Description & Technical Information
-
Tignanello was the first Sangiovese to be aged in barriques, the first contemporary red wine blended with untraditional varieties, specifically Cabernet and one of the first red wines in the Chianti Classico region that didn’t use white grapes. Tignanello is a milestone and set the trend for many other "super tuscans" that followed. It’s produced with a selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

Weather: The 2019 growing season in Chianti Classico was defined by normal climatic conditions, winter was rather cold with limited rainfall and the first half of spring was cool and rainy especially during the months of April and May. Summer weather was hot, uninterrupted by major heat spikes, with slightly higher than average precipitation levels ensuring a normal growth cycle of both the vines and grape clusters. Ideal climatic conditions set in at the end of August and continued throughout September and October allowing all grape varieties grown on the Tenuta Tignanello estate to reach optimal ripeness. Harvesting activities began during the second half of September with Sangiovese and were concluded at the beginning of October with the other grape varieties.

Technical Information:
Grape Varieties: 90% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Franc
Alcohol: 14%
Production: 164,000

Tasting Note: On the nose, intense notes of ripe red fruit, cherries, currants, and raspberries lead over to delicate floral scents of dog rose, violets and lavender. Its bouquet is completed by typical sanguine sensations together with pleasant spicy hints of tobacco, cinnamon, cloves with a sweet note of milk chocolate. Its palate is well-balanced with lively, silky tannins that impart freshness and sustain a savory, persistent finish.

Expert Reviews
93/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is rich, layered and exceptionally polished. This is an especially serious vintage for the Marchese Antinori. All of the fruit comes from the Antinori family's Tignanello estate. Silky tannins wrap around a core of dark red cherry/plum, spice, leather and tobacco. There's tremendous weight, power and depth, that much is pretty clear”
94/100
Monica Larner
“This wine sources its fruit exclusively from the Tenuta Tignanello in San Casciano Val di Pesa. The 2019 Chianti Classico Riserva Marchese Antinori is a generous and open-knit wine with pretty plushness and dark fruit flavors of cherry, plum and dried currant. It ages in barrique with a lot of secondhand or otherwise neutral oak, and that's why the fruit comes through with such clarity. This is one of the big surprises of this flight, and this vintage certainly punches above its price point. These results show depth, harmony and lasting fruit flavors. This is a solid recommendation.”
