Description:
Vineyard Tenuta Tignanello is situated between the Greve and Pesa valleys in the heart of Chianti Classico. Of the 147 hectares of vineyards, forty-seven hectares of ideal marl and limestone soil are used for Tignanello itself. White stones have recently been laid under the rows, reflecting light back to the vines and improving the maturation of the grapes.

Winery For all three varieties, fermentation took place at 27-31°C. After devatting, the lots were transferred to new oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine was then blended and aged for twelve months in barriques, racked and then tasted barrel by barrel before bottling. After another year ageing in the bottles, the wine was released.

Taste A concentrated Tignanello with ripe red fruit and spice aromas, as well as vanilla and toasty notes from the oak. The palate, while still youthful, is powerful and complex, expressing a great sense of place as well as the ideal weather conditions leading up to the harvest.

Press "The 2008 Tignanello is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. It isn't a huge or obvious Tignanello, rather a wine that impresses for its sublime elegance and precision. Understated layers of fruit caress the palate like cashmere in this impeccable, soft wine. Black cherries, tobacco, smoke and licorice. The flavour profile is decidedly on the dark side, but the wine's structure is medium in body and intensity. It is a fabulous achievement!" - 94 points, The Wine Advocate, August 2011

Producer Information

The Antinori family have been producing wine in Tuscany for six centuries, and exporting it for four. The purchase of the TIgnanello estate in 1900 marked the beginning of a remarkable period of expansion which shows no signs of abating. Through judicious acquisition of vineyards and an uncanny knack for developing iconic wines, Antinori has become Tuscany's - arguably Italy's pre-eminent wine producer, with an important presence in Piedmont, Lombardy, Umbria and Puglia.
