This parcel of wine and spirits was brought to us by a long-time aficionado, who began collecting wine in 1981. His interest in collecting began during his career, where every successful business closure was celebrated with fine wine. His wines and spirits were purchased through the SAQ, LCBO, and US independent retailers, and were stored in his temperature and humidity-controlled home cellar before coming to auction.
Producer notes- Tignanello is the most famous of all Antinori's wines. The vineyard of the same name extends to 57 hectares (140 acres) on limestone-rich soils on a southwest-facing slope 350-400m (1150-1300ft) above sea level. This wine was the first in the region to combine the regional staple Sangiovese with non-traditional international varieties, and to omit white grapes – hence being classified as a Vino da Tavola. It is now a Toscana IGT. A typical composition for recent vintages would be 80 percent Sangiovese with 15 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 5 percent Cabernet Franc. Tignanello is aged for 12-14 months in a mix of new and one year-old French and Hungarian oak.
