TIGNANELLO, Antinori, Italy. (£phone shop for 6 bot)

Quantity:

The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s – arguably Italy’s – pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia as well as their Tuscan heartland.

TASTING NOTES

A powerful Tignanello, the 2011 offers a combination of ripe, dark fruit and an underlying freshness, reflecting the vintage conditions. Plum and cherries mingle with mint and liquorice, creating a vivid, harmonious balance from the first impression through to the long, savoury finish.

Tenuta Tignanello is situated between the Greve and Pesa valleys in the heart of Chianti Classico.
