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, the Tinazzi family created the Opera 3 blend to celebrate Italy, north to south, including Sicily!
Earning 93 Points from leading Italian wine critic Luca Maroni, 95 points from Decanter, and a place in Italy's Best Wines of 2016, this surprising blend is an Italian tour de force.
