“Antinori’s 2010 Tignanello is stunning, as it has been since I started tasting the component wines in 2011. Firm yet sweet, silky tannins form the backbone for this gorgeous, vivid wine. Dark red cherries, plums, cloves, mint and sage inform a Tignanello that impresses for its delineation, nuance and power. Clean, saline notes support the mineral-drenched finish. The 2010 isn’t huge, but rather is a vertical wine endowed with tremendous energy and vibrancy. I can’t remember a Tignanello with this much crystalline tension and pure energy. Simply put, the 2010 Tignanello is a magnificent, towering wine from Antinori.” Drink 2016-2030

“One of the best Tignanellos ever made. Aromas of currants and blueberries with hints of flowers. Full body with fine tannins and a refined finish. A red that delivers balance and beauty. Rich and gorgeous. Blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. Better in 2015.”
