Antinori Tignanello 2006

Tuscany, ItalyFrom the cellar. This wine wears its age like a cloak, flashing its core richness briefly before swooping away into a flourish of lingering memories. In this case, there is a dried leather, dried violets, dried cherry on the palate, before sticky, still-ample tannins overtake the lingering, vanilla-licked finish. A prized vintage for the Antinori house, this Super Tuscan blend is 80/15/5/ sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon/ cabernet franc. Showing much more mature than I would expect for a decade; drink now if you have.Tasted: 13 March 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 96.00 specialty listing AB 99.00 fine wine shops ON 98.00 Vintages Essentials QC 98.00 Producer: Marchesi AntinoriDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
