Tignanello is one of the great red wines of the Marchesi Antinori, born in the 70s after a long process of wine experimentation. The idea at the origin of its birth was to obtain grapes with greater concentration and soft tannins, intervening on the plant density and pruning, from which a Sangiovese was born for the first time aged in barrique, then assembled to non-traditional varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Forerunner of the great Tuscan reds, the Supertuscan, born from the marriage of native and international vines, Tignanello is one of those great wines that made the history of Italian wine making, becoming a legend.

Tignanello wine comes from the renowned vineyards of the estate, where the sixteenth-century patronal villa is located, located between the valleys of Greve and Pesa, in the heart of the Chianti Classico, exactly between the small villages of Montefiridolfi and Santa Maria a Macerata, 30 kilometers away. south of Florence. It is a unique expression with a well-defined personality, born from the soft and not very traumatic pressing of the grapes, from alcoholic fermentation in truncated conical steel tanks and, finally, from malolactic fermentation in barrique. Thus was born the first Sangiovese to be aged in barrique, as well as the first red blended with non-local varieties and among the first red wines in Chianti not to include blends with white grapes.
