Tignanello Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 1999

Deep Ruby with just a hint of garnet. Wonderfully mature with leather, cherry, black cherry, Clove, violet. Very soft mature tannins, extraordinary length. Just beautiful. From a magnum. β€” 12 days ago

Tua Rita

Tua Rita Redigaffi Toscana IGT 2016

Part of Super Tuscan Horizontal tasting. All 2016 vintage Masseto, Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, Tignanello, Redigafi, and a mystery bottle (Phelps Insignia). I got a lot of plumb and black cherry on the nose with a little tobacco and chocolate. On the plate it was soft, rich and balanced. Finished with some spicy notes. Very enjoyable, but did not stand out relative to others in the tasting, but that’s only because of the competition. β€” 3 months ago

I love this stuff.

Tenuta San Guido

Bolgheri Sassicaia Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2016

Part of Super Tuscan Horizontal tasting. All 2016 vintage Masseto, Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, Tignanello, Redigafi, and a mystery bottle (Phelps Insignia). The color of this wine was red, not purple like I was expecting. It was more Burgundian than Bordeaux-like. A bit on the subtle side. Refined. Still had good cherry and other red fruits, not overly tannic or oaky like I was expecting. This was a good wine, but my least favorite of the night. We had 2 bottles at the tasting and both drank the same. Not the typical Sassicaia profile and definitely not a 100 pt wine in my opinion. It was enough different than other Sassicaia I have had over the years that it left me scratching my head. I plan to source another bottle form a different purveyor to see if this was just an off lot. It was sourced from a reputable provider and has been in my cellar settling for a few months. β€” 3 months ago

Marchesi Antinori

Tenuta Tignanello Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Clear color with slight watery hint on the rim. Slight esrthiness on the nose that blow off after few minutes revealing dark cherry, plum and leather. On the palate the wine is nicely balanced with healthy acidity, clean fruit and medium+ length. Tannins are slightly sandy and already on the background. This is in good place with some air and I think few years from peak. β€” a month ago

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Part of Super Tuscan Horizontal tasting. All 2016 vintage Masseto, Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, Tignanello, Redigafi, and a mystery bottle (Phelps Insignia). Great black fruit and cherry. Coffee, cedar, chocolate, oak. All came together nicely. Super smooth on the palate and a long drawn out finish where the fruit lingered over the top of some earthy graphite notes. Very enjoyable wine. β€” 3 months ago

Great tasting, @Mark Turner. You left no doubt.

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Estate Grown Napa Valley Red Wine 2016

This was the mystery bottle in our Super Tuscan tasting event. It was up against the 2016 Masseto, Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, Tignanello, and Redigaffi. This wine was outstanding. Probably one of the top 5 vintages of Insignia since 1994 in my opinion. Deep purple color, blueberry, blackberry, chocolate, some lead pencil and earth on the nose. Super smooth and elegant on the palate. Really well balanced fruit, tannins, acid. Long elegant finish of dark fruit and earthy with a touch of spice that lingered beautifully. We decanted this and all others about 2.5 hours prior to tasting. Second favorite of the night behind the Masseto which was a force of nature. β€” 3 months ago

Solaia Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Part of Super Tuscan Horizontal tasting. All 2016 vintage Masseto, Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, Tignanello, Redigafi, and a mystery bottle (Phelps Insignia). Blackberry, blueberry, pepper, oak and vanilla, well balanced, good mouth feel, long graceful finish. Hard not to love this vintage of Solaia but it was not a standout among the others. (But some pretty stiff competition) β€” 3 months ago

Masseto

Toscana Merlot 2016

Part of Super Tuscan Horizontal tasting. All 2016 vintage Masseto, Ornellaia, Sassicaia, Solaia, Tignanello, Redigafi, and a mystery bottle (Phelps Insignia). Off the charts good. Immense density of fruit. Big mouthfeel, incredibly well balanced. Cherry, chocolate, blueberry, tobacco, cedar. This was by far the most expensive bottle in the tasting and It was completely worth it. Believe the hype and the ratings. This was phenomenal. Favorite of the night. β€” 3 months ago

Luce della Vite Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

This is hands down, STILL, one of my favourite wines in the world. You just cannot do better than this, in its price category, and it destroys most wines priced more expensive than this too. Like i DARE you to compare a Luce to a Tignanello. What a joke. This is soooooo amazing. β€” a year ago
