Antica Winery

The name Antica originates from the words Antinori and California, and represents the Antinori family's longstanding desire to craft exceptional estate wines that are a true expression of Napa Valley terroir.
The Antinori's family's 26 generations of winemaking history has been long been synonymous with the famed winegrowing regions of Tuscany and Umbria. Today, their wines are among the most recognized and highly rated of Italy.
But the Marchese Piero Antinori and his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, are also known for seeking out the undiscovered potential of specific wine regions while staying true to the tradition, culture and taste of Antinori wines.

Antica Chardonnay 2014
92  Wine Enthusiast 
Wine Enthusiast 92"A heady opening of barrel reduction burns off in due time in this ultimately lovely wine that is intense in caramel apple and baked pear. Elegant on the palate, it has a big entry that settles into fresh, sophisticated layers of just-ripe fruit accented by a tart, tangy finish."

Antica Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
94  James Suckling 
Wine Advocate 94 "A beautifully elegant, stylish Cabernet Sauvignon from the Antinori outpost in Napa Valley, their 2013 has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful, sweet kiss of pure blackcurrant fruit, licorice and forest floor. Full-bodied, but with creamy texture, sweet, beautifully integrated

Antica Chardonnay 2013
91  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91 "Fresh apple blossom, green apple skin and citrus notes are present in the tart, minerally, naked 2013 Chardonnay that does a California imitation of a premier cru from Chablis. The long experience of the Antinori family making wines is reflected in this medium-bodied, stylish,

Antica Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
90  Wine Advocate 
The Wine Advocate 90  "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is dominated by earthy, loamy minerality, red and blackcurrants, and hints of baking spices and cedarwood. Tightly-knit, medium to full-bodied, and built for the long-term, it will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring and should last for 15 or more

Antica Chardonnay 2012
" The 2012 Chardonnay is pure, ripe, and richly flavored, yet fine and delicate. There are lots of distinctive peach, nectarine, and pear notes, finishing with subtle hints of vanilla and toast flavors. The finish on the wine is mouthwatering and gains depth with its long persistence on the palate.

Antica Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91-93 " The estate’s 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon wraps around the palate with lovely depth in its expressive, resonant fruit, showing no hard edges and excellent balance. Espresso, mocha, plums, cloves and freshly cut flowers are all layered into the vibrant, delineated finish. The energy

Antica Chardonnay 2011
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "Antica’s 2011 Chardonnay is laced with lemon peel, white flowers, spices and crushed rocks. In this vintage, the estate’s Chardonnay is especially rich and powerful, largely because the irregular flowering lowered yields by 50%. This is an unusual Chardonnay that is bright in its

Antica Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as a bit more reticent and inward next to the superb 2008, but it, too, is a gorgeous wine. Dark red fruit, licorice, smoke and tar are some of the nuances that flow from this layered, gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 was bottled just

Antica Chardonnay 2009
94  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 94 " The 2009 Chardonnay is one of the most unique Chardonnays being made in California. It shows gorgeous textural finesse and fabulous overall balance. The signature Napa Valley richness is there, but in a cooler, more mineral-driven style. Smoke, crushed rocks and citrus are

Antica Chardonnay 2010
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93 "The 2010 Chardonnay is quite a bit brighter and more focused than the 2009. Lemon peel, flowers, spices and crushed rocks are some of the notes that flow from this taut, mineral-driven wine. Hints of lemon, mint and jasmine reappear on the crisp, delineated finish. Anticipated

90  Robert Parker 
Robert Parker 90 "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a European take on Napa fruit with lots of terroir, earth, spice, black cherry, black currant, cedar, licorice and foresty notes. Medium-bodied and elegant with sweet tannins and excellent fruit, it should drink nicely for up to a decade. As

 Robert Parker 94 "The finest wine I have yet tasted from Piero Antinori's rocky hillside vineyard on Soda Canyon Road in southeast Napa, this 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a dense purple color along with a rich, sumptuous bouquet of licorice, creme de cassis, and smoky oak. This opulent, fleshy,

Antica Terra Pinot Noir 2007
92  Robert Parker 
 Robert Parker 92 "The 2007 Pinot Noir is medium ruby-colored with an alluring perfume of cinnamon, allspice, incense, cherry, and raspberry. This leads to a medium-bodied, elegant wine with excellent depth and concentration, a silky texture, and incipient complexity. This lengthy effort will
