Neil and Maria Empson launched Monte Antico (Italian for Ancient Mountain) in the late 1970s. With the Maestro of Italian winemakers, Franco Bernabei, they have styled the Tuscan grape and expressed its ultimate potential, complementing it with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine itself comes from a few of the region’s finest vineyard sites, in the areas of Maremma, Colline Pisane, and Colli Fiorentini. The finest selections are cherry picked according to harvest conditions in the individual terroirs and microclimates. This balanced orchestration of geological diversity makes for the wine’s consistent excellence. The characteristics of chosen locations and strict quality parameters make for the wine’s depth, structure, character, and longevity. The Affordable Super Tuscan!
