    ($55; a complicated blend of 60% sauvignon with 40% grechetto, traminer and riesling) Medium-deep gold with an amber tinge. Sweet aromas of ripe pineapple, yellow peach and ginger are nicely complicated by suggestions of noble rot. At once plump and juicy, with wonderful acids framing the decadent tropical fruit flavors and giving this wine a light touch. Displays seductive sweetness and a spicy note on the long, smooth finish.

    Golden. Nose reminds of quince, marmalade and apricot. Nice, sweet mouth, good acidity.

Although the Antinori family has been making wine for over 600 years and is steeped in tradition, they haven't been afraid to modernize production and to take an innovative approach to blending. One result is the world famous Super Tuscan "Tignanello," a blend of Sangiovese (85%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%), and Cabernet Franc (5%). Marchesi Piero Antinori is the current proprietor of the estate, and was instrumental in creating Tignanello, propelling the popularity of Super Tuscans worldwide.

Antinori produces wines from the Italian regions of Tuscany and Umbria. In addition to Tignanello, some of Antinori's most well-known wines include Solaia, Guado al Tasso, Campo di Sasso, Badia a Passignano, Pian delle Vigne, and Chianti Classico. Antinori's various estates include 1,400 hectares of vineyards planted in Bolgheri, Montalcino, Orvieto, Montepulciano, and Chianti Classico, as well as the emerging locales Sovana and southern Maremma.
