1997 Tignanello, Marchesi Antinori

Toscana IGT

$170.00 per Bottle


4 Bottles




"A fabulous Tuscan red, young and racy. Deep dark ruby in color, with focused aromas of blackberries, wood and very ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Best after 2003. 27,000 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Very full ruby-garnet, dark and deep. Ample in aroma, with sweet cassis fruit, light accents of sage and rosemary, chocolate and roasted coffee from the oak, and some alcoholic warmth. Dense, round and velvety on the palate, with expanding flavors. Finishes with important tannic strength and impressive weight and force. The fusion of the sangiovese and cabernet components of this wine is more accomplished than in past vintages." Daniel Thomases, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"The 1997 Tignanello is a blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc, aged in small French oak casks for 12 months, and bottled with no filtration. It possesses a dense, ruby/purple color, and an expansive nose of black currants, cherry compote, vanillin, and earth. Sweet, jammy, and opulently-textured, this expansive, concentrated, low acid wine is flashy and gorgeously-proportioned. It should drink well for 10-15 years, although who can ignore it now?"

"Dark crimson almost right out to rim. Well mannered blend on the nose. Attractive, well mannered, more international style than either of the wines above - it would make a good introduction to Sangiovese. Slight bitterness on the finish. Not especially long or intense but very well made." JancisRobinson.com
