2008 Antinori Tignanello Reviews


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



94 Pointz Robert Parker’s 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.”

Cellar Selection


“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.”


93 Pointz James Suckling


“Aromas of dried berries and Christmas cake follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and chewy finish. Beautiful finish. Lots of fruit and pretty oak but in a pretty combination. Best after 2013.”


92 Pointz 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.”


Enjoy!
