From the 2011 vintage onwards, this wine is produced exclusively from specially selected grapes grown at Antinori’s Tenuta Tignanello estate. The grapes were picked from mid-September to early October.

After destemming, the berries were carefully selected on sorting tables. and gentle crushing, the must was fermented in stainless steel vats, with 9-10 days on skins post-ferment. Malolactic fermentation took place in French barriques, following which the wine was aged for twelve months in French and Hungarian oak barrels. The best barrels were then selected, blended, and bottled.

Antinori

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 as well as their Tuscan heartland.
