2014 Antinori "Tignanello" Toscana

SKU #1248973 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The highlight in this range, the exquisite 2014 Tignanello is all about persistence and understated class. The aromatics alone are captivating. Sculpted, finely delineated flavors add to the wine's vivid personality. Because of the challenges posed by the growing season, the blend leans more heavily toward Cabernet Sauvignon than is typically the case. Above all else, though, the 2014 is all about harmony, and there is plenty of that here. Unfortunately, production is down 30%. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

Outer quote mark Exotic spice, cedar, purple flower, forest floor and wild berry are some of the aromas you’ll find in this fragrant, focused red. It’s loaded with finesse, delivering juicy Marasca cherry, cassis, star anise and white pepper with remarkable precision. It’s fresh and balanced by vibrant acidity and elegant, fine-grained tannins. (KO) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

Outer quote mark Really pretty aromas of currants and roses follow through to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Very well done for 2014 and a wonderful Tignanello to drink now or later. Inner quote mark (8/2017)

93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tignanello has this amazing ability of always being, well, Tignanello. Its very DNA makes it among the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. I'm happy to report that this is also the case for the 2014 Tignanello that faced very different growing conditions compared to most. The wine is beautiful and balanced with sweet tannins and a supporting oak texture that is neatly folded at the back. The wine is all about measure and proportion, and it aspires to these goals with an impressive sense of natural harmony. This is not an overtly powerful or muscular expression. Instead, it shows a tasty, almost savory form of elegance. This vintage was made with 75% Sangiovese, which means that the Cabernet presence is a tad bigger than normal. Ultimately, this wine is more finessed and delicate, and I appreciate the careful tannic management on display here. (ML) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Fine-grained tannins weave together this wine’s flavors of red cherries and summer strawberries, enlivened by cooling notes of bay leaf, mint and sage. It feels balanced and harmonious, with soft-leather tannins that make it approachable in youth, though, with its lively acidity, it has the potential to improve over several years.

The tough, rainy vintage of 2014 kept vineyard caretakers busy and all their hard work paid off with this aromatic Super Tuscan. The nose lifts with fresh red fruit and wild flowers. While I can't compare to previous vintages, the 2014 is full bodied with amiable tannin structure and a bold finish. The mouthwatering acidity wasn't washed away by the rain and keeps the wine fresh on the palate. I could definitely see putting this wine down for a few years or enjoying it tonight with a flavorful dinner!

Made of mostly Sangiovese with Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the nose is classic ripe cherries and strawberries and a hint of coco powder. On the palate of this full-bodied wine, you will find the fruit describe above with a touch of minerals and soft tannins, which gives this wine a very lush feel to the palate and has an incredible long finish. This wine was a HUGE hit at my last consumer tasting in S/F .

The nose is full of a dense, savory cassis like blend of fruit and earth, coupled with hints of leather, earth and a bit of baking spice. On the palate the wine has a long, linear feel to it, it still shows good weight on the mid-palate but its linear axis is dominant. The flavors show persistence and are a complex blend of savory fruit, earth that are aligned with the super fine grain tannic structure. This wine is truly elegant but not in a flimsy, simple, light way it has depth but it shows more restraint than overt boldness. An excellent choice of Filet Mignon.
Drink from 2017 to 2025

Behold the mighty Super Tuscan! With all the earthiness of a traditional Chianti and the rich, smoky profile and dense fruit of a Cabernet, comes the Tignanello from Antinori. This wine seems to bloom on the palate, with lush tarry flavors and aromas of tobacco, black cherry and tamarind. Aged in barriques and the first of its kind, this spectacular wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
