He awarded it 98 points, making it his joint highest scored vintage and said it is ‘every bit as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel’. He further adds ‘the 2021 has all the pedigree to become a modern benchmark for Tignanello and Italian wine more broadly’.

Fair Value analysis

Today’s release is coming to the market below the equally high-scoring 2015 and 2016 vintages.

The 2018 may also present an attractive options to buyers. Although Galloni awarded the wine a lower score, it is available at an 8.5% discount to yesterday’s release.

As shown below, the 2016 has also seen a 92% price increase over the last five years. The 2014 and 2013 have also seen good returns over the last five years increasing by 94.4% and 97.2% respectively.
