Antinori Tenuta Tignanello

Antinori Tenuta Tignanello is a prestigious wine estate located in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region. The estate is renowned for producing some of Italy's most celebrated wines, particularly its flagship wine, Tignanello. The Antinori family, with a winemaking history dating back over 600 years, owns and operates the estate, bringing centuries of expertise to their viticultural practices.

Winemaking with history

The Tignanello estate covers 319 hectares, with 130 hectares dedicated to vineyards. The unique terroir of the area, characterized by limestone-rich soils and an ideal microclimate, is perfect for cultivating Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. Tignanello was revolutionary when it was first produced in the 1970s, as it was one of the first Italian red wines to be aged in small oak barrels, breaking away from traditional Chianti winemaking practices.

This innovation led to the creation of the Super Tuscan category, wines that didn't conform to traditional DOC or DOCG regulations but achieved international acclaim for their quality. Tignanello is composed mainly of Sangiovese, with smaller amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, creating a rich, complex wine with a deep ruby color and flavors of red fruit, spice, and herbs.

The estate also produces another esteemed wine, Solaia, made primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Solaia and Tignanello have both received numerous accolades and high ratings from wine critics worldwide, solidifying the estate's reputation for excellence. Sustainable farming practices are integral to Tenuta Tignanello, with a focus on preserving the environment and maintaining the health of the vineyards for future generations.
