The grappa Tignanello is gotten by the distillation of the vinacces of grapes Sangiovese and Cabernet picked up in the vineyard Tignanello, situated in the Estate of Tignanello in the heart of the Chianti Classico.
The fermented vinacces, move immediately to the distillery after having effected the emptying of the tubs of fermentation (svinatura) and the relative pressatura. This procedure guarantees that the distillation is effected using only the best vinacces, rich in alcohol and especially in aromatic substances.
Among the lotteries of grappa gotten by the distillation of the different games of vinaccia, only those best, the more goals and aromatic, they are assembled then and bottled.
The Antinori family has been making wine for over six hundred years, since Giovanni di Piero Antinori became part of the Arte Fiorentina dei Vinattieri in 1385. Throughout its long history, spanning 26 generations, the family has always personally managed the business making innovative, sometimes courageous choices, always with unwavering respect for tradition and the land. Today Marchese Piero Antinori is director of the company, assisted by his three daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, who are personally involved in the business. The qualities of tradition, passion and instinct have made Antinori one of the leading Italian producers of fine quality wines. Every vintage, every terroir, every idea is a new beginning, a new quest to raise our quality margins. Antinori continually experiment with their vineyards and cellars, with selections of native and international clones, growing methods, vineyard altitudes, fermentation methods and temperatures, traditional and modern vinification techniques, types of wood, size and age of barrels, and various bottle-ageing periods. Piero Antinori says: "We have shown over the years that it is possible to produce internationally-acclaimed fine stylish, elegant wines in Tuscany and Umbria while maintaining their original character".
