About Molino Sant'Antimo
In the early 1980s Carlo Vittori, already a well-known and experienced winemaker bought his first piece of land to the south of Montalcino close to the hamlet of Castelnuovo dell’Abate.

It soon became apparent that the investment had been a good one as the soil characteristics ...New York, New Jersey, California, Massanois Imports
Wine Advocate"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Varco 84 is an elegant and subdued wine that holds back in intensity, but only initially. After a few moments it really starts to blossom and it shows delineated berry tones that are balanced against spice, leather and mineral. This Brunello presents a lightweight style with moderate persistence. But the overall aromatic intensity is notable.

Wine Enthusiast"Earthy aromas that recall leather, truffle, ripe plum, blue flower and exotic spice take shape in the glass. The full-bodied palate shows dried black cherry, blackberry jam, sage and clove alongside close-grained tannins that leave a grippy finish." - Kerin O'Keefe, June 2016
James Suckling"Very fine and savory tannins and walnut, berry and light coffee bean aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, lovely silky tannins and a clean finish. Drink now." - James Suckling, Feb 2016
