85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot. Garnet color with slight discoloration on the rim. The nose is quite aromatic, especially after it sits for 30 minutes. It has the earthy aroma typical of the Sangiovese grape, and the sour cherry turns slowly into ripe black cherry. There is some black currant too, as well as mild toasty notes. Medium/full bodied with smooth tannins and silky texture. Dark fruit, a gentle touch vanilla and dry soil on the palate, along with tomato leaves. The ripe fruit balances the sharp acidity of this wine, but it finishes a little short. Well made wine with a modern profile (Monte Antico is a proprietary label of Empson, a US based importer), it pairs well with pizza and marinara sauce (retail - $10.97 @ Harry's Cobb).

A wonderful full ruby with purple brushes on the edges. Full aromas of cherry, wild berries, herbs and slight oak. The taste is full bodied. The tannins are gripping and lead the fruit - black berry, currant and cherry to the end. A wonderful spice builds as the wine opens and the acidity finishes with a mouth watering pucker. 2nd wine of the tasting. Enjoy - Paul
