1999 Tignanello, Antinori, Toscana
The original Super Tuscan for over fifty years, and from the Tenuta Tignanello estate in the heart of Chianti Classico. In the history of Italian viticulture, few wines have been so influential, few as iconic as this, Antinoris flagship label. Blending sangiovese with what is otherwise untraditional, Bordelais varietals cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, here is sheer, Tuscan terroir expression. And in the very warm 1999 vintage, great ripeness of fruit that is now showing its full potential for intriguing complexity and maturity.
"Pale garnet colour with a touch of brick. The nose is a little closed and restrained yet with some coaxing opens out into an amazing array of dark cherry, dried cranberry, forest floor and tobacco aromas with an exotic sprinkling of Chinese five spice. The palate fills the entire mouth with ripe, concentrated fruit. Perfectly balanced with high acidity and a medium+ level of fine tannins. Very long finish." 95 points, The Wine Advocate
