96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Exhibiting black currant, black cherry and cedar notes, this is reminiscent of the 1990, except younger and with greater density. Very fresh, this echoes the fruit, woodsy and spice elements on the long aftertaste. (BS, Web-2020) Inner quote mark

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark During the recorking ceremony for the 1971 Tignanello, I had the opportunity to taste four editions of the wine spanning the four decades of its production. The 1997 Tignanello was by far the most enjoyable of these wines. It is experiencing a perfect moment in its drinking window. Looking through The Wine Advocate archive, I see the suggestion of brett in a past review. I found absolutely no imperfections in this wine. Instead, the bouquet is generous and opulent with dark berry, spice, licorice and leather. Much of the Tignanello vineyards were replanted in the 1990s so I expect that the fruit came from younger vines. The finish is silky and long in persistency. (ML) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark At first, the 1997 Tignanello has elements of an aged Left Bank Bordeaux, with dark fruit and leafy cedar notes. As it sits in the glass sweeter herbs, dried red berries and leather emerge. There is still plenty to chew on, although the tannins have softened and shed their firmness. While this is completely approachable and ready now, it possesses enough concentration and structure to hold up for another five years or so. Drinking Window 2018-2024. (MM) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Very full ruby-garnet, dark and deep. Ample in aroma, with sweet cassis fruit, light accents of sage and rosemary, chocolate and roasted coffee from the oak, and some alcoholic warmth. Dense, round and velvety on the palate, with expanding flavors. Finishes with important tannic strength and impressive weight and force. The fusion of the sangiovese and cabernet components of this wine is more accomplished than in past vintages. (DT) Inner quote mark (7/2000)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Reticent at first, the elements show their complexity and depth with time. Full and very dark, this offers plenty of black cherry and cedar aromas and flavors offset by impressive licorice and Mouton-like pencil-lead notes. Smooth on the palate, showing great balance and integration, the ripe fruit here sings through the long finish with its soft tannins, good grip and tobacco-nut-mineral-dust accents. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (9/2001)
