Tenuta Tignanello - ikonisk topejendom i Chianti Classico
Antinoris fantastiske ejendom, Tenuta Tignanello, befinder sig  i hjertet af Chianti Classico området, ca. 30 km syd for byen Firenze. Denne ejendoms 127 hektar vinmarker har mere end nogen anden af Antinoris ejendomme udtrykt familiens arbejde og filosofi om at forene udvikling og modernitet med tradition. Ejendommens topvine, Solaia og Tignanello, er af den internationale presse blevet udråbt "de mest indflydelsesrige vine i vindyrkningens historie Italien". Tenuta Tignanello ejendommen fungerer samtidig som "laboratorium" for Antinoris eksperimentelle arbejde, der sigter på at forbedre dyrknings- og vinifikations metoderne.

Tignanello - en af de mest indflydelsesrige vine i vindyrkningens historie Italien
Tignanello blev fremstillet første gang i 1971, hvor vinen skabte forargelse. Det var den første Sangiovese lagret i "barriques", frem for de traditionelle "Botti". Det var den første vin med "den forbudte" franske drue Cabernet i druesammensætningen, frem for de dengang lovmæssigt påkrævede grønne druer. Med Tignanello skabte Antinori, hvad der i dag anses for at være en af de mest indflydelsesrige vine i vindyrkningens historie Italien, og en af de første vine kendt som "supertoscanere".

Aristokratisk, rig og stringent topvin
Den fremstilles typisk af 80 % Sangiovese, 15 % Cabernet Sauvignon og 5 % Cabernet Franc. Lagringen varer mellem 16 og 18 måneder og finder sted på små fade af fransk og ungarsk eg. Tignanello fremstilles kun i de bedste årgange og imponerer altid med sin dybde, klasse, kompleksitet, og en balanceret og på en gang rig og stringent kraft, der munder ud i en lang og detaljeret finish. Serveres til de fineste retter med vildt, oksekød eller lam.

Climate
The climate of the 2015 vintage wasan extremelyregular one
and respected, in itsvarious phasesand seasons, the typical
weather of the Chianti Classico production zone. A cold and
relatively dry winter preceded aspring characterized by damp
weather in March and Apriland dry weather in Mayand June. In
this period, temperatures were regular, guaranteeing a perfect
growth ofvegetation and an excellent phase of flowering and
bud set for the grapes. The summer wasa warm one, with peak
temperatures in July, butalso with highly positive temperature
swings from daytime warmth to evening and nighttime coolness
which assured a constant growth of the grape bunches free of
stress. The month of August, warm as well, was characterized by
occasional rainfall which favored afine onset to the ripening of
the crop. The picking took place between mid-Septemberand
early October in a climate of dryand breezy weather.

Vinification
The 2015 vintage, regular in itsvarious phases, will be remembered for the harvesting of completelyripe and
healthy grapes thanks to the highlyfavorable weather during the entire growing season. Despite this fact, the level of
attention remained very high both in the vineyard during picking operationsand in the cellar when the crop arrived;
here the selection of the grapesand the first phases of their working gave an important impetus to afurther
optimization of quality. During the fermentation in conical fermentation tanks, the must was macerated on the
grape skins with extreme care and attention to the freshness of the aromas, the extraction of color,and a
management of the tanninsaimed at supplenessand elegance. The running of the wine off its skins took place only
after careful dailytastings. Once the wine was separated from its skins, it went into oak barrels fora malolactic
fermentation which further elevated the finesse and the complexity of the aromas. The aging process then began,
fourteen to sixteen months in French and Hungarian oak barrels, some new and othersalready used once
previously. The various lots, fermented and aged variety byvariety, were then blended togetherafew months before
being bottled. The wine, based principally on Sangiovese supplemented byasmall part of Cabernet Sauvignon and
Cabernet Franc, was given afurther twelve month period of bottle aging before commercial release.
Historical Data
Tignanello is produced exclusivelyfrom the vineyard of the same name,a parcel of some 140 acres (57 hectares)
with limestone-rich soilsand asouthwestern exposure at 1150-1325 feets (350-400 meters)above sealevelat the
Tignanello estate. It was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels, the first modern red wine to use
such non-traditionalvarietiesas Cabernet in the blend,and among the first red wines from the Chianti Classico area
to be produced without white grapes. The wine, originally called "Chianti Classico Riserva Vigneto Tignanello" (a
Chianti Classico Riservafrom the Tignanello vineyard), was produced for the first time from asingle vineyard
parcel in 1970, when the blend contained 20% of Canaiolo and 5% of Trebbiano and Malvasia, both white grapes,
and the wine aged in small oak barrels. In 1971 it became a Tuscan red table wine rather than a Chianti Classico,
and was called Tignanello. In the 1975 vintage the percentage of white grapes was definitively eliminated from the
blend. Ever since 1982, the blend has been the one currently used. Tignanello is bottled onlyin favorable vintages,
and was not produced in 1972, 1973,1974, 1976, 1984, 1992,and 2002.
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Tignanello isaveryintense rubyred in color. On the nose, the notes of ripe red fruit, together with
cassisand blackberries,are in perfect balance with the hints of chocolate and liquorice. The palate is rich,ample,
and vibrantand is endowed with livelyand silkytannins which give a great complexityand an important length to the
finish and aftertaste.
