Monte Antico means ancient mountain in Italian. In the world of fine wines, a unique combination of quality, reliability and value since 1977, this label belongs to Neil & Maria Empson, who launched the Super Tuscan five years after founding the Neil Empson Selections. It was their special affinity to the heartland of Italy that led them to make their very own mark on Tuscan soil: with the Maestro of Italian winemakers, Franco Bernabei. They have styled the Tuscan grape per eccellenza and expressed its ultimate potential, complimenting it with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The best selections are cherry picked according to harvest conditions in the individual terroirs and microclimates. The blend for Monte Antico is 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. The best selections are blended and aged 1 year in oak (80% in Slovenian barrels, 20% in barrique) with at least 6 months bottle age. This wine is consistently one of Italy’s better values.

  • Monte Antico Rosso 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A good medium body red - strong cherry notes - perfect for a fall days sipping. Hints of plum with acidity to balance - nicely balanced wine - a little short on the finish. Under ten bucks at Costco - a bargain. Read More

  • Monte Antico Rosso 2006

    Snoothrank:

    For under $10 from Wine Discount Center in Chicago this is a good every day wine. I love the plum, cherry, and maple arroma. I felt this was more a medium bodied wine rather than full. The finish is ok but worth it for the price. I highly recommend letting this bottle sit out for a couple hours before drinking.I was motivated to try this wine be... Read More
