The Antinori family has been committed to the art of winemaking for over six centuries since 1385 when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member, of the “Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri”, the Florentine Winemakers’ Guild. All throughout its history, twenty-six generations long, the Antinori family has managed the business directly making innovative and sometimes bold decisions while upholding the utmost respect for traditions and the environment.
Tignanello is produced exclusively from the vineyard of the same name, a parcel of some 57 hectares with limestone-rich soils and a southwestern exposure at 350-400 meters above sea level at Antinori’s Tignanello estate.
The climate of the 2015 growing season, particularly that of the summer months, forced an intense and rigorous selection of the grapes both in the vineyard and in the cellar. This careful selection aided in raising the quality level of the grapes utilized for the Tignanello.
