"The 2016 Tignanello is flat out stunning. Dark, dense and resonant, the 2016 is a wonderfully complete wine that will provide readers with decades of pure drinking pleasure. The 2016 is especially dark and brooding, and yet the tannins are incredibly polished to the point of being perceptible. In the glass, the 2016 is complete and regal, perhaps because of the super-classic blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in the wine's extraordinary balance and total sense of finesse. I don't think there is another wine anywhere in the world made entirely from estate fruit that can match Tignanello for quality, consistency and value within its peer group of top-flight reds."

Antinori, one of Italy's most renowned wine producers, has a rich history dating back over 600 years. The winery is owned and operated by the Antinori family, with Marchese Piero Antinori leading the business since 1966. Chief Winemaker Renzo Cotarella has been at the helm of winemaking since 1995, bringing with him over 40 years of experience.
Located in the heart of the Chianti Classico region, Antinori's vineyards benefit from the region's unique terroir, characterized by its hilly landscape and well-draining soils. The winery also owns estates across Tuscany and Umbria, each producing wines that reflect their distinct terroirs.
Antinori has received numerous awards and accolades over the years, including Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year award in 2011 for their Tignanello wine. The winery is also recognized for its sustainable winemaking practices, including the use of renewable energy sources and organic farming methods.
One interesting detail about Antinori is their extensive collection of aging wines, with some bottles dating back to the early 20th century. The winery also produces a wide range of wines, from classic Chianti to more experimental blends, and remains dedicated to pushing the boundaries of winemaking and producing some of the world's finest wines.
