Tignanello Antinori Toscana 2015

Ll Carocci, in the historic-artistic guide of the town of San Casciano Val di Pesa, 1892, describes the location Tignanello, farm and extensive vineyards, as one of the highest points and picturesque of the whole territory of the municipality said. On top of the hill, thanks to a panoramic position and the generosity of the plants and is a small cluster of houses, some of which the origin is very old. Tenuta Tignanello is located between the valleys of Greve and Pesa, in the heart of Chianti Classico, between the small towns of Montefiridolfi and Santa Maria in Macerata, 30 km south of Florence. In these 127 hectares of vineyards, the Antinori family has more than elsewhere esperesso its production philosophy: to reconcile tradition and modernity creating wines authentically tied to their land of origin. Solaia and Tignanello, the two icon wines of the estate, have been defined by the international press of the most influential wine in Italian winemaking and a constant symbol for the Antinori family of a never-ending challenge, fueled by pure passion. Vignetoigneti are divided into small plots, including two gems: the 57 hectares of vineyard Tignanello and Solaia the adjoining 20 hectares of vineyard. The soils of the estate, of Pliocene origin, tend to lean, low-water and supplied with rich skeleton of limestone and marl, constitute a unique specificity, which, together with the particular position of the vineyards, placed at a height of 350-400 m s . the. m. , They have resulted in products with a strong character and elegance accentuated: the grapes enjoy warm days and cool nights during the growing season. The grapes planted at Tignanello include the native Sangiovese variety and non-traditional Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. There is also a small amount of white grapes, Malvasia and Trebbiano, which are used for the production of Vin Santo. Other non-traditional grapes at Tignanello include small amounts of Syrah and Merlot, which were planted for the purpose of experimentation in the seventies. The property includes 37 hectares of olive groves for the production of small amounts of extra virgin oil. CantinaLa tailoring guide also the wine aspect: Tignanello and Solaia, in fact, have the cellars dedicated aging. The winery, which was completely renovated in 2008, is located in the old building adjacent to the Villa and in the basement there are the cellars of aging in barrels. The wine cellars are designed to allow for attention to detail and nuances of the determinants. This is possible thanks to the equipment, tools, modern materials and certainly the human sensitivity. It was created a reception area destined only to the Solaia grapes: after the stripping is done on a manual sorting belt, grain by grain; the grapes are then loaded on the tank, on top of which there is a crushing unit, to which the grapes are pressed and transferred in the same tanks. small frusto-conical tanks were chosen (from 60 Hl.) because they allow to do the punching without heavy intervention on the cap of marc and therefore a particularly delicate workmanship. After fermentation, the wine is transferred directly to the underground cellars of aging to fall, taking advantage of the gravity. The aging cellar where lie the cross vaults of Solaia barrels, classic stone ceiling, was born with the original structure of the Villa, dating back to the sixteenth century; The wine cellar dedicated to Tignanello is expanded later, realized and expressly dedicated to his wooden afinamento.

Tignanello 2013
- An intense ruby red in colour with purple highlights, the 2013 Tignanello shows a nose of great red fruit intensity along with highly pleasurable notes of vanilla, chocolate, and leather from the well balanced contribution and fusion of the aromas of the oak.
- The spicy and balsamic sensations which give additional complexity are also quite important. The wine is ample and enveloping on the palate with supple tannins and a savoury freshness which fully respects the character and personality of the Sangiovese grape.
- The balance between acidity and tannins is excellent, and the finish and aftertaste are of a lovely length and persistence.

Tignanello 2012
- The 2012 Tignanello is an intense ruby red in colour with purple highlights. The wine is potent and complex on the nose with spicy notes which mingle with aromas of red fruit, smoke, and balsamic sensations; cherries, plums, liquorice, and rosemary are additionally felt. The flavors are mouth- filling and elegant with much volume and an excellent balance in the texture, and the oak is perfectly fused in the spicy and fruity finish and aftertaste.
- 80% Sangiovese, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
