Antinori Tignanello Toscana 2004 Wine Review (NW)
Amazing chocolate, rich berries, cherry, and some cedar on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Dense, long finish of dark berries, cedar, and savory spices
Excellent! Nearly 10 years old, this wine is still gaining depth and presence. While it's very enjoyable now, it will reward further patience in the cellar.
I got a great deal on a case of this wine a while back at $60 a bottle. Expect to pay more like $90 if you see it today. It's one of the great super-Tuscans- arguably the first super-Tuscan. Made with Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, it carries all the signature characteristics of the region and has endless layers on the finish.
Gather some friends or family, and raise a glass!
