(80% sangiovese, 15% cabernet sauvignon and 5% cabernet franc): Medium red. Slightly reduced aromas of candied raspberry, ripe dark cherry, coffee and underbrush, accented by peppery herbs and spices. Enters the mouth full and ripe, then turns leaner and tougher, with juicy red berry and spice flavors framed by soft acidity. Clearly a warm-vintage wine, offering only modest complexity and depth for Tignanello, with a slightly overripe red fruit character. A wine I usually quite like, this strikes me as being one of the less memorable Tignanellos made. The long finish hints at subtle fruit and soft acidity.
