Description

Balanced, lively and silky, a fine Italian wine by Antinori

The estate

An iconic reference point for great Tuscan wines, in Italy and around the world, the Antinori family estate Tenuta Tignanello is located in the historic heart of the Chianti Classico area. Surrounded by an enchanting landscape, the estate is located in the heart of the hills between the Greve and Pesa rivers. Tenuta Tignanello is internationally renowned for its two iconic wines: Tignanello and Solaia. These two wines are considered to be among the most influential Tuscan wines in the history of Italian viticulture.

The vineyard

The Tenuta Tignanello estate spreads over 319 hectares, 130 of which are dedicated to wine production. The vines are planted on marl soils, dating back to the Pliocene era, rich in limestone and schist. The area’s Mediterranean climate is marked by significant temperature variations between night and day during the growth cycle of the vines. The Tenuta Tignanello vineyard’s location and terroir are ideal for the cultivation of the Sangiovese grape. Other varieties are present such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

The vintage

The 2019 vintage in Chianti Classico is characterised by normal weather conditions. The winter is rather cold and the first half of spring is also cool and rainy, especially in April and May. On the other hand, the summer is warm, with no major heat waves, and slightly above-average rainfall. The ideal weather conditions of August continued throughout September and October. Harvesting began in the second half of September with the Sangiovese grapes and ended in early October with the other varieties.

Winemaking and ageing

The grapes were destemmed, gently crushed and transferred to vats. Alcoholic fermentation lasted about a week. Skin maceration with gentle pumping over and delestage to ensure optimal extraction while preserving the elegance and suppleness of the tannins. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation was completed at the end of the year. Following the blend, the juices were transferred to French and Hungarian oak barrels for approximately one year. Finally, the wine was aged for a further year in the bottle before being released onto the market.

Blend

Sangiovese (100%).
