Antinori's 1990 Tignanello (a blend of primarily Sangiovese with some Cabernet Sauvignon) is the best example I have tasted of this wine since the marvelously opulent, rich 1985. Rich yet supple and expansive enough to be consumed with great pleasure, it offers a dark ruby/purple color, and a big, smoky, earthy nose of nearly over-ripe cherry and currant-like fruit. Full-bodied, with exceptional concentration and purity, this distinctive, spicy wine should drink well for 10-15 years. ... WS 92 (2/1995): Possibly the greatest Tignanello ever. Wonderfully aromatic, showing plum, coffee, leather, smoke and vanilla. It is ripe and subtle, full-bodied and richly tannic. Has a long, long finish. Try after 1997. 23,000 cases made. ... Loads of blackberry, coffee and olive aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, subtle yet rich finish. A fine Tignanello that shows reserve and class. Best after 2007. 27,500 cases made. –JS WS
