2016 vintge.

The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four; that’s twenty-six generations of uninterrupted family ownership. The first recorded mention of the family dates from 1188, when they worked in the silk trade. They moved to Florence in the early thirteenth century, and remain central figures in the fabric of the city; Piazza Antinori is the square in the historic centre where their offices are located. Winemaking was added to the family’s activities in 1385, and during the sixteenth century the wines spread, along with Antinori’s reputation, to France, Flanders, Spain and North Africa. The purchase of the Tignanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion, which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany’s – arguably Italy’s – pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia. Marchese Piero Antinori sums up the company’s outlook thus: “Ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our spirit of innovation.”

This is deep, rich, dark and fragrant on the nose, with notes of berry fruit, spice, oak and summer flowers. Full-bodied and powerful on the palate, black fruit from the Cabernets dominates the attack at present, but with silky Sangiovese making its presence felt too. Very impressive, and almost impenetrable at this youthful stage, this has great fruit, depth, complexity, acidity and fine yet grippy tannins. This looks like it will be a great Tignanello, but will need more time than most vintages to show its best

Tasting Note:
A big, lush style, this red delivers pure aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry, violet, flint, tobacco and baking spices.
