A perpetual Best Buy and a frequent selection for the Top 100 lists, Monte Antico is a Tuscan gem that over delivers vintage after vintage. Made from a selection of Tuscany’s finest vineyard sites, a blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot, Monte Antico is Neil & Maria Empson’s tribute to Tuscany. Importers of exceptional Italian wines for over thirty years the Empsons have grown a strong affinity with Italian wines and its terrior. Maestro Franco Bernabei does the honors as winemaker, selecting the best grape lots, fermenting slowly and then aging the finished wine 1 year in oak (80% in Slavonian, 20% French) and at least 6 months in the bottle to achieve a graceful balance of voluptuous berry tones and a soft forward style that’s ideal with food.

Winemaker's Notes:

88 points Wine Spectator: A sinewy, well-muscled red. Cherry and berry flavors are at its core and there's an underlying spiciness. It stays fresh, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2014. (10/31/12) 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

<p>Refined in oak barrels and boasting a dark, ruby red color, this Italian Syrah is the product of Armando Merge, who founded the company in 1970. Desiring to combine modern efficiency with established winemaking techniques, Armando produces wine with the flavor and quality of classic wines, yet with the consistency of modern production.</p>
