2015 Monte Antico

Dark in color with a mild red berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some cherry notes along with some firm smoky/woody notes. This is a VERY oaked wine. With some time these oak notes might soften but for now, wood is the dominant note. I would give it an 87-88. I won’t be rushing to grab more. From the LCBO web site, check stock:

Monte Antico from LCBO

This modern Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cab offers refined cherry and berry aromas with enough structure for short-term cellaring or pairing with food tonight. Great with spaghetti and meatballs, or with grilled lamb with mushroom risotto.
