You will like to know that...

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.

The family - Marchesi Antinori
The Antinori family has been active in wine production since 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Florentine art of Vinattieri.

Since then, the management has been passed down through 26 generations. This is the result, of course, innovative and courageous decisions.

Nevertheless, it has always had respect for tradition and territory.

Today the company is led by Albiera Antinori, with the two sisters Allegra and Alessia, involved in business activities.

The Marchese Piero Antinori is currently the Honorary President of the company.

Tradition, passion and instinct have led the Antinori Marchesi 'claims as one of the leading Italian wine producers.

Every vintage, every terroir, every idea you want to put in place is a new beginning.

The Marchese Piero argues that ancient roots play an important role in our philosophy, but they have never held back our innovative spirit.

At the estates of Tuscany and Umbria, and is part of the family, they were added over time investments in other areas suitable for the production of quality wines in Italy and abroad.
Year 2016
After an autumn and a generally mild winter and little rainfall, the spring of 2016 began in Chianti Classico full of good weather, favoring an early budding of about 10 days compared to the historical average.

From the month of May and during the first half of June were recorded average rainfall and cool temperatures that do not, however, affected the decisive stages of flowering and fruit set.

The summer until the end of August was generally warm, dry and free of heat peaks: optimum conditions to keep a good balance between vegetation and production and ensure peak growth of the grapes.

The months of the collection were regular, with some rainfalls alternating with long periods of sunshine and ventilation, which allowed an ideal maturation process for the three varieties in the Tignanello vineyard.

The Sangiovese was harvested as of September 23, Cabernet Franc between late September and early October, while the Cabernet Sauvignon 3 to 10 October.

Deep ruby ​​color
Aromas with a strong varietal expression, with large red fruit, raspberry and licorice.

On the palate the wine is balanced, fine, with smooth tannins, good acidity, flavor and mineral notes that give it a final long and persistent.

Reviews about Tignanello Antinori Toscana 2013



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.

Antinori Tignanello Toscana 2012
Just wonderful.


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.
