Winemaker’s Notes

Some of the greatest wines produced an the Tuscan coast are the fruit of the typical Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Frane and Merlot. Characterized by the terroir of Tuscany, they are wines of outstanding personality.

N’ANTIA 2013
The year was decidedly positive: a summer which was not particularly hot assisted in a slow and gradual ripening of the grapes. The Merlot for N’Antia was harvested during the first ten days of September, while the Cabernet (both Franc and Sauvignon) benefited from the excellent weather and the picking lasted through the first ten days of October.

TASTING NOTES
A deep ruby in color, the nose is ample and complex with spicy and balsamic notes which fuse with lovely aromas of ripe berry fruit, subtle in their suggestions of black currants, tobacco, and vanilla. Intense in flavor, fleshy and supple with a long and deeply pleasurable finish and aftertaste.

MATCHES WITH FOOD
A fine accompaniment to roasts and cheese.

TO DRINK
Drinking well after four to six years, it will easily age for a decade.

TECHNICAL NOTES
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot

Aging: fifteen months in 60 gallon French oak barrels and ten months in bottle before release.
