The Tignanello winery is located in Tuscany and has about 130 hectares of cultivated land, divided into Tignanello and Solaia. The limestone and slate marl soil and the day-night temperature differences make these wines special. The vinification and aging cellars offer the possibility to bring out nuances of each wine through intensive care and shaping. The winery also owns parcels of Malvasia and Trebbiano grapes and 37 hectares of olive groves. This wine is made only from grapes grown at Tenuta Tignanello in the Mercatale Val di Pesa zone of the Chianti Classico area.
