Tignanello, Antinori 2016
Still the world’s favourite SuperTuscan, the 2016 Tignanello is a rock-solid wine and a stunning beauty. The wine offers an impeccable level of precision and laser-focus delivery of fruits, spices, tilled earth, espresso beans and Mediterranean herbs. This vintage follows the classic blending formula of 80% Sangiovese with about 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc. This is a spectacular vintage in Tuscany and the wine shows more savory spice, saltiness and minerality, with a beautifully integrated quality of tannins. The 2016 is at the top of the list of some of the best Tignanello ever made.
