Nestled between the Greve and Pesa river valleys, Tenuta Tignanello extends over 319 hectares of Chianti countryside, almost half of which is dedicated to vines. The Antinori family acquired the estate in the 1800s, however the history of this estate dates back much further to 1346 and its original owners, the noble Buondelmonti family. Winemaking equally has a longstanding history in this place, with the Tignanello vineyards long being hailed as some of the highest and most picturesque in the area. The vines are planted on marine marlstone that comes from the Pliocene period and are equally as rich in limestone and schist. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 1148-1312 feet above sea level which, along with the fluctuation between the hot daytime temperatures and cooler evenings, contribute to the unique characteristics of the grapes. As well as the indigenous Sangiovese grape, Tenuta Tignanello also grow varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malvasia and Trebbiano. Tignanello is the Antinori family’s flagship wine and is vinified and aged separately in its own cellar from the other wines Antinori produce from this site. As well has having an extremely strong on-trade presence (restaurants and hotels), Tignanello is a favourite amongst wine collectors and investors, offering an excellent alternative to Bordeaux at a fraction of the price of First Growths.
