This 47 hectare vineyard was acquired in 1900 and gives its name to Antinori's most famous wine. Since 1982, Tignanello has been made from 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The vineyard lies at 1150–1312 feet above sea level, within the Santa Cristina estate (also known as Tenuta Tignanello).
Aromatic and complex notes of wood typical to Sangiovese.
Tignanello has, thanks to sweet and soft tannins, a full-bodied and long lasting taste.
