This 375 was is a perfect spot, showing about as well as a Tig can show in an off year. Oak totally faded, sweet and sour red cherry Sangiovese nicely resolved, velvety smooth, beautifully long. Drink up.

I will preface this note by disclosing that I am generally not a fan of Super Tuscans. I like old school Toscana. But I will try to be objective here. The nose is very evocative of a classified growth Bordeaux: lots of cedary, gravelly scents and some dark berry fruit underneath. In the mouth it is concentrated and soft, but develops weight in the back half of the palate. Some peppery heat from alcohol at the end too. I know it’s predominantly Sangiovese, but it really does taste very Left Bank, except for a little note redder fruit at the end.

Opened my last ‘05 about 6 months ago, had an opportunity to get another, couldn’t resist. Deep Ruby with concentrated ripe black fruits and floral spice aromas. On the palate rich blackberry, plum and tart raspberry, complex, good acidity, balance and depth with ultra-smooth tannins. The finish ended with an earthy and oaky character, very smooth, lingering. Wine is at its peak, find a bottle, get the corkscrew! You will not be disappointed. Enjoy!

Fruit had started to fad, but what a delicious wine. Tannins we’re fully integrated and a lovely mouthfeel.

On the nose; saddle-wood, dark currants/cassis, lavender, violets, candied style; dark cherries, blackberries, plums, strawberries & blue fruit mix. Light sweet tarry notes, leather, tobacco, moist, dark turned earth & limestone minerals. dark cherries, blackberries, plums, strawberries & blue fruit mix.

The body is full and rich. The palate is a beautiful, classic expression of IGT wines from Tuscany. The length, structure, balance & tension are exceptional for such a young wine. Tannins soften, round and a bit chewy. It’s ruby & ripe; dark cherries, blackberries, plums, strawberries & blue fruit mix. Sweet tarry notes, black licorice, touch herbaceous, light smoke, savory meats, nice spice with a slight sting on the long set, saddle-wood, cigar, loamy soils, limestone minerals, crushed rocks, dry stems & leather. The round acidity is beautiful. The long elegant finish is excellent for this wine this young.

Photos of; the Antinori Cottage, Tingnanello Vineyard, the Antinori Family and the Tignanello barrel room.

Drink in the peak window of 2024-2035.

That’s your big boy, dark fruits, pencil lead, dried herbs, earth, high acid. Decanted for an hour.
