The Sangiovese grapes for this Chianti Classico are grown on the Tignanello estate in the heart of the Chianti region in Tuscany. Fragrant with bright cherry, pink florals, wild herbs and tart cherry flavours on the palate. Beautiful balance of fruit to acidity. Tannins are velvety. Enjoy now and for the next 10 years. Pair with a grilled vegetable lasagne and rich tomato sauce.

Chianti Classico food pairings: hearty stews, sausage cassoulet, meaty lasagne.

Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

rom Tenuta Tignanello, home of the renown Solaia and Tignanello vineyards in the heart of Chianti Classico, this classic Chianti Riserva lives up to its pedigree. Savoury notes of dried herbs lead on the nose and open up to raspberry and cherry. The palate is fruity and smooth with sandy tannins and a long finish. Drinking beautifully now but will continue to deliver for another decade. Serve with meat sauces and ragus. Tasted Nov 15, 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
From the Tuscany wine region, Marchese Antinori Tenuta Tignanello Riserva 2015 is a full-bodied and robust 90% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet sauvignon red wine blend with ripe cherry aromas, blackberry, dark chocolate and oak spice flavours mouth-watering on the palate. Pair with grilled meats. The wine is aged in small oak casks for 14 months followed by another 12 months in bottle before being released from the winery. The Sangiovese wine grapes are sourced from P├Ęppoli, Badia a Passignano and Tignanello estates. - Community Wine Reviews
