About Marchese Antinori Tenuta Tignanello

The Antinori family’s Tenuta Tignanello is a gently hilly property located between that the family has owned since the 1800s. This... 321-acre Tuscan estate gets its name — Tignanello — from its most famous vineyard, but its vines grow the grapes for multiple wines. When Piero Antinori was searching to add his own voice to the Super-Tuscan revolution in the late 1960s, he turned to Giacomo Tachis, the consulting winemaker behind Sangiovese, as well as Ornellaia. Piero wanted to make wines that reflected his family’s Tuscan heritage, and in 1971, Tignanello, a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Cabernet Franc, was born. Sporting marly, limestone-rich soils that show remnants of the Pliocene Period when the region was covered in an ocean, Tenuta Tignanello enjoys sunny days, cool nights, and a gentle breeze, ideal conditions for wines that sing with a true Tuscan voice. This estate is home to three of Antinori's  crown jewels: Solaia, Tignanello, and Chianti Classico Riserva.

Luciano Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2015 750ml

Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2015 Lacy, juicy, elegant, and nervy, Sandrone’s 2015 Barolo Le Vigne is a fabulous effort from a superb year. Rose petals and crushed lavender frame the abundant sweet red... cherries and berries that rest on a foundation of pressed mint, sun-warmed earth, cigar wrapper, and a touch of orange peel. For all its drink-me-now exuberance, this Barolo vibrates with acidic energy and focused, chewy tannins, suggesting that it’s in it for the long haul. Enjoy with liberal aeration or let it rest for the next couple of decades — either way, this Sandrone Barolo is a beauty!
