Nice berry aroma with some other subtle notes of spice and even something vegetal. Medium body, smooth texture and flavor of tart cherries all the way to the finish. Very nice for $12.

A perfectly average Tuscan wine. A good table wine. I couldn't find any fault with it and enjoyed it but it did not exhibit significantly more character than a straw basket chianti. It's a good buy for the price.

2008 Tablas Creek Rosé (58% Mourvèdre, 32% Grenache, 10% Counoise). Reddish pink color darker than most Rosés; Well balanced, Plum, watermelon, strawberry on nose and palate; fresh, crisp lingering flavors on the finish. Really enjoying this wine, especially on hot day like today. July 19, 2009

Crisp, focused and lean, but with a nice band of raspberry, anise and vanilla aromas and flavors. A Tuscan red; technically not a Chianti, but similar in style. Drink now to 1996. 90 percent Sangiovese and 10 percent Canaiolo.

Lovely Sangiovese-based red (with a splash of Merlot blended in) from the heart of Tuscany. Light- to medium-bodied, with bright red fruit, silky tannins and fresh acidity. Perfect for pizza, burgers and light pasta dishes.

Farbe: dunkles Rubin. Beerig im Duft, leichte Dörrfruchtaromatik und Noten von Unterholz. Frisch-fruchtig und süffig am Gaumen-unkompliziert und sauber vinifiziert.

A light, easygoing red, with clean black fruit and mineral character. Fresh palate and fruity finish. Pretty good for such a difficult vintage. Drink now.

Crisp and fruity, with plenty of dried cherry character throughout. Light- to medium-bodied, with light tannins and a refreshing finish. Delicious now.

For more than 600 years, the Antinori family has been producing fine wines in Tuscany. Santa Cristina, a blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot, is aged in oak casks for 4 months. A smooth, quaffable wine to enjoy with family and friends, it would pair well with light tomato sauces, grilled salmon or chicken stir-fry.

This wine boasts aromas of saddle leather and black cherries, with just a hint of medical tape. On the palate, the flavors remain true, with cherries and leather predominating, and a slight creaminess. Finishes tart and a bit one-dimensionally fruity, but this is a nice entry-level Sangiovese with good varietal character.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting 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.
