Monte Antico

Monte Antico IGT: 85% Sangiovese with 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The best selections are perfectly blended, aged one year in oak (80% in Slavonian oak barrels and 20% in barrique), followed by a minimum of six months in the bottle, and styled to a graceful balance of voluptuous berry tones and flexible/sturdy backbone. Ideal quality in vineyard and winery yield a food-friendly red with all the classic Tuscan seductiveness including delicious fruit, velvety, extract-fraught texture, full body, beautiful finish and superb balance. Dark ruby in color, its bouquet of leather, earth, herbs, black cherries, licorice and plums is confirmed on the medium to full-bodied palate. Round, spicy, elegant, attractively fruity and extremely versatile- in others words food friendly and pocket friendly!
