caterpillar into a #Butterfly ... Silky & elegant... I can't wait to see how she comes into herself in a decade or so... #WeAreYoung by #JanelleMonae is the #3 top song in 2012 & I think it suits this #SuperTuscan perfectly... What were you up to in 2012?? #ThinkWhileYouDrink

Young, but showing some incredible pedigree. Persistent and lively.

Deep ruby color with thick legs. Muted primary aromas of red currant, black cherry and strawberry jam. More pronounced secondary aromas of black tea, lavender, cocoa powder, wet stone, damp earth, cigar smoke, and a rich ribbon of vanilla. Medium + tannins, high acidity, with additional flavors of mocha and chocolate covered cherries. 15+ second finish, and still obviously very tight and worthy of many more years in the bottle. Amazing with bistecca alla fiorentina!
