Mar 18, 2011- WS 90pts. - #61 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2009 - According to James Suckling on his WineSpectator.com blog: I came across an incredible value in my office in Tuscany today. Tasting a range of wines from $10 to $25 with Neil and Maria Empson of Empson & Co., I found some excellent wines. But what was the most impressive for the money was the Monte Antico 2006. Its suggested retail is $11, and it could sell for less (like here). And it is in the market now. Granted, I have not tasted it blind yet. But it’s in the very good to outstanding range. The wine is 75 percent Sangiovese, 15 percent Merlot and 10 percent Cabernet Sauvignon. It is made from 25-year-old vines minimum, mostly from Pisa, Maremma and Chianti Classico areas. Of course, the quality of the 2006 vintage in Tuscany shined through on this wine. This is a superb Sangiovese year...

Of course, the quality of the 2006 vintage in Tuscany shined through on this wine. This is a superb Sangiovese year. The aromatic quality of Sangiovese is mind-blowing for most wines from Tuscany. The 2006 Monte Antico has beautiful plums, berries and fresh acidity. Fantastico! And for $11!

Excellent value, rich flavor
My girlfriend brought home several bottles of wine that were left over from an event. I prepared steaks one night and opened the Monte Antico. The wine has a distinct licorice, leather and cherry bouquet. I was sad to get to the end of the bottle and now I am scouring the internet for prices. Luckily, this wine is extremely affordable.

The steaks may have turned out terrible, but the wine definitely saved the evening.

As a gift this morning from my mother-in-law for Christmas I paired it with my meat and sausage lasagne.  Excellent match,just maybe should have stopped at 2 glasses.  WOW!!  And all from my MIL.
