    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense ruby red in color. The wine opens with intense aromas of ripe cherries, spice, chocolate and hints of mint. The wine is full-bodied with a palate of rich fruit and spice. The tannins are round and velvety and lead to a lingering finish.

    Blend: 55% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 5% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    A red with depth and richness, boasting black cherry, blackberry and tobacco notes. Requires some time to absorb its tannins, yet this is well-proportioned. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best from 2014 through 2022.

    The 2008 Villa Antinori comes across as richer, darker and weightier than the 2007 tasted alongside it. Black cherries, smoke, licorice and tar are some of the notes that emerge from this powerful entry-level red. A long, intense finish rounds things out nicely. Villa Antinori is predominantly Sangiovese, with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.

    A nice deep red Tuscan blend. Black cherry, smoke and licorice dominated the palate. Served this at a get together and even those who don't favor red wine enjoyed this Tuscan.

    Recently held a wine tasting party. Based on the number of bottles consumed, this wine was #2 with my guests. A very good wine. Smooth. A great blend.

    Villa Antinori continues to produce fabulous wines for the money. I enjoy this wine with a meal or just alone with a good cigar.

    Nice Italian wine. More tanin than I was expecting. Needs to rest a couple years to balance out. I hope my second bottle holds up.
