Tignanello is the “Super Tuscan” label produced by celebrated Italian wine producer Antinori. The Antinori family has produced wine in Tuscany for well over 600 years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori joined the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. The winery has managed to stay in the family over the centuries, now under the direction of Marchese Piero Antinori, with help from his daughters Albiera, Allegra and Alessia. 
 
Tignanello has been produced since the early 1970s in the vineyard of the same name, and is credited with being among the very first Super Tuscans. It is a blend of primarily Sangiovese with smaller percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This makes it closer to a traditional Tuscan wine, the inverse of most Super Tuscans which balance more heavily on the Bordeaux grapes. It was one of the first wines in the region to be aged in small oak barrels to impart richer flavors.

  • Fox - that's about it. At BevMo with the great discount you only pay $18 for a $15 wine. It's a brilliant marketing strategy!BTW, did you notice that Wilfred Wong left? He's going to work for Wine.com now and it seems he'll be doing things along the lines of what GregDP is doing here at Snooth.I would drink that Antinori but I'm not going to pay... Read More

  • Holy crap!  I checked this out here and the 2010 is $100.  Geeze...I like Italian, but I can now say I can think of other stuff I'd buy first.  I've been perusing WineBid.com and looking for some biggies, like Ridge Monte Bello, and G. Conterno Cascina Francia Barolo 2004. Read More

  • Hey, GdP, I offered to trade some of our warm weather for a little of NY's water, but you balked.  Now we're getting two soakers in a row, so our price has gone up.I'd consider flying down for a Tig-fest in April if I'm not already somewhere else.  I'm probably going to LA in May (the 8th to 10th) but I will have the kids with me.

  • After 1990 or so, not sure when really but by 1996 the wine was less interesting. Well made, but just a little anonymous. Read More

  • Makes sense GdP...I liked the wine but could see how it's been a little "corporatized". When would you say the quality went down? I suppose I'll have to read more about the history. Anyway, I'm glad to finally get around to this after seeing the label in wi e shops all these years. I see Rare Wine still has a magnum of the '79 in stock. The '78 ... Read More
