(Only 12 bottles Available)

Antinori’s Tignanello, a wine that defined an era and a region, continues to be innovative and remain relevant and exciting. It was a game-changer for Tuscany in the 1970s and a catalyst for the renaissance of Italian wines in general, and since then Tignanello hasn’t missed a beat. Marchesi Antinori CEO Renzo Cotarella interprets each vintage to gain greater understanding of the Tignanello vineyard. In 2019, Cotarella attributed the freshness and finesse of Tignanello to adequate rainfall from May to September. In recent vintages, he has fine-tuned the use of oak barrels, while the blending is done after the malolactic fermentation for a better integration of the different grapes.

Violets and lavender with dark fruit and hints of dark chocolate. Sophisticated nose. Medium-bodied with fine tannin structure that gives this finesse and beauty. It’s very long and goes on for minutes. Precision. 68% sangiovese with the rest in cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon. Rating: 97 Points; James Suckling

Producers notes

History: Tignanello is produced exclusively from the vineyard of the same name, a parcel of some 120 acres (47 hectares) with limestone-rich soils and a southwestern exposure at 1150-1325 feet (350-400 meters) above sea level at the Tignanello estate.

It was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels, the first modern rd wine to use such non-traditional varieties as Cabernet in the blend, and among the first red wines from the Chianti Classico area to be produced without white grapes. The wine, originally called "Chianti Classico Riserva vigneto Tignanello" (a Chianti Classico Riserva from the Tignanello vineyard), was produced for the first time from a single vineyard parcel in 1970, when the blend contained 20% of Canaiolo and 5% of Trebbiano and Malvasia, both white grapes,and the wine aged in small oak barrels.

In 1971 it became a Tuscan white table wine rather than a Chianti Classico, and was called Tignanello; in the 1975 vintage when the white grapes were totally eliminated from the blend. Ever since 1982, the blend has been the one currently used. Tignanello is bottled only in favorable vintages, and was not produced in 1972, 1973,1974, 1976, 1984, 1992, and 2002.
