Wine Advocate 92 points - The 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. This is a remarkably vibrant and primary Tignanello. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
This is a beautiful set of wines from Antinori. All of these new releases are dense, primary and endowed with tons of fruit. At the same time, the firm tannins require at least a few years of aging to allow them to start melting away. The estateís 2006s are beautiful, but they donít appear to possess the elegance of the superb 2004s. (Jan 2009)
80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc.
