Tinazzi is a family-owned and operated estate based in Verona, near Lake Garda. Starting in the 1960s with vineyards in Valpolicella and Bardolino, the family has since acquired land in Puglia, where it grows Primitivo, among others.

Though they have a standard portfolio, with wines ranging from Amarone to Primitivo di Manduria, they have released a blend that celebrates Italy, north to south, and Sicily, too.

Earning 93 Points from leading Italian wine critic Luca Maroni, and a place in Italy's Best Wines of 2016, this surprising blend is an Italian tour de force.
