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 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

Pale straw yellow in color. The nose presents pleasing aromas of yellow fruit, white flowers and orange blossoms. Full in flavor the 2011 Pinot Grigio has a soft and savory palate that finishes with lively acidity. - WineryOrigin: Sicilia IGTBlend: 100% Pinot GrigioAlcohol: 12%

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

Mittleres Rubinrot mit purpurroten Reflexen; in der Nase dunkle und rote Früchte mit feiner Würze und etwas Vanille. Im Gaumen sehr fruchtig und süffig mit schmelzenden Tanninen, reifen Beerenaromen mit saftigem, mittellangem Nachhall.

Even if red wine is not your speed, give our Ménage à Trois Red a try. This wine exposes the fresh, ripe, jam-like fruit that is the calling card of California wine. Ménage à Trois Red brings together three strange bedfellows.On top weve got Zinfandel, a saucy tease that brings blackberry and raspberry jam to the relationship. Merlot, with its generous mouth feel and red fruits, fits perfectly in the middle. The rich flavors and firm tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon make it the ideal. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

White wine 2011 Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Turckheim indice 5 with a volume of 75 cl from France Region Alsace With the Grape: Gewurztraminer 92 Robert Parker

From vines that average more than 60 years of age. A pure ripe and strikingly complex nose combines notes of red berry fruit liqueur wet stone discreet spice elements and floral hints. There is a very suave and textured mouth feel to the appealingly precise middle weight flavors that exude a lovely mineral element on the slightly saline-infused finish. A classic Chambolle. Burghound.
