Monte Antico 2009 IGT Toscana
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 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 terrior. Maestro Franco Bernabei does the honors as winemaker, selecting the best grape 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. James Suckling just scored it 90 points saying "A fruity wine with black cherry, blueberry and hints of pepper. Full and velvety with a long and delicious finish. Acidity is well-integrated with the fruit. One of the best value wines from Tuscany. Screw cap. A blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now."

Great value!
As an everyday red, you could not find a better value. Terrific Sangiovese blend. Consistent quality year after year.

Good everyday table wine
Great everyday wine. Good for light fare and as a before-dinner aperitivo.

perfect every day selection
For the price, this wine is hard to beat. It's a little thin but, for an everyday wine (we have wine almost every night with dinner), it's great. Save the Tignanello and Guado al Tasso for more special occasions: the Monte Antico is nice to have on hand when you don't need to splurge.

I am terribly disappointed. I think it was off when it arrived. I threw out 3 of the 6 bottles.

opened one bottle to taste for a party and found it very acidic. Bought it based on site's recommendation but can't fly with it.

WHat is the difference between the Monte Antico Toscana and the Monte Antico Rosso?
Powell on May 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No difference. Toscana means Tuscan and Rosso means red, but it's the same wine.
