Description

"The 2017 Tignanello is flat out stunning. Dark, dense and resonant, the 2017 is a wonderfully complete wine that will provide readers with decades of pure drinking pleasure. The 2017 is especially dark and brooding, and yet the tannins are incredibly polished to the point of being perceptible. In the glass, the 2017 is complete and regal, perhaps because of the super-classic blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in the wine's extraordinary balance and total sense of finesse. I don't think there is another wine anywhere in the world made entirely from estate fruit that can match Tignanello for quality, consistency and value within its peer group of top-flight reds."

Smells

Ripe red fruit immediately greet the nose underpinned by liquorice, cloves, chocolate and even hints of mint, all giving beautiful complexity.

Tastes

The palate is rich yet vibrant with tannins that coat the palate with a sensual, velvety texture. There is a gorgeous sympathy of fruit, plums, dark cherry with sweet tobacco and a striking herbal vein. This wine sings, striking a chord with all the senses, leaving you wanting more. Cellar for 10-15 years or more. Serve with your favourite Italian red meat dish.
