About This Wine:
Alberto Antonini is such a person. He was born in Empoli, near Florence, in one of the world’s great wine regions: Tuscany. He would grow up to attend the University of Florence, where he’d earn a Doctorate in Agricultural Studies. Later, he’d earn Oenology degrees from both the University of Bordeaux and the University of California at Davis.
It didn’t take long for him to land a job as an assistant winemaker at the famous Frescobaldi Winery, and then to begin a rapid ascent in the wine industry as a head winemaker and global wine consultant. It seems as if any wine Antonini touches is destined for greatness, and so it was with the 2017 Montesenese Rosso.
This “Super Tuscan” cuvee of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon is a big wine that, like the best wines of Tuscany, is extremely food-friendly.
