Very intense ruby red colour.
Nicely expressed varietal aromas with hints of black berry fruit.
The palate is weighty, dense and vibrant with complex structure thanks to support of the acidity. Long and lingering with hints of chocolate, coffee and marmalade in the aftertaste. The beautifully handled tannin from the wine and wood blend making Tignanello a very complex, stylish and sophisticated wine.
Tignanello is made exclusively from the vineyard of the same name which is situated on the Tignanello estate covering 47 south-west-facing hectares at altitudes between 350 and 400 metres a.s.l..
For all three varieties, fermentation took placed at an average temperature of 27°, and an absolute maximum of 31°, to preserve as greatly as possible the aromas and typical features of the fruit. Devatting, at the end of alcoholic fermentation, the wines were placed in new oak barriques where malolactic fermentation took place by the end of the year.
Placed in new oak barriques where malolactic fermentation took place by the end of the year. They were then blended and aged for 12 months in barriques, racked and then tasted barrique by barrique before bottling. After another year ageing in the bottles the wine was released for sale.
First plates to the gravy, red and white meats, mannered and cheeses, wine from meditation.
