This time next year, the 2021 harvest will mark 50 years of Tignanello, one of the most celebrated Italian wines. In 1971 this cult classic was one of the first reds from Tuscany to be vinified without the use of white grapes. It was also the first Sangiovese blended with international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and aged in small oak barrels instead of the traditional botti (large oak casks).
