Wine of the Week
Monte Antico is a tribute to Tuscany. A result of a collaboration between wine specialist Neil Empson and renowned Italian winemaker Franco Barnabei. With over forty years of experience, this is a fitting wine paying homage to the region they love. Monte Antico, “Ancient Mountain” is considered a “Super Tuscan”. Which means the blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet are not on the list of grapes allowed by law for a wine to be labeled Chianti. This red is ruby/garnet in color with black cherry, licorice and plum aromas. The palate has light fruit flavors of dried cherries with hints of milk chocolate in the medium body and slightly rustic finish.
Italian food, what else? Pasta, Pizza and Pappardelle all are great matches. You might also try mushroom Risotto, or Steak Pizzaiola.
