2014 Antinori Marchese Riserva Tenuta Tignanello Magnum 1.5ltr.
Fruity and floral nose with additional notes of spices and toasted oak.
The winter of 2014 was characterized by mild weather with temperatures slightly above seasonal averages. This led to an early bud burst for the Sangiovese grapes and the other complementary varieties. Spring was also mild and dry, leading to a positive flowering and bud set.
The summer, a bit unstable in its weather, slowed the processes of color change and ripening, which came back into balance, however, during the first part of September thanks to days of warm and sunny weather. The harvest took place between mid-September and early October.
