Antinori Rosso Toscana 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The unique blends of grapes in this wine results in silkiness and fruit purity. A brilliant, yellow-green wine with a floral, apple complexity on the nose, intensely fruity and elegant, and a harmonious, soft mouthfeel.

Villa Antinori:
Villa Antinori is a prominent wine estate in Tuscany, Italy. Wine has been produced by the Antinori family since they came to Florence in the 14th century. The family estate, Palazzo Antinori, was purchased in Tuscany in 1506, and later that century, banker and merchant Alessandro Antinori began to produce the wines made there commercially.

Villa Antinori is a prominent wine estate in Tuscany, Italy. Wine has been produced by the Antinori family since they came to Florence in the 14th century. The family estate, Palazzo Antinori, was purchased in Tuscany in 1506, and later that century, banker and merchant Alessandro Antinori began to produce the wines made there commercially. Generations later, in 1928, Marquis Niccolò Antinori officially created the Villa Antinori brand, with the intention of producing an elegant Chianti fit for longevity. The wine was soon found in the cellars and on the tables of of some of the most prestigious houses, restaurants and hotels. In 1931, Villa Antinori began producing a white wine from Trebbiano, and in the 1980s, Chardonnay was added to the blend for elegance. In 2001, the estate added the production of Super Tuscans to their growing portfolio. In addition to table wines, Villa Antinori also produces sparkling wines, grappa and olive oil.  Read less

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.

Made with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot, the 2011 Guidalberto opens to dark, rich concentration and beautiful aromatic intensity. You really feel the weight and importance of the wine thanks to its shapely aromas of dark fruit, plum, spice and bitter chocolate. The mouthfeel is incredibly supple and the rich density is long lasting. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. - Robert Parker 92 PointsA lean, taut red, firmly grounded by dense, fine-grained tannins, with cherry, berry, spice and black pepper aromas and flavors. The finish echoes with fruit and spice. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2027. 30,000 cases made. BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 90 Points

As I noted last spring when reporting on the 2010s from the domaine the Taupenot parcel in Rognet was also replanted in the mid-1970s and the vines are in their prime. The 2011 Rognet was again a bit shaken from its recent mise but should prove to be outstanding with a decades worth of bottle age. The youthful nose is a fine blend of red and black cherries woodsmoke venison a fine base of soil herbs nutskins and a touch of spicy oak. On the palate the wine is deep full-bodied and very soil-driven with a rock solid core ripe firm tannins and a very long closed and primary finish. This will be excellent. 2024-2060+. John Gilman.

As the domaines parcels in Charmes and Mazoyhres are quite different in age (thirty years for the Charmes and fifty years of age for the Mazoyhres) so the domaine has bottled the two wines separately. The 2011 Charmes was showing quite well after its recent botltings jumping from the glass in a milange of black cherries plums grilled meats herb tones a lovely base of soil French roast and spicy wood. On the palate the wine is deep full-bodied pure and focused with firm tannins tangy acids and a long primary and classy finish. This will be superb. 2022-2060. John Gilman.

Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.

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.

An intense nose of dark cherries and currants with brown sugar, maple and slightly toasted aromas courtesy of new oak barrels.
