One of Italy's most recognized labels this blockbuster 85-10-5% Sangiovese-Cabernet Sauvignon-Cabernet Franc blend evolves slowly and seductively under your nose to reveal blackberry black cherry graphite notes well-integrated vanilla. The mouthfeel is lush and concentrated with silky smooth tannins and a long finish that revisits those gorgeous tobacco berry and dusty notes.

Very dark purple with an opulent nose. Even lusher than the Badia a Passignano 2001. Like super-ripe claret. Sweet and succulent with excellent balance. Dense and flattering. 18/20

A great vintage of Tignanello, this packs a range of sotto bosco flavors (traditional for the northern part of the Classico zone) in a relaxed, modern elegance. The flavors of woodland berries and sweet black cherries meld with foresty herb and tobacco tones - 15 percent of the blend is cabernet sauvignon, 5 percent is cabernet franc. The combination of sangiovese and oak feels as rich as the smoke off a Sobranie. An unbeatable seal-a-deal-with-a-steak wine.

In 2001 Tignanello captures a super-concentrated and dense expression of fruit that has been achieved with some loss of aromatic complexity and overall finesse. This is a super-ripe style with tons of dark fruit smoke and toasted oak in a heavily extracted style that veers on excess. There is remarkable power here but not the level of balance that is typical of the very finest vintages. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016.

Loads of blackberry coffee and olive aromas. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long subtle yet rich finish. A fine Tignanello that shows reserve and class. Best after 2007. 27500 cases made. -JS
