2007

Tignanello 2007 is a wine which presents itself with a great impact. To the nose this wine opens with a pleasant
concentration of aromas ranging from ripe red fruit to spiciness; with hints of vanilla and toasty notes which
compose a bouquet with great persistence and elegance. It is a wine of unquestionable personality, with typical
characteristics which deeply bond the wine with the land where it was born, exalting and rewarding this maximum
expression of the wonderfully ripened sangiovese, so particularly optimal in this harvest.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Antinori's 2007 Tignanello is wonderfully ripe and seductive in its dark cherries, flowers, spices, tobacco, sage, cedar, mint and minerals. This is as opulent a Tignanello as I have ever tasted but there is just enough acidity and structure from the Sangiovese to keep things from going over the top. The wine's richness and warmth are such that in a blind tasting I mistook the 2007 Tignanello for a wine from Maremma! The dense, muscular fruit follows through to an impeccable finish with no hard edges and impossibly fine, silky tannins. Simply put, the 2007 is a magnificent Tignanello. The 2007 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300-liter French oak barrels (1/3 new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225-liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027.
