Marchesi Antinori Tignanello Toscana IGT 2010, Tuscany, Italy
PRESS: James Suckling - 96 points. "One of the best Tignanellos ever made. Aromas of currants and blueberries with hints of flowers. Full body, with fine tannins and a refined finish. A red that delivers balance and beauty. Rich and gorgeous. Best Tignanello in years."

Winemaker Notes: An intense ruby red in color, the aromas of the wine are characterized by a powerful varietal expressiveness, with ample notes of red fruit, raspberries, and liquorice. On the palate, the wine, still very young, immediately shows firm tannins with much polish and finesse as well, along with a balancing, tonic acidity and savory mineral notes which add length and persistence to the finish and aftertaste.
