Antinori Tignanello 2017

During fermentation in truncated conical tanks, the must was macerated with the skins giving particularattention to
preserving the freshness of itsaromas, the extraction of color,and encouraging desirable tannins thatare supple
and elegant. Racking was performed after rigorous dailysampling and tasting. Once separated from the skins, the
wine was transferred into small oak barrels where malolactic fermentation took place,accentuating the finesse and
complexity of the aromas. The wine was left to age forapproximately 14 to 16 months in French and Hungarian
oak barrels, in a combination of new and second fill barrels. Each lotand each grape variety was fermented and aged
in barrels separately with the final blend taking place justafew months before bottling. Tignanello,a blend of
Sangiovese with asmall percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, underwentan additional 12
months in the bottle before being released.
Historical Data
Tignanello is produced exclusivelyfrom the vineyard of the same name,a parcel of some 140 acres (57 hectares)
with limestone-rich soilsand asouthwestern exposure at 1150-1325 feets (350-400 meters)above sealevelat the
Tignanello estate. It was the first Sangiovese wine to be aged in small oak barrels, the first modern red wine to use
such non-traditionalvarietiesas Cabernet in the blend,and among the first red wines from the Chianti Classico area
to be produced without white grapes. The wine, originally called "Chianti Classico Riserva Vigneto Tignanello" (a
Chianti Classico Riservafrom the Tignanello vineyard), was produced for the first time from asingle vineyard
parcel in 1970, when the blend contained 20% of Canaiolo and 5% of Trebbiano and Malvasia, both white grapes,
and the wine aged in small oak barrels. In 1971 it became a Tuscan red table wine rather than a Chianti Classico,
and was called Tignanello. In the 1975 vintage the percentage of white grapes was definitively eliminated from the
blend. Ever since 1982, the blend has been the one currently used. Tignanello is bottled onlyin favorable vintages,
and was not produced in 1972, 1973,1974, 1976, 1984, 1992,and 2002.
