Tinazzi: an Italian red wine brand with luxuriant branches and excellent quality.

I have been waiting for the arrival of new Tinazzi products, and then I will write a new blog with a detailed introduction.

Now it's finally here.

The goods will arrive soon. Due to the large number of items, we will introduce them in two parts. The article is long and may be poorly written, but please take the time to read it carefully. I don’t want you to miss these high-quality wines.


The brand history is not very long, but it has developed rapidly, is ambitious and has a unique vision. The brand is not satisfied with taking root in northern Italy and studying wines such as Valpolicella . Instead, it looks at the whole of Italy and constantly restores, builds or acquires vineyards or wineries.

The brand was established in Verona, Veneto, Northern Italy in 1968; ( Verona )
Acquired 'Tenuta Valleselle' in Verona as a family estate in 1986; ( Verona )
In 2002, the headquarters was established in Lazise, ​​Northern Italy, and the 'Feudo Croce' estate in Puglia, Southern Italy was acquired in the same year; ( Puglia )
In 2011, the winery located in 'San Giorgio' in Puglia, South Italy was acquired and restored; ( Puglia )
In 2014, we acquired the Poderi Campopian Manor in Valpolicella, Northern Italy, and then planted grapes; and established a Pressing Cellar in the same area; ( Verona )
In 2017, he acquired an estate in central Italy and then planted grapes;
In 2022, it acquired Tenuta Pian del Gallo and set foot in Chianti. ( Chianti )

Since Tinazzi owns manors and wineries in both northern and southern Italy, the brand has a series with a wide range of wines. In addition to the famous Ripasso and Amarone in northern Italy, there are also Primitivo and Negroamaro in southern Italy. What is even more interesting is that they The various blended wines are innovative, unique and of high quality. Even after the acquisition in 2022, we will have the opportunity to taste Tinazzi’s Chianti.

Key words:

Located to the west of Veneto in the northern region of Italy, it is the origin of the famous wine Valpolicella, and the white wine Soave is also very outstanding.

Located in the wine-growing region on the east coast of Lake Garda in northern Italy, its wines are mainly made from Corvina or mixed with other grapes (Corvinove, Rondinella).
Ordinary Valpolicella red wine has not been aged very much. It is light-bodied, has obvious tannins and acidity, and is slightly bitter. However, the quality of the more advanced Valpolicella Superiore has been significantly improved.

Amarone della Valpolicella:
Based on the above Valpolicella, the harvested grapes are dried for 3 to 4 months into raisins, crushed and fermented at low temperature for 20 to 50 days, and then the wine needs to be aged in wooden barrels.
Amarone is a rich-bodied wine with obvious aromas of jam, raisins, coffee beans, black chocolate, etc. It has low acidity and high alcohol content. It is a wine with strong and powerful flavor, highly recognizable and very popular among the public.

Valpolicella Ripasso:
It is made by adding the ordinary Valpolicella red wine in the above paragraph to the remaining lees after brewing Amarone in the same year, and then fermenting it.
Ripasso has more tannins than Amarone, is less thick-bodied, slightly higher in acidity, and more balanced.

Located in southern Italy, the grape varieties include Primitivo, Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. Among them, Primitivo is the most famous and is the grape variety Zinfandel that shines in the United States.
Primitivo, located in Manduria, produces thicker, richer red wines full of blue fruit flavors, which are among the best in the region.

Years of acquisition, construction, restoration and other operations have allowed Tinazzi to develop a huge scale. Wineries and vineyards are distributed in the north and south of Italy, which is also conducive to the creation of a variety of wines by Tinazzi.
