Tignanello

Tignanello, like Sassicaia, holds a special place in the history of Italian wine. First made in 1970, Tig was a groundbreaking blend of the local Sangiovese with international Cabernet Sauvignon. In breaking regulations, owners the ancient house of Antinori transformed attitudes about Italian wine and they continued to be a key innovator pushing quality. Tignanello and its stablemate Solaia are counterparts: made by star winemaker Renzo Cotarella from the same hillside terroir, though Tig is 80-85% Sangiovese blended with Cabernets Sauvignons and Franc, while Solaia is 75% Cab Sauvignon, and the rest Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Followed by serious collectors and investors, sommeliers and celebrities alike (‘The Tig’ inspired by Tignanello was the name of the lifestyle blog run by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex before her marriage), Tignanello’s star continues to rise.
