The 2019 Antinori, Tignanello, Tuscany was a Merchant's Pick

Antinori's Tignanello

July 03, 2019

Antinori's Tignanello is the most recognized Super Tuscan.

From a stunning 2019 vintage, few Tuscan blends can match this classic combination of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Receiving 96 points from Wine Spectator, Antinori's Tignanello is an iconic wine:  "A supple, elegant red highlighted by bright cherry, black currant, violet, tobacco, iron and oak spice aromas and flavors. Though fluid and seemingly approachable now, this is well-structured and shows the balance to age. Fine length. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc."  Wine Spectator

We love this Super Tuscan for its consistency, finesse, and beautiful balance year after year. 

A Wine Spectator Top 10 contender, we expect this wine to sell out rather quickly.

While supplies last.  First come, first served.

The Most Recognized Super Tuscan

By David Gettenberg

"Aromas of underbrush, plum, blue flower, cocoa and camphor."

Wine Enthusiast • 99/100

"This fragrant, savory red carries aromas of underbrush, plum, blue flower, cocoa and camphor on the nose. The polished palate boasts juicy Marasca cherry, ripe blackberry, licorice, tobacco and an appealing hint of game. Silky tannins and bright acidity keep it balanced and elegant."

"Top of the list of some of the best Tignanello ever made."

Wine Advocate • 97/100

"To hit the market in June, the 2016 Tignanello is a rock-solid wine and a stunning beauty. The wine offers an impeccable level of precision and laser-focus delivery of fruits, spices, tilled earth, espresso beans and Mediterranean herbs. This vintage follows the classic blending formula of 80% Sangiovese with about 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc. The vines are now 15 to 20 years old. Compared to the 2015 vintage that ultimately appeared more chewy and succulent, this expression from the iconic 2016 vintage is more vibrant, nervous and jazzed. It shows more savory spice, saltiness and minerality, with a beautifully integrated quality of tannins. This wine is at the top of the list of some of the best Tignanello ever made, including the vintages 2007, 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2015."

"A big, lush style."

Wine Spectator • 97/100

"A big, lush style, this red delivers pure aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry, violet, flint, tobacco and baking spices. This is supple, yet backed by a firm, dense matrix of tannins, so all the components are there, but this needs time to integrate. Lovely sweet, ripe finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc."

"Great finish."

James Suckling • 97/100

"Wonderful aromas of pine needles, rosemary, fresh mushrooms, bark and dark fruit. Full body. Very tight and tannic backbone. Racy and driven. Undertones of orange peel and wet earth. Even licorice and mint. Great finish. Better after 2021, but exciting to taste now."
