On release, Tignanello 2006 has a very intense ruby red color and balanced ripe red fruit and spicy aromas on the nose. It is has a full, rich and round rich palate, dense without hiding its great elegance and complexity. A powerful wine, yet fine and pleasant to drink, with good length and an aftertaste packed with chocolate and citrus fruits. The tannins are pronounced, but smooth and silky, which, together with balanced acidity, assures Tignanello good ageing potential.

Wine EnthusiastThanks to its excellent quality and universal appeal, you can count on Tignanello to make an excellent impression with any elegant meal. Based on Sangiovese, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine delivers an interesting power play that pits cherry fruit against vibrant spice. It is tight and firm in the mouth with a slightly sweet or soft note on the close.

Wine SpectatorIntense aromas of ripe blackberry and flowers, with rosemary and coffee hints. Full-bodied, with chewy, polished tannins. Excellent fruit concentration and a flavorful aftertaste. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2012.

Wine AdvocateThe 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. Today it is remarkably vibrant and primary. Tignanello is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
