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. 

"The 2018 Tignanello is a wine of breathtaking purity. Impossibly silky and persistent, the 2018 is all class, all the way. In many ways, the 2018 reminds me of the 2004 because of its finesse , but it has an extra degree of nuance that reflects important strides that have been made at the estate in the intervening years. Winemaking today is more gentle, while new oak is also less intrusive. The result is a Tignanello that bristles with class. The purity of the flavors alone is mesmerizing. Bright red-toned berries, mocha, spice, cedar, new leather and licorice are some of the many notes that linger on a finish framed by silky, perfectly ripe tannins." 97 pts, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"This is so aromatic with flowers, such as cherry blossoms and roses, together with currants and blackberries. A medium-bodied Tignanello with very fine tannins and depth. Racy and very, very long finish. Pure and refined. Lots of blue fruit. Tight at the end, but showing a sophisticated and reserved style. Very refined. Drinkable now, but will age nicely." 96 pts, James Suckling
