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.

  • 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

  • Well played. Hell I'd go someplace warm just for dinner in order to escape this if I could. In fact flew to Tampa for dinner on Saturday. 24 hours on the ground but soaked up as much warmth as I could. Read More

  • Tignanello is a good story, and was once quite a good wine. I still have a few mags left from 78ish or 79. Back then it was a real standout, today not so much. Well made and enjoyable but certainly not a good value and a bit pedestrian. I wish I could join you guys for the Tig fest with them but that's not gonna happen in April. Though I will be...
