Tignanello is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc aged for 14 months in French and Hungarian oak. The first vintage was in 1970, made by the legendary winemaker Giacomo Tachis and still labelled as a Chianti. The introduction of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, the use of French barriques and the elimination of the then-mandatory white varieties helped the wine to acquire immediate recognition and to start the “Supertuscan” revolution. 

"This celebrated red blend is of course mostly Sangiovese with about 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. If 2015 is an ideal vintage for Tuscan blended reds made with the great Bordeaux varieties, the 2016 vintage is better suited to Italian grapes such as Sangiovese. This classic vintage of Tignanello has a leg up, albeit slim, over the previous vintage precisely because the protagonist here is Sangiovese. This wine shows a high caliber of fresh primary fruit that is direct and intense. In the mouth, the wine is focused and sharp. Ultimately, the 2016 Tignanello is slightly more streamlined compared to the more fleshy 2015. This adds to the firm elegance you get here." 95-97/100 Monica Larner, Wine Advocate
