  • A bit tannic upon first opening, but came around within 20 minutes in the glass. This is really, really good.

  • A greater Tig than usual. Taking it's time to open up but then fulfilling nose and dreams.

    Nose: In the first hour it's trying to find the balance between the beautiful dark fruits, red and black cherries, and the more earthy notes, spices, thyme and closing on balsamic notes. The Sangiovese is particularly evident in this vintage.

    Mouth: velvet touch supported by acidity and fine, though present, tannins. Long persistence.

    A special wine with a distinctive personality. The proof that the father of all Super tuscans, in spite of the many bottles produced, is still right up there.

    I will remember this night

  • No detailed notes.....lovely but somewhat shy nose with no decant, reticent but beautifully structured and classy nose of tight blackberries and other Bordeaux influences. Very welcoming and fresh, clean palate in a similar style. Short and tight finish but with well defined and chiseled tannin that is already harmonising.........needs several years for the Sangiovese element to mature and add the lovely Italian brick dust and associated elements that define a mature Tignanello.......but this beat the magnums of 1999 Gruaud Larose and 2001 Ch. Giscours for me this evening. At this stage of maturity it would make a great steak wine.

  • This one is still an infant. A little tannic when first opening, starts to round out after a few hours open. I would leave it in the cellar another few years or plan to aerate for several hours. Once open, typical Tignanello. Really nice sangiovese.
