  • Mini Verticals - Tasted Blind: Licorice, chocolate, earthy, coffee notes. Plenty of age on it but has developed well. Resolved tannins on the palate but still has life and good structure. Drink now.

  • Bottiglia da 0,75 in perfette condizioni.vino sbalorditivo da subito.al naso ancora presente la frutta,in bocca esplosivo e molto presente.equilibrato e lungo.un campione,un fuoriclasse.dopo ore di decantazione bicchiere non perde smalto ,mantiene intatti profumi e sapore.senza dubbio con ulteriore potenzialità di invecchiamento(non di miglioramento).insomma chi ha la fortuna di avere qualche bottiglia lo può bere oggi ma anche tra qualche anno senza fretta.uno dei migliori tignanello che ho assaggiato assieme all'88.96+ il nostro punteggio

  • World Wine Symposium 2013 - Kevin and Kelly's excellent adventure; 11/6/2013-11/14/2013 (Villa D’este, Lake Como): Came directly from the winery. Fully matured, dry dark fruits, strong tobacco note, licorice and earth. Warm and round palate impression, very ripe fruit expression and fully integrated tannins. A bit more advanced than the 82 Bordeaux counterparts, perhaps the similar stage as the 82 La lagune in development. A very food friendly at this stage.

  • Oh this is very good indeed. I bought this magnum from Farr recently, and brought this to dinner with some friends at the China Club. Popped and poured. Terrific floral and currant bouquet, deliciously fruity on the palate, the wine put on weight and gained layers of earthy mineral complexity during the course of the evening. The vibrancy of the fruit helps this wine come across as younger than expected, but actually I think it is squarely in its drinking window, and the tannins are certainly soft and well rounded. Having said that, there's quite a few more years left in this -- I didn't pay a ridiculous price for this, and will certainly buy any further bottles I come across in the market, as should you!

  • Ripe cherry nose with violets, liquorice, meat, dried herbs, iron and chocolaty wood.
    Medium bodied, intense and refreshingly structured - cooling but meaty - palate with slight tannic grip. Blue flowers, dark tobacco, tar and liquorice. Warmer towards the long finish.
    Good stuff. Pretty ripe style but giving some beautiful cooling and slightly brooding nuances.
