The Antinori family are behind the Tignanello estate and have been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries. Today the firm is run by Marquis Piero Antinori with support from his three daughters. The Tenuta Tignanello estate is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico appellation just south of Florence. In these 127 hectares of vineyards the family have expressed their principles and working philosophies, balancing tradition, modernity and pure passion to produce wines which are strictly and authentically tied to their terroir. Both Tignanello and Solaia – the two iconic wines of the estate – have been described as being among the most influential wines in the viticultural history of Italy.
