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.

    Snoothrank:

    I agree with most of the comments on this bottle of wine. For the money, it was a really tasty wine with subtle hints of cherry, leather and spice. We had it with Ribeye steaks and it complimented it well. Would definitely have again! Read More

  • Monte Antico Rosso 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very pleasant nose. Very unremarkable drink. Much lighter than I expected even after reading reviews. Can pair ok with pasta etc.. and gets a little better with decanting, but highly overrated and undesired in my book. Read More
