The Tenuta Tignanello:

The Tenuta Tignanello estate is located in the center of Chianti Classico, on a gentle slope between Greve and the Pesa river valley. It covers 788 acres, 313 of which are used to grow grapes. Two of the estate's prized vineyards are on the same hillside, Tignanello and Solaia, and the soil comes from the pliocene period's Marine marl, rich in limestone and schist. Vines enjoy high temperatures during the day and cool nights throughout the growing season.

The estate's two signature wines - Solaia and Tignanello - are made from these vineyards and are defined by international media as "" one of the most influential wines in the history of Italian viticulture" ". Solaia and Tignanello are a constant challenge and never-ending passion, according to Marchesi Antinori. The Tignanello estate has vineyards of sangiovese and other grapes.

In 1974, Silvio Coppola designed the brand for the release of 1971's "Tignanello." The idea of commissioning the artist's work was discussed at the Castello Della Sala exhibition in 1973. Silvio coppola is a leading Italian graphic and interior designer known for minimalist lighting and Spartan furniture, as well as designing covers for the Italian publication Feltrinelli. Silvio coppola is the best person for the job.

The current honorary chairman, Marchese Piero Antinori, decided to have his father, Niccolo Antinori, sign the label to show his trust in his father.
