The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure.

The elite Tignanello site grows Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc. An ancient villa on the property dates back to 1346.

Acquired by the Antinoris in the mid 1800s, it is now source to one of the most historically significant wines in Chiant Classico.
Grapes are selectively picked over a course of three weeks between the end of September and early October. Fruit is treated to the highest scrutiny during harvest and again following it's arrival to the wineworks. A regimen of pumpovers with rack and returns is employed throughout the fermentations to retain varietal characters, intense colour and fine tannins. Upon completion, the wines are run off skins and transferred to small oak barrels for a completely natural malolactic before the end of January. Parcels are assembled and aged for a further twelve months in small oak while being racked at regular intervals. A final selection, barrel by barrel, determines the finished wine.
