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

Mourvedre, Grenache. Mineral and raspberry aromas to this dark wine. Frais de bois and raspberry flavors. Very nice, rich mouthfeel and a concentration of flavors in the midpalate. Chalky, stony finish.

Very attractive dark crimson color. Aromas of dark red fruit, coffee, spice, and earth. Coffee and tobacco were present on the palate, but there was also the taste of red cherry, blackberry, red pepper, and vanilla. The wine is full and smooth in the mouth. The finish is long and satisfying.

For the price I paid (5Euro) this was a decent purchase. Obviously not as complex as other Priorats, but with nine months in barrel this wine has some quality. Decent structure, nice earthiness and some dried fruit components.

Amazing nose on this wine. Big and floral with hints of ripe tropical fruit. Fairly round and rich on the palate. Very interesting wine.

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Mixing blackberry fruit tones with light sniffs of old leather and the tightness of youth, this wine still gets it spot on in its aromas and delivers well in the mouth. It is supple to start in palatefeel, then progress to a firm, tannin-supported spine that demands a fair bit of patience in order for the wine to come out of its rough stance. With depth to spare and focus that is true-to-type, this Zin can be put away with confidence.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Banana, pear and loads of pineapple characterize this fruity Greco that would pair well with most Mediterranean foods. The wine has a light, clean feel and ends with fresh citrus notes. It doesn’t have deep dimension, but it is easy-drinking and refreshing.

A dry, spritzy, floral white wine from the Baden region of Germany. This is made from a grape called Müller Thurgau and is simply a great thirst quencher.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino offers up sweet red cherries, flowers and hard candy in a juicy, approachable expression of Sangiovese. All the elements come together nicely in this tasty medium-bodied Brunello. The 2007 is ideally enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2017.

Nero d´Avola Sicilia IGT - 2007 - Sallier de La Tour: Nero d´Avola - 2007 - Rotwein von Sallier de La TourIm Glas funkelt der Nero d´Avola Sicilia IGT intensiv rubinrot. Aromen von roten Früchten, Kirsche und Pflaume verschmelzen mit einer eleganten Vanillenote. Am Gaumen präsentieren sich mittelkräftige Tannine und eine trockene gute Struktur.Die Trauben für diesen edlen Rotwein werden mit großer Passion von Sallier de La Tour vinifiziert. Eine Ertragsreduzierung führt zur hohen Konzentration und Qualität des Lesegutes. Zudem erfolgt der Ausbau in Stahltanks und in Holzfässern, so bleiben einerseits die frischen und fruchtigen Aromen erhalten und durch das Holz erhält der Wein seine Würze und Eleganz.Weingut: Sallier de La TourLand: ItalienRegion: Sizilien IGT - Landgut von Pernice - Monreale, PalermoRebsorte: Nero d´AvolaInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.% Säuregehalt: 6,2 g/lRestzucker: 2,9 g/lFassreife: Eichenholzfässer (Allier und Tronçais) für 12 Monate Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Nero d Avola
