"Tignanello blev fremstillet første gang i 1971, hvor vinen skabte forargelse. Det var den første Sangiovese lagret i "barriques", frem for de traditionelle "Botti". Det var den første vin med "den forbudte" franske drue Cabernet i druesammensætningen, frem for de dengang lovmæssigt påkrævede grønne druer. Med Tignanello skabte Antinori, hvad der i dag anses for at være en af de mest indflydelsesrige vine i vindyrkningens historie Italien, og en af de første vine kendt som "supertoscanere". Den fremstilles typisk af 80 % Sangiovese, 15 % Cabernet Sauvignon og 5 % Cabernet Franc. Lagringen varer mellem 16 og 18 måneder og finder sted på små fade af fransk og ungarsk eg. Tignanello fremstilles kun i de bedste årgange og imponerer altid med sin dybde, klasse, kompleksitet, og en balanceret og på en gang rig og stringent kraft, der munder ud i en lang og detaljeret finish. Serveres til de fineste retter med vildt, oksekød eller lam."
"The winter of 2014 was a rather mild season with temperatures slightly higher than normal averages for the period. This led to an early bud burst of all the grape varieties - Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. The spring season was marked by dry and mild weather which assisted a good flowering and bud set of the crop. The rainy summer slowed the processes of color change and ripening in the grapes, which re-balanced themselves in part during the good September thanks to days of warm and sunny weather. Preceded by a green harvest, the picking took place between the second half of September and early October."
”Really pretty aromas of currants and roses follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Very well done for 2014 and a wonderful Tignanello to drink now or later. Better in 2019” James Suckling 94p
"A black currant thread winds through this dense, muscular red, with cherry, leather, earth, iron and mineral flavors. Firm and fleshy, with fine balance and a long, expansive finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon." Wine Spectator 93p
"Tignanello has this amazing ability of always being, well, Tignanello. Its very DNA makes it among the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. I'm happy to report that this is also the case for the 2014 Tignanello that faced very different growing conditions compared to most. The wine is beautiful and balanced with sweet tannins and a supporting oak texture that is neatly folded at the back. The wine is all about measure and proportion, and it aspires to these goals with an impressive sense of natural harmony. This is not an overtly powerful or muscular expression. Instead, it shows a tasty, almost savory form of elegance. This vintage was made with 75% Sangiovese, which means that the Cabernet presence is a tad bigger than normal. Ultimately, this wine is more finessed and delicate, and I appreciate the careful tannic management on display here." Wine Advocate 93p
"The highlight in this range, the exquisite 2014 Tignanello is all about persistence and understated class. The aromatics alone are captivating. Sculpted, finely delineated flavors add to the wine's vivid personality. Because of the challenges posed by the growing season, the blend leans more heavily toward Cabernet Sauvignon than is typically the case. Above all else, though, the 2014 is all about harmony, and there is plenty of that here. Unfortunately, production is down 30%." Antonio Galloni 96p
