Tasting Notes

Tignanello 2016 is in full harmony with the vintage. Intense ruby ​​red, for some aspects, lively. On the nose the notes of

ripe red fruit combine with pleasant hints of fresh blackberry and wild berries. Delicate and perfectly integrated

aromas of vanilla, bitter chocolate and light spices. On the palate it is vibrant, with silky and refined tannins.

Balanced and intense with a long, complex and persistent finish.
