Tenuta Tignanello Antinori (Tuscany)
Product not available in United States
The Tenuta Tignanello Antinori family has been making wine for over six centuries. Their Tenuta Tignanello estate lies in the centre of the Chianti Classico zone, between the rivers Greve and Pesa. Tenuta Tignanello Antinori's Tignanello Toscana 2016 is produced using only grapes sourced from the Tignanello vineyard. This wine is only bottled in favourable vintages and so is not available every year.
The Tignanello Toscana 2016 began with fermentation in conical tanks where the must and the skins were macerated together to achieve the fresh aroma, colour extraction, and the desired level of tannins. The wine was transferred to small oak barrels for malolactic fermentation before being left to age for a minimum of two years in French and Hungarian oak barrels, both new and second-use. Then a final blend was completed before bottling, where it remained in bottle for twelve months before being released to the public.
A blend of Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Tignanello was one of the first red wines in the region to not use white grapes. This harmonious red wine is intense and balanced. It is full of flavour to match up with its bright ruby colouring. Try it with beef, lamb, or duck for a perfect marriage to such a savoury dish.
