Italian wine

Tignanello, Antinori, 2019



Tignanello 2019 from Antinori. Regarded as an innovative pioneer of modern Italian top wines. We were fortunate to tour Tuscany and Umbria wineries for our honeymoon and experience some amazing wines, Tignanello has a special place in the shop.
The Tenuta Tignanello estate is in the heart of Chianti Classico, in the gently rolling hillsides between the Greve and Pesa river valleys. It extends over an area of 319 hectares (788 acres), of which about 130 (321 acres) are dedicated to vines. Two of the estate’s prized vineyards are on the same hillside, Tignanello and Solaia, on soils that originated from marine marlstone from the Pliocene period rich in limestone and schist. The vines enjoy hot temperatures during the day and cooler evenings throughout the growing season. The estate’s two signature wines, Solaia and Tignanello, are produced from these vineyards and have been defined by the international press as “among the most influential wines in the history of Italian viticulture”. According to Marchesi Antinori, Solaia and Tignanello are an ongoing challenge and a never-ending passion. The Tignanello estate has vineyards of indigenous Sangiovese grapes as well as some other untraditional varieties such as Cabernet Franc.

Production area

Chianti, Toscana IGT

Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc


A deep ruby-red colour. Its nose offers exceptional complexity with notes of red fruits, strawberries and pomegranate that give rise to delicate aromas of apricots and peaches in syrup accompanied by elegant sensations of vanilla, dried flowers, chocolate, and pleasantly spicy sensations of nutmeg. Its bouquet is completed with notes of coffee, caramel, and aromatic Mediterranean herbs. A graceful and mouth-filling palate presents silky, vibrant tannins and imparts liveliness, sapidity and a lengthy flavour profile. The aftertaste is characterized by notes of roasted coffee and bitter chocolate.

Food Pairings
Perfect with roasted meat, steaks, burgers and aged or blue cheeses. This is a big wine.
