The 2010 Cotes de Tablas is a bit more accessible than some of the single-variety wines because of its medium-bodied structure. Dark red cherries, flowers and tobacco float through to the medium-bodied, refined finish, where a dash of Counoise adds lift. The 2010 is 46% Grenache, 39% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Counoise. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
Deep ruby. Complex scents of black raspberry, pipe tobacco, potpourri and spicecake. Smooth, open-knit cherry and dark berry flavors are complemented by smoky herb and lavender qualities, with a spicy nuance building on the back half. Closes on a sweet note, with excellent clarity and spicy persistence.
The grapes for this rosé come from vines that were originally imported from the famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape vineyard, Château de Beaucastel and are now certified organic. This is a blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Counoise and is made in limited quantities. A nose of watermelon, mineral and plum explodes from the glass followed with bright cherry, finishing with lime and tangarine on the palate. Pair it with Mediterranean cuisine, Spanish tapas, preparations with garlic and olive oil... or just enjoy it outside on a sunny day.
Santa Cristina is probably Antinori's absolute best value Tuscan red. Grown on their hillside estate vineyard in Cortona, near Montalcino, this blend of 60% Sangiovese 40% Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah with a hint of oak aging is a prime example of their ability to combine long standing traditions with dynamic innovation. The wine shows bold aromas, with hints cherry, roasted nuts and tobacco. On the palate it is well-rounded, harmonious, and rich with a lingering finish. All of this for under $11 and the Antinori name on the label. Pretty hard to top.
Straw-yellow in color. The bouquet opens with luscious fruity-floral aromas reminiscent of lemon zest and white flowers. Soft and well-balanced on the palate, with lingering flavors of fresh citrus on the finish.
