Tignanello 2015 Magnum
Tignanello 2015 MARCHESI ANTINORI Toscana Rosso
The climate of the 2015 vintage was an extremely regular one and respected, in its various phases and seasons, the typical weather of the Chianti Classico production zone.
A cold and relatively dry winter preceded a spring characterized by damp weather in March and April and dry weather in May and June.
In this period, temperatures were regular, guaranteeing a perfect growth of vegetation and an excellent phase of flowering and bud set for the grapes.
The summer was a warm one, with peak temperatures in July, but also with highly positive temperature swings from daytime warmth to evening and nighttime coolness which assured a constant growth of the grape bunches free of stress.
The month of August, warm as well, was characterized by occasional rainfall which favored a fine onset to the ripening of the crop.
Picking took place between mid-September and early October in a climate of dry and breezy weather.
Here’s a structured red with lots of finesse.
It opens with alluring aromas of fragrant blue flowers, red berries, baking spices and exotic herbs while the firm, vibrant palate delivers black cherry, crushed raspberry, clove, orange zest, licorice and a sprinkling of white pepper. It’s still young but well balanced, with tightly woven but polished tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2017–2024.
