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.

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."

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% ** SOLD OUT **

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.

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

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.
