Tignanello. A Tuscan Story ,

AUTHOR: Piero Antinori

The 40th anniversary of one of the most loved wines in the world

45,00  38,25 

From its unique origin to its unstoppable development, told thru a story written by Marchese Piero Antinori, its creator, with the narrative pace of a novel and with the thorough and precise account of a great innovator.
All this, supported by a scenography that chronicles four decades of the history of Florence, the Chianti Classico and Tuscany.

From the prologue of Piero Antinori:

I remember the lengthy discussions about it with my father, with our collaborators and friends, meeting after meeting, at Palazzo Antinori in the late 1960s. We had a wine that, in hopes and intentions, was going to change the rules and begin a new era for the company, my family, and Tuscany. And, it was all going to be labelled with this far from evocative name, completely unfa- miliar to those who were not from the Chianti Classico area and did not know vineyards and terroir inside out. A name that was poles apart from every marketing rule. We hoped, thought, and knew that we had an outstanding wine in our new wood barriques, which was however going to be launched on the market with a name that was virtually unpronounceable to foreigners. Nevertheless, I was quite convinced by the choice of that name. As was Luigi Veronelli, the greatest wine journalist of his time and first promoter and defender of my wine.
