The Antinori family has been making wine since 1385, when Giovanni di Piero Antinori became a member of the Florentine Winemakers’ Guild. Six centuries and 26 generations later, this impressive lineage has been channeled into a cutting edge winery in the Tuscan heartland that celebrates Marchesi Antinori’s heritage and expertise, whilst setting the standard for modern winemaking.

Tasting Notes

94 Points Antonio Galloni
The estate’s 1999 Tignanello is a wine in which the Sangiovese plays a leading role. Classic notes of tobacco, dried cherries, spices, leather and underbrush all emerge from this sweet, layered offering. This richly textured generous Tignanello has put on significant weight in bottle and shows remarkable overall balance. In 1999 Tignanello comes across as more complete than Solaia.

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Pale garnet colour with a touch of brick. The nose is a little closed and restrained yet with some coaxing opens out into an amazing array of dark cherry, dried cranberry, forest floor and tobacco aromas with an exotic sprinkling of Chinese five spice.The palate fills the entire mouth with ripe, concentrated fruit. Perfectly balanced with high acidity and a medium+ level of fine tannins. Very long finish. Still youthful
