Marchesi Antinori Tignanello 2017

Bottle size and vintage
Tignanello, produced since 1971 only in the best vintages, is a wine that has had a profound effect on the history of Italian winemaking. Apart from being the first Sangiovese aged in barrel, it was also the first to modernise its coupage with non-traditional varieties. It's made from Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon originating from the vineyards of Tenuta Tignanello, the historic estate belonging to the Antinori family, where the vines cover an area of 57 ha and enjoy a south-westerly orientation, lying on limestone soils and at an altitude of 350 to 400 metres.
Tignanello appears a very bright ruby-red colour. On the nose, the complexity of the initial sensations is impressive, with a noteworthy presence of red and black berries and sweet spices. Following on afterwards are more masculine notes, of leather and pipe tobacco, on a balsamic background which provides overall profundity. On the palate it's enveloping, clean and fluid, with smoothness and freshness perfect balanced. A wine that converts the Sangiovese's power into absolute refinement. A real pleasure from the first to the last drop.

Un grand vin plein de souvenirs de nos vacances en Toscane
Ce vin est toujours un régal qui doit se laisser apprécier: le bon moment, les bons plats et des convives de qualité. Notre meilleur souvenir fut un Tignanello sur deux grands plateaux de dégustation avec des charcuteries, des légumes et une préparation à base de procini à tomber ! A ne pas boire trop jeune.
