Tignanello is the original super-Tuscan, made when Antinori blended Sangiovese & Cabernet Sauvignon from the Tignanello vineyard, creating one of Italy's most iconic wines, effortlessly blending tradition & modernity. The 2016 is another superb effort, made in more structured and intense style than the previous vintage
Tignanello is an icon of Italian wine, and consequently much sought-after. It was the first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, the first contemporary Tuscan red wine blended with untraditional varieties (specifically Cabernet) and one of the first red wines in the Chianti Classico region that didn’t use white grapes. Tignanello is a milestone. It’s produced with a selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

“The 2016 Tignanello is a rock-solid wine and a stunning beauty. The wine offers an impeccable level of precision and laser-focus delivery of fruits, spices, tilled earth, espresso beans and Mediterranean herbs. This vintage follows the classic blending formula of 80% Sangiovese with about 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc. The vines are now 15 to 20 years old. Compared to the 2015 vintage that ultimately appeared more chewy and succulent, this expression from the iconic 2016 vintage is more vibrant, nervous and jazzed. It shows more savory spice, saltiness and minerality, with a beautifully integrated quality of tannins. Some 320,000 bottles were produced. This wine is at the top of the list of some of the best Tignanello ever made, including the vintages 2007, 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2015.” Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
