Antinori Rosso Toscana 2011
Love this Paso Robles Rhone white blend. Loads of tongue coating layers, ripe pear, peach, clove, spice, white chocolate, fantastic balance and a long finish.
Well this is probably the firs time I give an absolute score to wine. Unlike most Italian wines this one has a huge tight aroma full of dark red fruits (thanks to merlot probably)! fullbodied, expressive wine with long aftertaste. This is perfectly balanced wine for a good price. I just love it! There was also a label on the bottle says "it's perfect for cheese and appetizers" (check pictures)... and I would say the best pairing for this wine is hard cheese.
The wine opens with a ruby red color with violet tinges. It has a full and intense fragrance with hints of red fruit which bring to mind cherries and raspberries. On the palate the wine is smooth and well-balanced. The finish is characterized by gentle tannins and the persistent flavor of the grapes which make is so delicious and easy to drink. -The Winery
Tastes like a Pinot Grigio. Not bad but not interesting either. Usual pear flavor. Thin bodied.

An intense nose of dark cherries and currants with brown sugar, maple and slightly toasted aromas courtesy of new oak barrels.
Pale red. Perfumed bouquet of red and dark berries, dried rose, black pepper and orange zest. Fresh and spicy on the palate, with sappy raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Finishes broad and long, with str... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

One can enjoy the view of this beautiful panorama from the new Santa Cristina winery, which came into existence in 2006 with the goal of acknowledging and renewing the tradition of the wine known by the same name.
High on a hill in Tuscany, not far from Siena and Perugia, rises the historic town of Cortona. One can enjoy the view of this beautiful panorama from the new Santa Cristina winery, which came into existence in 2006.
55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Intense ruby red colour with purply hues. The nice hints of red berries and vanilla aromas from the oak are accompanied by good structure. The palate is complex and stylish with soft tannins. Villa Antinori Website
Antinori is a world famous producer of Tuscan wines, their history going back literally centuries. The Villa Antinori is the estate where the Chianti Classico wines have been produced for many years. This wine is a natural progression from their Chianti Classico. As the Antinoris recognized how non-native grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah raised the level of quality of their wine they started blending more and more and finally could no longer use the DOC designation and so it became a Super Tuscan IGT. But the quality they’ve reached is exceptional, especially as they’ve experimented more with aging in small oak barrels. The blend is very consistent for this wine; 55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Syrah. Wine Spectator just made it a Smart Buy and scored it 90 points saying "This is fleshy and balanced, with black currant and blackberry notes accented by cedar, tobacco and spice details. Offers intensity and length in a contemporary style. Best from 2015 through 2022."
