2006 Antinori Tignanello Reviews


This wine is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc.



94 Pointz Wine Enthusiast


“Thanks to its excellent quality and universal appeal, you can count on Tignanello to make an excellent impression with any elegant meal. Based on Sangiovese, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine delivers an interesting power play that pits cherry fruit against vibrant spice. It is tight and firm in the mouth with a slightly sweet or soft note on the close.”


92 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth, and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. Today it is remarkably vibrant and primary. Tignanello is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.”



92 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Still rigid and dense, this is packed with plum, cherry, leather, and licorice flavors. Structured and on the austere side in the end, bolstered by firm tannins.Non-blind Tignanello vertical (October 2019). Best from 2022 through 2037. 29,165 cases made.”

“Pioneered by Giacomo Tachis in the late 1970s, this wine burst onto the international fine wine scene with dazzling effect. A single-vineyard wine from the Chianti Classico zone, it was among the first to include Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc in the blend, and barriques for ageing. As a consequence, it had to be labelled as Vino da Tavola It isn’t made in every vintage, so when it’s good, it’s very good. This 2006, from Spurrier's own cellar, is just such a wine, with unyielding colour right to the rim. The sweet nose has a singed tobacco note. On the palate it's full of sweet, juicy cassis and plum with a layer of cedar and earthy sous-bois. Dry, rich, and elegantly full, the 2006 has grip, texture, and volume in spades, followed by a gorgeously long finish.”


Enjoy!
