2016 Monte Antico

Dark in color with a nice mild dark berry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some nice rich dark cherry notes along with some nice dark plum and tomato notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some vibrant acidity and nice tannins, the wine is dry in spite of the 9g/l. This is a LOVELY wine that punches WAY above it’s price point, a definite yum. I will go back and grab a lot more. Wow … We paired it with a Bison ribeye and it went well, not a perfect match, a little big for the food … From the LCBO web site, check stock.
