Tignanello 2013 Antinori
Intensely ruby red in color with purple highlights, the 2013 Tignanello shows an intense nose of ripe red fruit in additionto notes of vanilla, chocolate, and leather imparted from the oak. Spicy and balsamic sensations give additional complexity in the layers of aromatics. The wine is ample and enveloping on the palate with supple tannins and a savory freshness that fullyrespects the character and personality of the Sangiovese grape. The balance between acidity and tannins is excellent and thefinish and aftertaste are of a lovely length and persistence.
