Why We're Buying

Antinori Tignanello Toscana is a wine ahead of its time. It was the first barrel-aged sangiovese. It was the first modern red wine blend with cabernet. It even veered away from Chianti’s traditional white grapes. As a result, Tignanello Toscana launched the Super Tuscan movement en route to universal critical acclaim.

Ruby, rose, clear color. Fresh grapes, red fruit, marble and stone on the nose. Paprika, some cinnamon and fresh cherry on the palate. Light tannins develop structure and complexity. Sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. Better in 2016.
