Nick Onischuk rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The Monte Antico 2010 is a nice blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Red berry fruit, spice and earthiness on the nose and palate. This wine would pair nicely with a homemade lasagna. Tasted on November 29,2015 (87/100)
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A totally easy drinking, buy by the case, Tuesday night Tuscan red blend table wine. Mild to med aromas of cherry, blackberry, earthy wine with a touch of baking spice.
The palate shows more pronounced fruit flavours including: red berries, black cherry, toasty oak, a little mocha-esque note. This wine is light to medium bodied with structured acidity and tannins. Enjoy now! It will pair extremely well with holiday entertaining!
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Old world flavours consistent with its super-Tuscan components 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. The 2010 vintage of this ruby red beauty offers Great value for money. This is a less expensive Super-Tuscan, at 13?V, which delivers on old world leather and earthiness, baking spice as well as solid black and red fruit, medium tannins, medium acidity in a well-balanced way, with integrated flavours and an elegant lush mouthfeel. Wonderful pairing with spinach and truffle gnocchi and parmigiana reggiano. this is a wine to buy by the case. Wonderfully diverse with meat dishes and classic Italian fare as well. Enjoy 2015-2018.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
