Monte Antico was established in the early 1970s and takes their name from the medieval town of the same name located in Maremma, just a short distance from Montalcino towards the sea. This is however an historic estate surrounded by vineyards, forests, olive groves and even a hunting reserve.
The vineyards are within Maremma, close to Scansano as well as Colline Pisane, Coli Fiorentini and a few areas in Chianti Classico. The total vineyard area is around 200 hectares, with Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot planted at different altitudes and in different soils which guarantee sun exposure and early ripening from the more coastal vines, while inland, hillside grapes show important daytime/night-time temperature differences conducive to high quality fruit and acidity
This accessible Super Tuscan has an elegant bouquet of leather, black cherries, liquorice and plums leading to a medium to full-bodied palate where ripe red fruit show off the goût de terroir in addition to subtle notes of vanilla and violets, which harmonise and linger, interlacing with the soft tannins and gorgeous silky texture. A firm backbone with perfect integration of acidity and fruit. Sangiovese 85% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot 5%
