One of Italy's most famous and highly regarded wines, this is one of the original Super Tuscans and ranks alongside great Bordeaux in terms of both style and quality. Hugely in demand, this is a sensational wine.

In the vineyard

The wines was put into barriques (225 ltr oak barrels) where malolactic fermentation takes place by the end of the first year. The wines were then blended then left to age for a further 12 months in b arriques, where they were periodically racked and tasted, barrel by barrel, until the moment of bottling. After an additional year of bottle-ageing, the wine is released.

In the winery

All grapes are hand-picked from the Tignanello vineyard in the heart of Chianti Classico.The blend for this wine is 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc.

Press & Awards

  • Wine of the Week
    The 2008 Tignanello is unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage. The 2008 isn’t a huge or obvious Tignanello, rather it is a wine that impresses for its sublime elegance and precision. Understated layers of fruit caress the palate like cashmere in this impeccable, soft wine. There is not a har d edge to be found. Black cherries, tobacco, smoke and licorice are some of the notes that come through on the finish. The flavor profile is decidedly on the dark side, but the wine’s structure is medium in body and intensity. In 2008 the Tignanello has more energy, focus and length than the Solaia. It is a fabulous achievement! 95 Points AG
