2016 Tignanello, Antinori, Tuscany 75cl
Truly an iconic wine, Tignanello's origins lie in a single vineyard Chianti Classico Riserva 'Vigneto Tignanello' made for the 1970 vintage. Even at this point it broke new ground by being the first Sangiovese aged in small oak barrels, and the die was cast from the 1971 vintage, when it became a Vino da Tavola della Toscana and was named Tignanello after the vineyard from where the fruit originates.
Over the following eleven years Tignanello gradually evolved into the wine we recognise today – a wine that no longer follows the rules laid down by Chianti Classico Disciplinare.
A blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc that is produced only in the finest vintages.
Ideal partner with red meat dishes and pastas with rich sauces.
