“A medium-bodied red with aromas and flavors of cherries, fresh herbs, citrus zest and red tea. Soft tannins and a fruity finish.”-JS

“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.”-Winemaker Notes

“Neil Empson and renowned oenologist Franco Bernabei conjunctly orchestrate these wines from Tuscany's very finest vineyard sites. Having access to the region's top crus and ideal microclimates means they can pick and choose according to harvest conditions, achieving consistent excellence with each vintage.
The superlative characteristics of chosen locations and strict quality parameters make for the wine's depth, structure, character and longevity.
Terrain includes compact, very fine-textured limestone, at an altitude of 400-450 meters above sea level; rocky, clayey/calcareous areas, also at altitudes around 400 meters; and clayey/siliceous/calcareous soil, at an altitude of 250-300 meters: a cross-section of Tuscany's best.”-Winery Notes

Monte Antico

View all from Monte Antico
Monte AnticoMonte Antico, which means "ancient mountain," is Neil and Maria Empson's wholehearted tribute to Tuscany. Their forty years of passion and experience led them to create their own label along with their good friend Franco Bernabei, a master in Italian winemaking. Together, they have styled the quintessential Tuscan grape Sangiovese, highlighting all it has to offer and complementing it with just enough Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon to bring it all together.
