Meghan Markle doesn’t just have a favorite wine. She had a lifestyle blog named after it.
Antinori’s Tignanello (discontinued lifestyle blog: The Tig) is an Italian wine produced in Tuscany. Specifically, it’s a red wine blend of predominantly Sangiovese, with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc mixed in.
Known as one of Itlay’s “Super Tuscans,” a distinction technically referring to its grape origins (some grapes are grown outside the perimeters of the Tuscan sun), Tignanello was released in 1971, and quickly became one of Italy’s most sought-after wines. As is only fitting for a wine beloved by Meghan Markle, its category is considered one of Italian wine’s finest.
Flavor notes for Tignanello include red fruit, cherry, spice, tobacco, and herbs. A bottle will typically run you about $100, depending on the vintage.
As Markle says in her farewell note to Tig readers: “Keep finding those Tig moments.” And if you can’t afford it, rest assured, “you, my sweet friend, you are enough.”
