Description

2017 "Tignanello" Toscana IGT,
Marchesi Antinori

Marchesi Antinori:
Er war der erste Sangiovese, der in Barrique verfeinert wurde, der erste moderne Rotwein, der sich aus nicht traditionellen Rebsorten (darunter Cabernet) zusammensetzt, und einer der ersten Rotweine aus dem Chianti, dem keine weißen Rebsorten hinzugesetzt wurden. Tignanello ist ein Meilenstein in der Geschichte des Weins. Der Wein wird aus einer Auswahl von Sangiovese-, Cabernet Sauvignon- und Cabernet Franc-Trauben hergestellt. 

Tignanello 2017 präsentiert sich in intensiv rubinroter Farbe. An der Nase beeindruckt er durch seine Komplexität. Noten von reifer roter Frucht wie in Alkohol eingelegte Kirsche, Amarenakirsche, Himbeere und Pflaume wechseln sich ab mit delikaten Gewürznoten von Nelke und Süßholz; sanfte Balsamnoten von Minze und Schokolade runden das komplexe Bouquet ab. Am Gaumen ist der Wein reich und vibrierend mit weichen samtigen Tanninen. Langes Finale und anhaltender Nachgeschmack, bei dem die an der Nase wahrgenommenen Noten wiederkehren.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
The Marchesi Antinori 2017 Tignanello (made with Sangiovese and smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc) is a dark, exuberant and inviting wine. I tasted my sample after a double decanting and was pleased by the profound nature of the wine and the immediate openness of the aromas. There is a symphony of dark fruit with black cherry, plum, spice and sweet tobacco. I am particularly attracted by a distant hint of medicinal or menthol herb that I also discovered in other wines with fruit from the Tignanello estate in 2017. There's a drying mineral note of crushed chalk as well. The heat and dryness of the vintage has added to the aromatic intensity of the wine (yields were reduced by a third), but the mouthfeel is carefully crafted to maintain its softness and smoothness. Fruit comes from a 57-hectare section of the Tenuta Tignanello from a vineyard that is located 390 meters above sea level with Alberese limestone rock and soils of marine origin. The wine is fermented in conical oak tanks and is aged up to 16 months in a combination of mostly French and some Hungarian oak, both new and neutral. Some 300,000 bottles were released in April 2020 after one year of bottle age. 

Vinous:
The 2017 Tignanello is dense, exotic and flamboyant. Red berry fruit, cherries in liqueur, blood orange, wild flowers and sweet spice are front and center in this sumptuous, racy Tignanello that is likely to drink beautifully right out of the gate. The Antinori team has done a terrific job with the 2017, a year in which heat and dry weather took with them 30% of the production. 

James Suckling:
A dense, really pinpointed red with plums and hazelnuts. Full-bodied and very polished with fine, creamy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Shows real finesse for the vintage. Better after 2023, but already a joy to taste.
