Marchesi Antinori Tignanello Toscana IGT 2012, Tuscany, Italy
PRESS: James Suckling - 96 points. "Aromas of blackcurrants and blueberries with hints of lavender and violets. Full body, chewy and polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. A beautifully linear and polished red. Give it time to show it all but this is already a beauty. The depth and class to this are indeed impressive. Better in 2017."

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Tignanello is an intense ruby red color with purple highlights. The wine is potent and complex on the nose withspicy notes which mingle with aromas of red fruit, like cherries and plums, smoke, balsamic sensations, licorice and rosemary.The flavors are mouth- filling and elegant with much volume and an excellent balance in the texture. The oak is perfectly fused inthe spicy and fruity finish and aftertaste.
