"An intense ruby red in color with purple highlights, the 2013 Tignanello shows a nose of great red fruit intensity along with highly pleasurable notes of vanilla, chocolate, and leather from the well balanced contribution and fusion of the aromas of the oak. The spicy and balsamic sensations which give additional complexity are also quite important. The wine is ample and enveloping on the palate with supple tannins and a savory freshness which fully respects the character and personality of the Sangiovese grape. The balance between acidity and tannins is excellent, and the finish and aftertaste are of a lovely length and persistence." —winemaker

Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 5% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Anthology review:
The 2013 Tignanello benefited tremendously from the ideal weather during the September-October harvest period, ensuring a magnificent wine from fruit that ripened slowly and evenly. With aromas of sweet cherry liqueur, fresh herbs, licorice, struck flint, and tobacco, this 2013 packs a real punch to the nose that doesn't let up on the intense, full-bodied mouthfeel. It retains a suaveness and elegance that tempers its considerable power, with a finish that features velvety tannins that will only get smoother with age.
#8, Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2016

"This is amazing on the nose with blackberry, black truffle, dried cherry and hints of tobacco. So complex on the nose. Almost no need to taste it. Full body, soft and velvety tannins, and a persistent, fabulous finish. The mouthfeel is magic. 80% sangiovese and 20% cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold." —JamesSuckling.com

"The 2013 Tignanello represents the beginning of a new chapter for Italy's ultimate game-changer wine. The blend remains 80% Sangiovese with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc but Renzo Cotarella tells me "stylistically-speaking, this is what we wanted to achieve." The winemaking formula remains the same, but one of the major differences and benefits to this wine is vineyard age. The celebrated Tignanello single vineyard is now reaching 15 years old. In other words, it is in its production prime. This is a harmonious and beautifully integrated wine that reveals black fruit and baking spice. I'm told the 2014 Tignanello will have a greater percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2015 vintage will have more Sangiovese." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"Aromas of graphite, smoke and tobacco introduce the cherry flavor in this expressive, focused red. Firm tannins and lively acidity balance the fruit and purity, while herbal, spice and mineral elements all gather steam as this plays out on the long finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2027. 2,500 cases imported." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
