Tignanello, Antinori, 2016 - 1.5l
This Tignanello offers the twin appeals of rarity alongside quality. Around 340,000 of this 2015 vintage were produced in total, and while these may sound substantial, one sip will have you wondering where you may source the next. Deliciously ripe and unmistakably Italian, this red bursts with blackberries and cherries, which are smoothed and tempered by hints of tobacco, cacao, smoke, leather and spice. For a strong and memorable taste experience, look no further than Tignanello; Italian red rarely comes more full-bodied and intense, especially when paired with food.
Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon

ABOUT THE VINEYARD
Tuscany has a rich tradition of winemaking, and few family names are so closely connected to the trade as that of Antinori. This legacy has been producing wine in the region since the 14th century, and shows no sign of slowing down any time soon., Now under the stewardship of the twenty-sixth generation, the Tignanello estate was acquired in 1900. Antinori owns access to some 1,400 hectares of growing territory in Italy, leading to production of some the more memorable and pre-eminent wines to emerge from the country.
