With fruit sourced from the same site as one of Italy's most celebrated red wines, the 2011 Chianti Classico Riserva Tenuta Tignanello is a wine that bridges two wine philosophies. It is a denomination wine (a Chianti Classico Riserva) with a super Tuscan tinge. The bouquet shows medium intensity with a distinctly floral personality with red rose and pressed blue flowers at the top. Bright acidity keeps the palate revived, sip after sip. Summer heat in 2011, resulting from drying winds that caused spots of heat stress across the Italian peninsula, shows its mark in the grand wines of Italy’s flagship estate. I was especially interested to see how Tignanello and Solaia would perform this year. No doubt, these are standout wines, but there’s no denying the ripe tones packed deep within the flesh of these two vino italiano protagonists. They do not reach the grand heights of recent years.
