JS 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - "This is one of the best wine values from Italy with a refined and very pretty mouthfeel of fine tannins and delicious fruit. Medium-to-full body, with pretty tannins and a fruity finish. 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Merlot. Drink now. Screw cap."
According to Antonio Galloni - "The 2009 Monte Antico, a Sangiovese/Merlot/Cabernet blend, is fabulous. Juicy, rich and expressive, the 2009 boasts gorgeous depth and radiance. Sweet red berries, tobacco, flowers and spices wrap around the finish. This is a great version of one of the perennial great values in Tuscan wine."
According to Wine Enthusiast - Best Buy! - "Monte Antico—a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon—is a great value choice that shows medium build in the mouth followed by bright notes of cherry and wild berry. The mouthfeel is smooth and spicy, but largely driven by simple, red fruit nuances."
According to Wine Spectator - "Candied cherry and strawberry notes mingle with tobacco and bitter almond flavors in this slim red. The tannins have grip. Drink now through 2017." 13% ABV.
