Appellation Toscana IGT
Grape Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
Serving temperature 16-18 C
Taste Intensely ruby red in color, Tignanello is remarkable on the nose for its complexity. Notes of ripe red fruits such as cherries preserved in spirits, sour cherries, raspberries and plums complement delicate spicy aromas of cloves and licorice; sweet balsamic notes of mint and chocolate complete its complex bouquet. On the palate it is rich, mouth-filling and vibrant with supple velvety tannins. Its lengthy finish and persistent aftertaste bring back aromatic notes perceived on the nose.
Pairing Beef, lamb, veal, poultry, charcuterie
Curiosity Tignanello is produced exclusively from the vineyard of the same name, a parcel of some 140 acres (57 hectares) with limestone-rich soils and a south western exposure at 1150-1325 feet (350-400 meters)above sealevelat the Tignanello estate. It was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels, the first modern red wine to use such non-traditional varieties as Cabernet in the blend, and among the first red wines from the Chianti Classico area to be produced without white grapes.
