2002 Tignanello by Antinori, Tuscany

Step forward the 2002 Tignanello from Antinori, a brooding acting force in the world of Italian winemaking. For many discerning connoisseurs of fine wines from Italy, this vintage becomes a touchstone, marrying both tradition and groundbreaking audacity in a confident display. This particular year saw a challenging climatic dance between April frosts and later flash floods, ultimately creating a lower yield - yet resulting in a rich concentration that sets the 2002 vintage apart.


A sublime testament to its birthplace

The 2002 Tignanello from Antinori sings praises of the Tuscan terroir it originated from. A blend predominantly of Sangiovese with hints of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, this vintage refuses to succumb to an easy categorisation. The sangiovese confers onto it a veritable heart of ruby while the cabernets reveal themselves in an audacious hint of blackcurrants and vanilla undertones.

At its first rendezvous with your senses, it weaves narratives of sun-soaked Mediterranean gardens and smoky woodlands. Subsequent sips ground this flight of imagination as the robust acidity cuts through for an invigorating finish.


Innovation meets tradition – Investing in Italian fine wine

The Tignanello is often considered to be one of the pioneering wines for what came to be known as 'Super-Tuscans'. It boldly defied the traditional term 'Chianti', using French Cabernets in its blend and taking risks that were rewarded by global appreciation.

The 2002 harvest exemplified sustainable viticulture by using harder-to-grow but lower-yield vines which ultimately amplified the flavor complexity. This sets the 2002 Tignanello from Antinori as an attractively grounded selection for a potential wine investment.

With its harmonious symphony of old and new, the 2002 Tignanello gives us a daring synthesis of Tuscan traditions with Antinori's innovative winemaking. A vintage that has embodied resilience, it rewards patience for those who wish to invest in its evolution.
