96 Points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: "Exhibiting black currant, black cherry and cedar notes, this is reminiscent of the 1990, except younger and with greater density. Very fresh, this echoes the fruit, woodsy and spice elements on the long aftertaste.—Non-blind Tignanello vertical (October 2019). Drink now through 2032. 27,000 cases made." 2020
94 Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "During the recorking ceremony for the 1971 Tignanello, I had the opportunity to taste four editions of the wine spanning the four decades of its production. The 1997 Tignanello was by far the most enjoyable of these wines. It is experiencing a perfect moment in its drinking window. Looking through The Wine Advocate archive, I see the suggestion of brett in a past review. I found absolutely no imperfections in this wine. Instead, the bouquet is generous and opulent with dark berry, spice, licorice and leather. Much of the Tignanello vineyards were replanted in the 1990s so I expect that the fruit came from younger vines. The finish is silky and long in persistency." 10/15
