Marchesi Antinori Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2016

$129.99

98 Points - limited super tuscan               New release of the cult Super Tuscan Tignanello!  One of Italy's 97 Points Robert Parker: "Tasted from barrel, the 2016 Tignanello will be released next year in April. This celebrated red blend is of course mostly Sangiovese with about 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. If 2015 is an ideal vintage for Tuscan blended reds made with the great Bordeaux varieties, the 2016 vintage is better suited to Italian grapes such as Sangiovese. This classic vintage of Tignanello has a leg up, albeit slim, over the previous vintage precisely because the protagonist here is Sangiovese. This wine shows a high caliber of fresh primary fruit that is direct and intense. In the mouth, the wine is focused and sharp. Ultimately, the 2016 Tignanello is slightly more streamlined compared to the more fleshy 2015. This adds to the firm elegance you get here. Drink 2020-2045." 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.

Great vintage for Tignanello that I feel will eventually surpass the legendary 15. Inky showing lots of black, blue fruits & graphite that is balanced with great concentration & length.

OMG... Sorry it's my first time... Visually, this presents as a few years older with a pink to red brick rim. On the nose, the open releases red cherry... With time it mellows to black cherry... If you could elegantly bottle Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia it would start you on the path of creating this wine. The blanket of milk chocolate is like a King's robe. There is a vague hint of baking spices up front. Custardy throughout. Tannins are on on-guard and alert waiting ready, willing, and able to withstand the darkness of the caverns until brighter days. Probably my favorite bottle to date. 96 points

Full bodied intense wine that started out fantastic but petered our too quickly. Still giving it a good score for how it started out with dark cherry , forest floor and well integrated tobacco tannin providing intrigue and depth. After two hours it became very herbal and a bit flat.
