Tenuta Tignanello is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, on the gently sloping hills between the Greve and Pesa Valleys, just 19 miles south of Florence. This is the home of Solaia and Tignanello, two iconic wines of Antinori, praised by the international press as being “among the most influential wines in the Italian history of winegrowing.” Solaia, which means the ‘sunny one’ in Italian, is ruby red color, and distinguishes itself with aromatic notes of ripe dark fruit fused with hints of aromatic herbs and mint; notes of chocolate alternate with spicy suggestions of white pepper. The palate of this red wine is rich with silky tannins. The finish is persistent and indicates optimal aging potential. For more than 630 years − spanning 26 generations − the Antinori family has produced exceptional wines that celebrate its Tuscan and Umbrian roots. Antinori wines proudly honor Italian winemaking traditions, but also reflect the family’s relentless push to innovate and experiment. No other family of winemakers has achieved such consistent excellence.
