price doesn't reflect quality or taste.....theres bottles for 30 bucks that taste pretty damn good depending on what you pair it with.

my favorite is Geo (syrah) Elqui Valley, Chile.

Next time STFFs....theres a thread 1/2 way down the page.

Agreed.

It all comes down to your friends taste. Is there a specific type your friend likes? Personally i like Merlot's and Malbec's.

$100 red wine safe bet, considered an Italian blue chip

http://www.marquis-wines.com/Antinor...ml_p_9645.html

Antinori Tignanello 750ml
Year: 2006

Flavour: Full Bodied Red
Region: Italy
Variety: Sangiovese
$96.60



Wine Spectator Rating 93/100:

ANTINORI
Toscana Tignanello 2006
Score: 93
Release Price: $95
Country: Italy
Region: Tuscany
Issue: Oct 31, 2009

Intense aromas of ripe blackberry and flowers, with rosemary and coffee hints. Full-bodied, with chewy, polished tannins. Excellent fruit concentration and a flavorful aftertaste. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2012. 29,165 cases made. –JS

Wine Advocate 92/100:

2006 P Antinori Tignanello
P Antinori
A Proprietary Blend Dry Red Table wine from
Tuscany, Italy
Source Reviewer Rating Maturity Current (Release) Cost
Wine Advocate # 184
Aug 2009 Antonio Galloni 92 Drink: 2014 - 2024 $63-$120 (99)

The 2006 Tignanello is especially opulent in this vintage. Masses of dark red fruit, scorched earth and sweet oak emerge as this richly-textured Tignanello flows from the glass. The wine possesses superb density; all it needs is another few years to come together. Today it is remarkably vibrant and primary. Tignanello is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

From top to bottom this is a beautiful set of wines from Antinori. The estate’s 2006 Guado al Tasso, Tignanello and Solaia are all beautiful, even if they don’t appear to possess the elegance of the superb 2004s.
