A wine of many firsts – 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 not to use white grapes. Tignanello is a milestone.
It is produced with a selection of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and the wine itself shows an intense and bright ruby red colour. 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 of vanilla 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.
