This lush, juicy red displays its high-altitude pedigree in meaty, grippy tannins and an expansive weight on the palate. A powerhouse with a soft side, round flavors of blackberry, cherry and earthy mushroom contribute to delicious drinkability in this generous Cabernet. Decant now or cellar, at your pleasure.

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.

A full and juicy red with berry and mushroom character, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows focus and tension. Drink after 2020.
