Estate Notes

Antinori's 2007 Tignanello vintage comes from an excellent Tuscan vintage across all appellations despite an irregular summer growing season, with the late ripening Cabernet Sauvignon used in Super Tuscans faring particularly well.

The hugely respected Antinori family has a distinguished history of winemaking and banking in Tuscany dating back to the 13th Century – that's 26 generations!

Antinori's Tignanello estate is situated in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, and was the original Super Tuscan. The estate has a excellent reputation and is responsible for producing modern styled reds.

Reviews

"Antinori’s 2007 Tignanello is wonderfully ripe and seductive in its dark cherries, flowers, spices, tobacco, sage, cedar, mint and minerals. This is as opulent a Tignanello as I have ever tasted but there is just enough acidity and structure from the Sangiovese to keep things from going over the top. The wine’s richness and warmth are such that in a blind tasting I mistook the 2007 Tignanello for a wine from Maremma! The dense, muscular fruit follows through to an impeccable finish with no hard edges and impossibly fine, silky tannins. Simply put, the 2007 is a magnificent Tignanello. The 2007 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3 new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques."
