Tignanello 1971 Tuscany
Tignanello is a "Super-Tuscan" by nature of being made from grape varieties not native to Tuscany, and claims to be the first Sangiovese wine matured in oak barriques.
These bottles are from the 1971 vintage - only the second release of Tignanello, and the first vintage in which producer Antinori Marchesi moved away from the strict Chianti Classico rules - becoming instead a declassified Vino Da Tavola Della Toscano ("Red Table Wine From Tuscany").
The wine is a blend of Sangiovese, Cannaiolo and Malvasia; matured in small oak barrels.
This bottle is in good condition: minor cosmetic damage to label; seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
Removed from a purpose-built, temperature and humidity controlled wine cellar.
We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.
Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit or otherwise spoilage of contents.
