Monte Antico Rosso 2015
A true Tuscan classic! Deep ruby color with garnet reflections and an elegant bouquet of leather, black cherries, licorice and plums; a medium to a full-bodied palate, rich in ripe red fruit, goût de terroir, subtle notes of vanilla and violet that are well-integrated with the soft tannins and silky texture. Firm backbone, perfect integration of acidity and fruit and a well-rounded, gentle finish.
Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

|I like the pretty tangerine and citrus character here, which works well with the main attraction of red berries and spices. Light to medium body, fine tannins and a fruity finish. A blend of sangiovese, merlot, sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon. Drink now. Screw cap.|
