2009 Antinori Tignanello Reviews


This wine is a blend of 75% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Cellar Selection


“The bottle that changed Italian wine forever, Tignanello is as modern and innovative as its first vintage many decades ago. Soft blackberry and cherry is backed by balanced spice, leather, and toasted espresso. Those rich oak tones do a wonderful job of holding up the wine's natural richness and velvety smoothness.”


94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“The 2009 Tignanello is quite beautiful. Cedar, graphite, sweet herbs, licorice, and leather add complexity to a core of highly expressive red fruits. The 2009 impresses for its energy, drive, and focus. Today, the 2009 comes across as slightly understated relative to many recent vintages, especially 2007 and 2008. There is a silkiness and polish that is reminiscent of the 2004. Tignanello is 75% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc from vineyards in San Casciano Val di Pesa, one of the most evocative hillsides in all of Italy.”

“Dried fruits and flowers on the nose. More roses than anything else. Full body, with light toffee, coffee, and ginseng character. Light prunes too. Really enjoyable.”


93 Pointz Wine Spectator


“Very elegant, the 2009 represents the soul of Tignanello, revealing red fruit and savory notes. Remains focused, harmonious, and long.”

International Wine Cellar


“Ripe aromas of sweet red cherries macerated in alcohol, cedar, cinnamon, and pepper. Suave and seamless, with soft, almost-overripe flavors of redcurrant jam, red plum syrup, stewed red plum, and tobacco leaf. A very distinctive and much creamier than usual Tignanello, finishing with supple tannins and excellent length. Obviously the product of a warmer year, and though this outstanding Tignanello is a touch less refined than some recent standout vintages, it's hard to argue with its sweet, soft style and early drinking appeal.”

92 Pointz Decanter


“Still very deep in colour, this has a super-ripe cherry nose with no jamminess and some cedar tones. The fruit is seductive, with plum and cedar notes, ample acidity and tension, and a long, chocolatey finish. It may not have the flair of the 2010, but it's approachable while not lacking in structure.”


Enjoy!
