2010 Antinori Tignanello Reviews


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


96 Pointz James Suckling


“One of the best Tignanellos ever made. Aromas of currants and blueberries with hints of flowers. Full body with fine tannins and a refined finish. A red that delivers balance and beauty. Rich and gorgeous.”


96 Pointz Vinous


“2010 Antinori Tignanello is stunning, as it has been since I started tasting the component wines in 2011. Firm yet sweet, silky tannins form the backbone for this gorgeous, vivid wine. Dark red cherries, plums, cloves, mint, and sage inform a Tignanello that impresses for its delineation, nuance, and power. Clean, saline notes support the mineral-drenched finish. The 2010 isn't huge, but rather is a vertical wine endowed with tremendous energy and vibrancy. I can't remember a Tignanello with this much crystalline tension and pure energy. Simply put, the 2010 Tignanello is a magnificent, towering wine from Antinori.”

Cellar Selection


“Blackberry, plum, red currant, and cedar aromas take center stage in this fantastic vintage of one of Italy’s most iconic wines. The structured, poised palate delivers a great depth of flavors that include succulent black cherry, cracked black pepper, and mocha that are energized by a flinty mineral note. Smooth and balanced with polished tannins and fresh acidity, this is already delicious but hold for complexity.”


94 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“Humming with energy and life from the very moment you put your nose in the glass, Marchesi Antinori’s 2010 Tignanello shows magnificent aromatic layering and an enormous capacity to peel back and reveal itself in beautiful slow motion. This is an articulate wine with a long story to tell about the quality of its profound 2010 fruit. This Tignanello has the elegance of 2004 and the structure of 2007. A brief note on the structure: The mouthfeel here is not broad and big. Instead, it shows a sharp and elegantly streamlined feel with impressive persistency. Compared to 2009, the Sangiovese component is slightly higher with 80% of the noble Tuscan variety followed by 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.”



94 Pointz Wine Spectator


“The 2010 is intense, fresh, and taut, with an underlying mineral element buoying the cherry and currant flavors. Shows fine balance and length.”

96 Pointz Decanter


“This demonstrates amazing aromatic complexity. Balsamic herbs like rosemary, sage, and thyme meet red forest berries, sous-bois, creosote, and warm stones. There is a sinewy precision to the tannin and lively succulent acidity, both of which are seamlessly integrated with the elegantly restrained fruit. Still tightly wound, it could do with a bit more time to expand on the palate and will offer plenty of drinking pleasure for years to come.”


17.5/20 Pointz Jancis Robinson,

Master of Wine


“Tasted alongside Solaia 2010, this had a very similarly ripe, luscious texture with well-worked tannins but with more acidity and vitality. The tang and savour of Sangiovese is wonderfully complementary to the super-smooth physical impact of this wine. You could actually drink it with pleasure already in 2014.”



Enjoy!
