Description


This gem produced by the Antinori family was nothing short of revolutionary when it was first produced in 1971, ushering Italy  into the world of modern winemaking and pioneering what would be known as the "Super Tuscans". Piero Antinori set in motion an incredible story gathering the talents of world renowned protagonists Emile Peynaud, Giacomo Tachis, Robert Mondavi and more. Let this story be told and illustrated by a line up of fine Tignanello's vintages.
