JS 96 WA 95 WE 95 - Here is a wine with some serious chops. Decanting a must if you wish to drink soon. If not, lay down for at least a couple of years. Smoke, balsamic, licorice and plums mingle balanced with oak. Some serious critical acclaim as well.
Description

Details

JS 96 Vinous 95 WE 95 Pts - According to James Suckling - Aromas of blackcurrants and blueberries with hints of lavender and violets. Full body, chewy and polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A beautifully linear and polished red. Give it time to show it all but this is already a beauty. The depth and class to this are indeed impressive. Better in 2017.

According to Antonio Galloni - The 2012 Tignanello is deep, rich and voluptuous, yet also retains a distinct element of classicism in its focused, mid-weight structure. Dark red cherry, pomegranate, kirsch, spice, tobacco and menthol open up in the glass, but only reluctantly. Firm veins of tannin and pulsating acidity give the wine its sense of energy and verticality. The mid-weight structure should allow the wine to open up in another few years. The 2012 isn't as powerful as the 2010 or exotic as the 2011, but rather is most similar to how the 2005 was in its youth. The 2012 is a Tignanello built on pure finesse and grace. I would not open a bottle before its tenth birthday, if at all possible.

According to Wine Enthusiast - Cellar Selection! - Here’s a structured red with lots of finesse. It opens with alluring aromas of fragrant blue flowers, red berries, baking spices and exotic herbs while the firm, vibrant palate delivers black cherry, crushed raspberry, clove, orange zest, licorice and a sprinkling of white pepper. It’s still young but well balanced, with tightly woven but polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2017–2024.

According to Wine Specator - Rich and finely woven, exhibiting plum, black cherry, spice and tar aromas and flavors. Balanced and vibrant, with a long, energetic finish. Shows more elegance than power. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2025.

According to Wine Advocate - ...The wine is very balanced and nuanced with pretty mineral notes, followed by red cherry flavors and mild spice.

80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc. 14% ABV.
