Elegant nose of cassis and dark cherry complemented by notes of lilacs, graphite, pepper notes and peashoots. Medium bodied and balanced palate with dry grainy tannins. Some tart berries, cherries and cassis. Smoky graphite finish of mid-length (+). A very fine and elegant bottle of Tignanello!
After starting out decidedly funky, it turned Bdx-like on the nose (tobacco, dill). Fruit is recessive, but some nice earthy complexity on the palate. A bit thin on the finish. Clearly close to expiry, but an interesting experience.
