Antinori, comprising ten estates across Tuscany and Umbria, is the most famous name in fine Italian wine.
The hugely respected Antinori family has a distinguished history of fine winemaking and banking in Tuscany dating back to the 13th century, spanning 26 generations. But it has been the revolutionary efforts of Piero Antinori that have really established it as one of the world's groundbreaking estates.
Antinori's premiere wine is the Tignanello, which was first made in 1971 when it caused massive controversy for being the first wine to include Cabernet Sauvignon in a Sangiovese-based blend. However, it wasn't long before other blends were popping up all over Tuscany and the (now legendary) Super Tuscan style was born.
