Antinori's Tignanello is the benchmark for Super-Tuscan Reds, and the 2008 shows all the hallmark characteristics that we expect from these wines. Considering the price point relative to it's brothers... this is a heck of a deal.

WA 94 Pts.  -  WE 94 Pts.  -   WS 92 Pts - Antinori's Tignanello is the benchmark for Super-Tuscan Reds, and the 2008 shows all the hallmark characteristics that we expect from these wines.  Considering the price point relative to it's brothers... this is a heck of a deal.

 

According to Wine Advocate - The 2008 Tignanello is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. The 2008 isn’t a huge or obvious Tignanello, rather it is a wine that impresses for its sublime elegance and precision. Understated layers of fruit caress the palate like cashmere in this impeccable, soft wine. There is not a hard edge to be found. Black cherries, tobacco, smoke and licorice are some of the notes that come through on the finish. The flavor profile is decidedly on the dark side, but the wine’s structure is medium in body and intensity. In 2008 the Tignanello has more energy, focus and length than the Solaia. It is a fabulous achievement! The 2008 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3rd new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

 

According to the Wine Enthusiast:  This landmark Italian wine continues to show the best of Tuscany, as it faithfully does year after year. The quality is obvious, thanks to rich notes of chocolate, black cherry and spice that are wrapped tight within a lush, soft and texture. The close is velvety and very long.
 

 

According to Wine Spectator - A sleek, perfumed red, showing floral, black currant and cherry flavors, with a hint of vanilla. The oak is well-integrated, with a fresh finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024. Rated 90+
