TIgnanello Wisdom

To age or not to age? That is a question most people don't ask themselves when it comes to fine red wine--common knowledge encourages age, particularly for wines included Cabernet Sauvignon. However, director of winemaking of the famed Super Tuscan Tignanello Alessia Antinori thinks it is the Cabernet addition that allows the family's wine, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, to be enjoyed while youthful. Sangiovese can have tannins that demand years in the cellar, but a little bit of Cab in the mix rounds the edges. You can drink Tignanello now...and later too!
