2011 Antinori Tignanello Reviews

A blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc.

95 Pointz James Suckling

“Ruby, rose, clear color. Fresh grapes, red fruit, marble, and stone on the nose. Paprika, some cinnamon, and fresh cherry on the palate. Light tannins develop structure and complexity.”

95 Pointz Vinous

“Kirsch, rose petal, pomegranate, exotic spices, and mint are woven together in a fabric of notable class in the 2011 Tignanello. An exotic wine that captures the essence of the year, the 2011 is endowed with magnificent complexity, nuance, and class. The silky, polished finish makes the 2011 incredibly appealing today, but the wines from this site have always aged very well. The 2011 is going to need time to shed some of its baby fat, but it will always remain extroverted and racy to the core. I can't wait to see how the 2011 ages.”

93 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“The 2011 Tignanello demonstrates a very ripe and fruit-forward personality with bursting cherry and blackberry folded within sweet spice, moist tobacco, and honey-almond paste. Its texture is heavy and dense with sticky spots of sweetness (the alcohol is recorded at 14.5%). With such a fruit-heavy personality, the wine doesn’t reach the soaring heights or brilliant complexity we see in cooler vintages. It should veer toward a greater sense of focus and tightness with more bottle age.”

93 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“One of the first Super Tuscan wines, this iconic blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc opens with aromas of scorched earth, underbrush, ripe plum, and a whiff of blue iris. The palate offers dried black cherry, prune, mocha, licorice, and clove. Assertive but refined tannins provide the framework.”

93 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Well-defined by lively acidity, with densely woven cherry and plum fruit. The serious tannins are matched by a long, savory finish.”

93 Pointz Decanter

“An exuberant, full-figured, and precocious wine, portraying the generous warmth of the year. Macerated berries, cherry compote, and dried Mediterranean herbs waft from the glass. On the palate ripe fleshy plum and black cherry are girdled with lavish tannins. While this vintage might not have the tension or freshness of previous and subsequent years, its heritage remains evident.”
