INFORMATION OF INTEREST Antinori Tignanello 2016
Colour: Clean, clear and bright. Maroon color with ruby highlights. Medium layer intensity. Very nice to see.
Aroma: The nose is aromatic complexity. The aromas of red fruits and plum are combined with the attractive and attractive balsamic touches, where liquorice, with small cocoa shavings, go through the aromatic catalog.
Taste: Entry into the mouth, where the seduction of wine mesmerizes you from the first moment. Full-bodied, but with a velvety sensation that encourages you to taste the wine while counting the flow (according to how long the wine is on the palate). Elegant, balanced acidity, with a long, tasty finish with a spectacular aftertaste of mineral notes.
To accompany .... With the typical cuisine of Tuscany as a Panino al lampredotto (beef sandwich), papardelle with meat and tomato sauce, ribollita that is a pot of vegetables and tomato sauce, cheeses, and all dishes where the complexity of flavors is more than assured.
Tignanello was the first Sangiovese aged in barrels, the first contemporary red wine mixed with non-traditional varieties (specifically Cabernet) and one of the first red wines in the Chianti Classico region that did not use white grapes. Tignanello is a landmark. It is produced with a selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
The Tenuta Tignanello estate is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, on the gently undulating slopes between the valleys of the Greve and Pesa rivers. It extends over an area of 319 hectares (788 acres), of which about 130 (321 acres) is dedicated to vines. Two of the estate's prized vineyards are located on the same hillside, Tignanello and Solaia, on soils that originated in the Pliocene-era marine loam, rich in limestone and shale. The vines enjoy warm temperatures during the day and cooler nights during the growing season. The two characteristic wines of the estate, Solaia and Tignanello, are produced from these vineyards and have been defined by the international press as "among the most influential wines in the history of Italian viticulture". According to Marchesi Antinori, Solaia and Tignanello are a continuous challenge and an endless passion. The Tignanello estate has vineyards of indigenous Sangiovese grapes, as well as some other non-traditional varieties, such as Cabernet Franc.
