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."

Just Right....

This wine is well-balanced...nothing stands out as bad, but nothing stands out as stellar either. It is just right for a wine that won't overwhelm you, but won't dissapoint you either. ...Read complete review

This wine is well-balanced...nothing stands out as bad, but nothing stands out as stellar either. It is just right for a wine that won't overwhelm you, but won't dissapoint you either. If you are searching for a super-tannic, BIG wine, this is not for you, but for a decent drinking European Red, this is great!

                      Hi Mike - thanks for your question! Do you by any chance have a shared email address? That could bring your wife's info to your review if she has bought from us or reviewed wine from us in the past. Cheers!

                      A:

                      No difference. Toscana means Tuscan and Rosso means red, but it's the same wine.
