In that year, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entr part of Art Fiorentina Vinattieri. Since then, the management is passed down through 26 generations. There the result of innovative and courageous decisions. While there, we always brought respect for tradition and territory. Today the company direct from 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 made Antinori Marchesi s that you 'claims as one of the leading Italian wine producers. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea you want to implement 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. The Marchesi Antinori performs continuous experiments in the vineyards and cellars, with selections of clones of native and international grapes, types of crops, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, different types of timber size and age of the barrels , and varying the length of refining in the bottle. Vinification The Tignanello vineyard one of the last to be harvested. Only painstakingly selected grapes are used in this eponymous wine. The Cabernets were harvested from early October; the Sangiovese a week later. The grapes are de-stemmed and pressed in a soft and fermented separately using methods that guarantee a very gentle processing technique. The maceration took place in wooden vats from 50hl (where, periodically, cap submersion in order to obtain a better extraction of color, complexity of PI and soft tannins). During this period (15 days for the Sangiovese, and 20 days and beyond for Cabernet), the wine has also completed its alcoholic fermentation at a temperature not exceeding 30 C. The Tignanello was then transferred into new barrels and one year of et (Alliers Tron aIS) where, by the end of the year, he completed malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked for the assembly of the two varieties and brought in barriques where it remained for ca. 14 months. After which it bottled. He was then aged in the bottle for at least 12 months before release. Tasting notes Intense ruby ​​red color, aromas are characterized by a strong varietal expressiveness, with large red fruit, raspberry and licorice. On the palate the wine, although still very young, balanced, fine, with smooth tannins, good acidity, sapidit and mineral notes that give it a long, lingering finish.

Antinori Tignanello Magnum 2012

The Tenuta Tignanello is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico area. The vineyards include two exceptional Cru: Tignanello and Solaia. Tignanello the first Sangiovese wine that was aged in oak barrels. These modern wine was at the same time as one of the first assembled with use of non Italian grapes. A delightful nose of dark ripe fruit. On the palate velvety tannins, aromas of red fruits followed by toasted and vanilla aromas. Still young in the mouth but still very inviting to drink now.

Dull red. It smells of roasting. I found no special taste.
 A network that looks good with moussaka.
 The best thing about this wine, the company.

Antinori Tignanello Magnum 2012

Very intense ruby red colour. Nicely expressed varietal aromas with hints of black berry fruit. The palate is weighty, dense and vibrant with complex structure thanks to support of the acidity. Long and lingering with hints of chocolate, coffee and marmalade in the aftertaste. The beautifully handled tannin from the wine and wood blend making Tignanello a very complex, stylish and sophisticated wine.

I usually buy this red Tenuta Tignanello Antinori online, at Uvinum.
A wine with a high layer and a nice cherry colour. Aromas of leather and tobacco pipe. It tasted like wood.
