Antonelli Montefalco Rosso Riserva 1999

Member Review by kylewolf:

In the beginning there is only oak, prunes, and leather. the early palate consists of spices and white pepper. Despite that, this wine contains a smooth finish that is normally reserved to the most velvet merlots. This does not however diminish the aged complexity of the wine. The oak is strong but not overpowering and is reminiscent of aged smoked meat. . Spice does die out over time but still very easily drank. Perfect 1/8th inch burnt orange oxidation ring in the glass and well paired with peppered steak and jalepenos mashed potatoes. perhaps a little too much heat but I don't mind. Stone and gravel comes in toward the last glass. oak and heat is still there, however the leather and prune has subsided in favor of a more mineral quality on the nose as well as the palate

The estate has been in the Antonelli family since 1881. Although originally from Spoleto, the family transferred to Rome five generations ago. Francesco Antonelli, a lawyer, bought and transformed the property. Stefano Antonelli, also a lawyer, and Marianna Antonelli maintained it with loving care. Giacomo Antonelli, yet another lawyer, and Antonio Antonelli, an engineer, enlarged the property and invested in viticulture. Filippo Antonelli has been at the helm of the estate since 1986. He divides his time between Montefalco and Rome where he manages another family wine estate, Castello di Torre in Pietra. Born in Rome in 1960, he graduated from Perugia University with a degree in agriculture. He was president of the Consorzio Tutela Vini Montefalco from 1996 to 2006. Read less
