SEE!!! I Told You 2010 Tignanello Was Going To Be Great!!!
A few months ago when we started pre-selling the 2010 Tignanello I made the prediction that THIS wine and THIS vintage from Tuscany were going to be great. I am currently on a flight to California to taste/blend new-release wines and I am reading through Antonio Galloni’s most recent article post on his web site (www.vinousmedia.com) :
"In a Tuscan State of Mind...In my view, 2010 will go down as one of the great all-time vintages in Tuscany. The wines show beautifully delineated aromatics, punchy fruit and vibrant, mouth-watering acidity..."
Hmmmmm...sounds like a great vintage...No???
"Antinori's 2010 Tignanello is stunning, as it has been since I started tasting the component wines in 2011. Firm yet sweet, silky tannins form the backbone for this gorgeous, vivid wine. Dark red cherries, plums, cloves, mint and sage inform a Tignanello that impresses for its delineation, nuance and power. Clean, saline notes support the mineral-drenched finish...endowed with tremendous energy and vibrancy. I can't remember a Tignanello with this much crystalline tension and pure energy. Simply put, the 2010 Tignanello is a magnificent, towering wine from Antinori...96." Antonio Galloni 8/13.
Hmmmmmm...sounds like a great Tignanello...No?
We still have stocks available on all sizes...but I see this as a vintage that could potentially be sold out even before we hit Thanksgiving. My advice, grab it while it is still around as this is a classic!!
