Marchesi Antinori Tignanello Toscana IGT 1996 3L
An elegant, lithe, ballerina-like Tig bottling, the 1996 still dances with surprising grace. Lots of tertiary notes — forest floor, worn saddle leather, black tea, and touches of soy, truffle, and game — frame this wine’s delicate berry fruits. Silky tannins glide on the ethereal palate as subtle minerality and gentle acidity propel this wine’s lingering finish. The 1996 Tig is a triumph for longevity in Super Tuscans, especially from large formats.
