The 2009 Tignanello is quite beautiful. Cedar graphite sweet herbs licorice and leather add complexity to a core of highly expressive red fruits. The 2009 impresses for its energy drive and focus. Today the 2009 comes across as slightly understated relative to many recent vintages especially 2007 and 2008. There is a silkiness and polish that is reminiscent of the 2004. Tignanello is 75% Sangiovese 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc from vineyards in San Casciano Val di Pesa one of the most evocative hillsides in all of Italy. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. Longtime winemaker Renzo Cotarella has done a fabulous job with the flagships Tignanello and Solaia in 2009. In my blind tastings the pedigree of those two wines in particular came through with notable eloquence. The 2010 Tignanello and Solaia are both thrilling at this stage. They could very well turn out even better than the 2009s. Readers may want to look at my short video on the 2010s from Antinori on our website.

Laced with black cherry plum and spice flavors this generous red firms up on the finish. Balanced with accents of tobacco and black tea lingering. Best from 2014 through 2025. -B.S.
