Monte Antico 2007 Toscana IGT
A perpetual Best Buy and a frequent selection for the Top 100 lists, Monte Antico is a Tuscan gem that over delivers vintage after vintage. Made from a selection of grapes from Tuscanyís finest vineyard sites. A blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot, Monte Antico is Neil & Maria Empsonís tribute to Tuscany. Importers of exceptional Italian wines for over thirty years the Empsons have grown a strong affinity with Italian wines and its terroir. Maestro Franco Bernabei does the honors as winemaker, selecting the best lots, fermenting slowly and then aging the finished wine 1 year in oak (80% in Slavonian, 20% French) and at least 6 months in the bottle to achieve a graceful balance of voluptuous berry tones and a soft forward style thatís ideal with food. 90 points from James Suckling who said "Plenty of blackberry and chocolate character, with hints of plums. Full and very velvety with a bright and fruity finish. Always one of the best values in Tuscany. Delicious now."

      I purchase wine at my local Wine & Spirits state run store, and lean towards the "chairman selections" in the 10- 15 dollar range, so after watching the on line tasting of this wine, I gave it a whirl... very glad I purchased and ordered again. TRY IT!!

        Tried this wine after seeing it on best 100 wines list. For an Italian wine of this quality, the price is amazing. This is one of our favorite everyday wines!

              This is a nice all around super-tuscan, smooth, balanced, with berries and cherry flavors. We had a few guests over and served it among others (a french Pinot noire, a puglianese Negroamaro and a Merlot blend)with a dinner composed of caponata, pasta with meatballs and sausage in Italian gravy and a chocolate cheese cake. We had to replenish the Monte Antico bottles twice, while all other bottles had wine left in the first bottles.

                        My neighbor invited me over to try Monte Antico...both of us and our wives could not drink this. We ended up pouring it down the sink. Sorry but this is the truth. Maybe it was "skunked" or what. It left a bad taste that will keep us away from this vintage. It will not make the top 100 best wines but has a shot at the top 10 worst.

                            This is a great everyday wine. I like it with burgers, pizza, turkey meatballs and spaghetti; not fancy foods but good flavorful food.

                            This is drink now but it will continue to deliver over the next year or two.

                            Screw tops may not appear as classy as corks but they are very effective closures that most experts feel are as good or even superior to corks because there is no risk of the wine being spoiled by cork taint.
