2013 Antinori Red Blend Tuscany

(0) No Reviews yet


This gorgeous Cabernet blend may turn out to be one of the best Solaia wines Antinori has ever made. The excellent weather brought out all the quality of the Cabernet Franc, picked between September 28th and 30th, while the Sangiovese was picked during the first week of October. The Cabernet Sauvignon crop was brought to the cellar between October 7th and 16th under climatic conditions which were absolutely perfect for the quality of the fruit."

James Suckling has awarded this wine 97 points, and The Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator are sure to follow suit for this blue-chip from a brilliant vintage. A 6-pack or a case would be a smart addition to your cellar, and enliven your dinner parties for many years to come!

Details

There just aren't many on the level of Piero Antinori. Process this for a moment: He represents the 25th generation in an unbroken string of vintners, beginning in 1385. 26 generations! His family started accumulating knowledge about vineyard and cellar practices when Chaucer was working on The Canterbury Tales. It's difficult to comprehend. His lifetime experience cannot be overstated as he has literally been involved with wine his entire life. In fact, one of his first memories is of German soldiers shooting barrels in his family's cellars as Europe descended into chaos at the end of WWII. He has a truly encyclopedic knowledge of what it means to be a winemaker, and he understands that he is a vital link from his family's past to its future as the Antinori footprint expands across the globe.
