Tignanello 2016 is in full harmony with the vintage. This wine shows an intense and bright ruby red color. On the
nose, notes of ripe red fruits come together with pleasant hints of fresh blackberry and wild berries. At the same
time, it shows delicate and perfectly integrated aromas ofvanilla and dark chocolate with light spice sensations. On
the palate, the wine is vibrant, with silky and refined tannins. Balanced and intense, it has a long, complex and
persistent finish.

"The 2016 Tignanello is flat out stunning. Dark, dense and resonant, the 2016 is a wonderfully complete wine that will provide readers with decades of pure drinking pleasure. The 2016 is especially dark and brooding, and yet the tannins are incredibly polished to the point of being perceptible. In the glass, the 2016 is complete and regal, perhaps because of the super-classic blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in the wine's extraordinary balance and total sense of finesse. I don't think there is another wine anywhere in the world made entirely from estate fruit that can match Tignanello for quality, consistency and value within its peer group of top-flight reds. Drinking window 2022 – 2046." – Antonio Galloni, Vinous (August 2019) 97/100 Points
