After a hour in the decanter, this 2006 Tignanello came with a great complexity, smoothness and balance. There is also a sentimental factor to help the enjoyment: we bought it at a enoteca in Siena few years ago.

Still too young but quite well structured and balanced. Less depth that I remembered of 2004 vintage. Gonna wait for few more years
