Robert Parker The Wine Advocate
"The 2008 Tignanello is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. The 2008 isn't a huge or obvious Tignanello, rather it is a wine that impresses for its sublime elegance and precision. Understated layers of fruit caress the palate like cashmere in this impeccable, soft wine. There is not a hard edge to be found. Black cherries, tobacco, smoke and licorice are some of the notes that come through on the finish. The flavor profile is decidedly on the dark side, but the wine's structure is medium in body and intensity. In 2008 the Tignanello has more energy, focus and length than the Solaia. It is a fabulous achievement! The 2008 Tignanello is 80% Sangiovese aged in 300liter French oak barrels (1/3rd new), 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, both aged in 100% new 225liter French oak barriques. Anticipated maturity: 20142024."

Wine Spectator
"A sleek, perfumed red, showing floral, black currant and cherry flavors, with a hint of vanilla. The oak is wellintegrated, with a fresh finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2014 through 2024. 8,000 cases imported. Intense ruby red color. Notes of ripe, red fruit and jam give way to spice, vanilla and licorice. Wellmanaged tannind and balanced acidity provide suppleness and lead to a long, lingering finish."
