Marchesi Antinori Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2012

The 2012 Tignanello is deep, rich and voluptuous, yet also retains a distinct element of classicism in its focused, mid-weight structure. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, kirsch, spice, tobacco and menthol open up in the glass...Firm veins of tannin and pulsating acidity give the wine its sense of energy and verticality...The 2012 is a Tignanello built on pure finesse and grace. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

#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!

Such a reliable wine - sour cherries, cedar tobacco box with slight ash. Simply fantastic!

This young super Toscana has a great potential, I would normally wait a few years, but here in Florence most wines on the menu are young or just outrageously priced ;-). This blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% CS, 5% CF, has an enchanting nose, vanilla, sweet cedar, black cherries, licorice, rip figs and dark chocolate, full body, fruity yet well structure with solid tannins and delicious acidity. Long finish. My score 90, approachable now but will improve over time, drink from 2016-2026.
