Maserati GranCabrio Folgore “Tignanello’

As a centerpiece of Festival Napa Valley’s Arts for All Gala, taking place July 14, 2024 at Napa Valley’s Nickel & Nickel Winery, the Festival is auctioning off a bespoke all-electric Maserati GranCabrio Folgore “Tignanello.” The luxury automobile was created expressly for Marchesi Antinori exclusively for Festival Napa Valley’s Arts for All Gala and in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Tignanello wine, one of the most influential red wines acclaimed for being ahead of its time.  

The auction package includes an invitation as Maserati’s guest to the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille in France in September 2024 where the car will be unveiled, a behind-the-scenes immersive visit to Maserati’s headquarters in Modena, Italy, and a custom Antinori experience in Tuscany with all-inclusive experiences at Tenuta Tignanello, Antinori nel Chianti Classico, Tenuta Guado al Tasso (Bolgheri), and Palazzo Antinori in Florence.

A one-of-a-kind Maserati, just like the wine for which it’s named

“This one-of-a-kind model, inspired by Tignanello for its 50th anniversary, is a car with great identity and recognizability, just like our wine. It’s an initiative that makes our family particularly proud: this special GranCabrio Folgore will be auctioned at Festival Napa Valley’s 2024 Arts for All Gala, with the proceeds donated to charity,” said Piero Antinori.

This custom edition of the first 100% electric luxury convertible, the fastest on the market, epitomizes the characteristics and values of Marchesi Antinori and Tignanello. In homage to the Florentine family of winemakers, the colors, shades, innovative materials and refined artisan details present an ode in motion to the prestigious Tignanello vineyard.
