About Antinori Tenuta Tignanello
The Antinori Tenuta Tignanello winery is a beacon of classical winemaking, nestled in the heart of Tuscany's magnificent rolling vineyards, and prides itself on producing some of Italy's most revered wines. This distinguished winery pioneered the "Super Tuscan" movement: an innovative approach to viniculture that marries traditional Italian grape varieties with international essentials, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
The Antinori family, who have been making exquisite wines since 1385, now head this prestigious winery. Over the generations, their profound knowledge of viticulture and passionate commitment to quality have been passed down, cementing Antinori Tenuta Tignanello's reputation for excellence.
The winery's flagship wine, Tignanello, is a beautiful embodiment of the Antinori family's groundbreaking spirit. First produced in 1971, this remarkable blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc was among the first red wines in Chianti to be produced without white grape varieties. The result is nothing short of spectacular – a wine of exceptional richness and nuance that consistently scores highly among critics.
Yet Tignanello is not alone in its excellence. The Antinori Tenuta Tignanello winery also produces a splendid Chianti Classico Riserva – a deftly blended wine that harkens back to the region’s traditional winemaking legacy.
