Reverse Wine Snob reviewed this wine as follows:

The 2007 Monte Antico Toscana IGT is another wine that got rave reviews for the previous vintage, but seems to have fallen off. We thought the wine was good but not great. It has a wonderful fruity floral aroma on the nose but is unable to live up to that standard the rest of the way. It has a nice berry flavor but a little too much oak combined with some harsh tannins. The finish is a bit of a letdown as well. Not bad for only $9 but you can probably do better.
