97 points Wine Spectator, Collectible: "A big, lush style, this red delivers pure aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry, violet, flint, tobacco and baking spices. This is supple, yet backed by a firm, dense matrix of tannins, so all the components are there, but this needs time to integrate. Lovely sweet, ripe finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2040."
98 points from Vinous, Antonio Gallini: "The 2016 Tignanello is flat out stunning. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in the wine's extraordinary balance and total sense of finesse.I don't think there is another wine anywhere in the world made entirely from estate fruit that can match Tignanello for quality, consistency and value within its peer group of top-flight reds."

Baby Brunello alert! From the soon-to-be-legendary 2016 vintage, a stunning deal in Montalcino Sangiovese, from the same vineyards that produce Lisini's Brunello and Rosso. What it lacks in sophistication (hardly a thing) it more, way more, than makes up for in value. - Marcus
