2015 Antica 'A3' Cabernet Sauvignon Premiere Napa Valley Auction

$349.00

Sourced from a single block of his mountainside site on Atlas Peak, Piero Antinori named this special Cabernet “A3” in appreciation of his three daughters, the 26th generation of winemakers in this family. We pounced on this at the auction; only 5 cases exist for the world of this true collectors’ item. Fathomless black fruit, tiramisu, toasted sage, and black cherries caress the palate in this simply KNOCKOUT bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. An absolute “Insiders’ Wine”!

Since Marchese Piero Antinori first visited Napa Valley in 1966, he dreamt of making a California wine worthy of the Antinori name and family history. Having put roots down in the eastern hills of Napa Valley’s Atlas Peak appellation, he felt this impossibly rocky and hilly terrain was perfectly suited for making high-caliber wines that possess a distinct sense of style and place. The results speak for themselves. Antica is the true intersection of where Italy meets California, having taken 600 years and 26 generations of winemaking expertise and transporting that knowledge to a new and exciting terroir with rich winegrowing potential. It may have taken 40 years to turn his Napa dream into reality, but Antica is the realization of that vision. We invite you to close your eyes, count some sheep, and prove to your palate that dreams can come true.
