    Description

    Tignanello 2001
    Antinori
    5owc
    Magnum (6)

    The White Collection. Property of a Los Angeles area lady. All wines purchased by her late husband at Sotheby's and stored underground in a chilly temperature and humidity controlled purpose-built cellar.

    "In 2001 Tignanello captures a super-concentrated and dense expression of fruit that has been achieved with some loss of aromatic complexity and overall finesse. This is a super-ripe style with tons of dark fruit, smoke and toasted oak in a heavily extracted style that veers on excess. There is remarkable power here..." (92 pts. Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Nov. 2008)

    "The 2001 Tignanello is an object lesson in how to make Cabernet work with Sangiovese, the two varieties balancing and enhancing one another in admirable symbiosis. (The percentage of Cabernet, in fact, was reduced from the previous 20% to 15% in this vintage, an important sign - I hope - of how the wind is blowing.) A blackish ruby, its perfectly focused plum and cassis fruit, given an additional complexity by notes of sweet herbs and saddle leather, is fully and completely shaped in flavors of impeccable volume, roundness, and depth, caressing and powerful and with an additional power on the close..." (93 pts. Daniel Thomases, Wine Advocate #164, Apr. 2006)
