Only bottled in favourable vintages, Tignanello, was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels, the first modern red wine to use such non-traditional varieties as Cabernet Sauvignon, and among the first red wines from the Chianti Classico area to be produced without white grapes.
In 1971 it became a Tuscan red table wine rather than a Chianti Classico, and was called Tignanello. In the 1975 vintage the percentage of white grapes was definitively eliminated from the blend and ever since 1982, the blend has been the one currently used.
Tignanello 2016 is in full harmony with the vintage. This wine 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.
