Antano Milziade Umbria Rosso

SKU #1062252

According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "These are among the most accessible wines from Montefalco when young, which also makes them a great starting point for readers who want to explore the breadth of Montefalco’s oenological beauty. In particular, the single-vineyard Sagrantino Colleallodole is an essential wine for any well stocked cellar. Antano gives his wines long macerations on the skins and favors casks for his Montefalco Rosso, Montefalco Rosso Riserva and Sagrantino, while the Sagrantino Collealodolle is aged in neutral French oak tonneaux. The wines are neither fined nor filtered prior to bottling and they will benefit from a few hours of aeration prior to being served. Simply put, readers should do whatever they can to get their hands on these splendid reference-point wines." (04/09)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
