About this wine
When Tignanello debuted with the 1971 vintage, it was recognized immediately as a game changer for Tuscany. Piero Antinori’s decision to use Bordeaux-inspired winemaking techniques and eliminate white grapes from the blend was revolutionary. When he added Cabernet Sauvignon to his indigenous Sangiovese beginning with the 1975 vintage, he upended traditional ideas about the wines of Italy’s Chianti region, and the wine was a primary impetus for the emergence of the super Tuscan category. Tignanello is a cornerstone of Piero Antinori’s 50-plus year legacy at the helm of the Antinori juggernaut
