85% sangiovese, 10% cabernet sauvignon, 5% Merlot Interestingly this is both dark and leathery as well as being spicy and bright on the nose with plenty of black currant and slightly jammy strawberry fruit. very focused on entry, with a whiff of oak accompanying the taut berry fruit. the tannins are very well managed here and the acid as well offering a mouthfeel that is precise and shows unusual cut for a wine for this price. Mineral and leather notes emerge on the backend along with some dried herb and fruit notes before this fades on the moderately long and nervous finish. The wood does become more prominent on the nose here but what really impresses with this wine is energy it retains and the nervous texture that one rarely finds at this price point. This remains a fabulous little wine that just lacks a bit of flavor intensity. 88pts

This is a 2009 Tuscan Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Savignon blend. It has a deep ruby hue with a mid to tight rim variation. Bold fruity notes of plum and black cherry with a slight hint of vanilia and coffee and balanced acidity. The time for this wine is now to 2016. Best served chilled to 56 degrees, and served with a veal parmigiana with pasta dish.

Italian blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is dry but not overly dry. There is medium body with few layers of complexity. The nose is jam and pepper with a palate of jam, plums, and peppers. I am barely able to say a medium finish. Not a bad wine for weekday Italian night.

Dark ruby in color, its bouquet of leather, earth, herbs, black cherries, licorice and plums is confirmed on the medium to full-bodied palate - round, spicy, elegant, attractively fruity.

Tuscany, ItalyMonte Antico Rosso Toscana is a beautiful Tuscan red wine made by maestro Franco Bernabei for importer Neil Empson. Meaning "ancient mountain" in Italian, this super Tuscan blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon has offered a unique combination of quality and value since its launch in 1977. The grapes come from vineyards ranging up to 1500 ft above sea level.Monte Antico is a beautiful dark ruby in color. Its bouquet of leather, earth, herbs, black cherries, licorice and plums is confirmed on the medium to full-bodied palate - round, spicy, elegant, attractively fruity and extremely versatile. The wine was aged for one year in French and Slavonian oak followed by 6 months in bottle. The finish is rich, long and polished.Enjoy Monte Antico over the next 3-5 years with veal, pasta, risotto, osso bucco, and aged cheeses.

Candied cherry and strawberry notes mingle with tobacco and bitter almond flavors in this slim red. The tannins have grip. Drink now through 2017. 3,500 cases imported. -BS Monte Antico-a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon-is a great value choice that shows medium build in the mouth followed by bright notes of cherry and wild berry. The mouthfeel is smooth and spicy, but largely driven by simple, red fruit nuances.

Deep ruby colour with garnet reflections, its elegant bouquet of leather, black cherries, liquorice and plums preludes a medium to full-bodied palate where ripe red fruit, subtle notes of vanilla and violets harmonize and linger, interlacing with the soft tannins and silky texture.
