March 25, 2016 - Has a little earth initially, but berry notes with mostly cherry on the nose. Great wine that opens up after an hour. Definitely hang on to this one a bit

November 29, 2015 - Consumed over 3 days (vacuvined), note from day 3. Nose: Medium expressiveness, pine needles, blueberry, cherry, lavender, and hints of cinnamon and earth. Palate: Medium-full bodied, sweet blue fruit and spice attack, definite mid-palate persistence, and great front to back harmony - no rough edges here. Finish: Lengthy sense of sweet blue fruit and acidic driven pine needle flavors. This held up remarkably well over 3 days, speaks volumes to what Maggie is doing here at Antica Terra.

June 10, 2015 - Disappointing, to say the least. Previous vintages were big plush wines. The 2011, however, is thin and seriously lacking in anything memorable. At $75, this is not a good value.
