Antica Chardonnay Napa Valley (Antinori Estate) 2016  - Last Bottle

Antica Chardonnay Napa Valley (Antinori Estate) 2016

Napa Chard lovers --- we dug deep for you today...94-POINTER, beautifully-made Chardonnay goodness for far less than rest of the non-LB client world pays! Barely enough here to even do an, we're headed over to Donner Lake right now with 3 bottles chillin' in the Yeti!

Antica is owned by the Antinori family of Tuscany. Antinori can trace its wine roots back to a staggering 1385. 1385! They played a massive role in the Super-Tuscan revolution in the 70s (Tignanello, Solaia, to name a few) and now are making world-class wine all over the world, including Napa. High above the Valley at the very top of Soda Canyon Road, the winery and vineyards were barely spared during our awful 2017 fires. It’s a serene place, and the tiny amount of wine made there is very special indeed.

This walks a beautiful line of lush and clean. It has deep flavors of rich white fruits and a touch of tropicality, but then, like a flash of electricity, the acidity and clean, pure lemony, citrusy tang pops in. SO GOOD! Drink it, and drink it again. We are! Man, it’s better than a couple shots of espresso! Woo hoo!

WICKED price for a 94-point Napa Chard. That’s all we’re going to say!! First come, first served…!

About The Producer

The name Antica originates from the words Antinori and California, and represents the Antinori family’s longstanding desire to craft exceptional estate wines that are a true expression of Napa Valley terroir.

The Antinori’s family’s 26 generations of winemaking history has long been synonymous with the famed winegrowing regions of Tuscany and Umbria. Today, their wines are among the most recognized and highly rated of Italy.

But the Marchese Piero Antinori and his daughters, Albiera, Allegra and Alessia, are also known for seeking out the undiscovered potential of specific wine regions while staying true to the tradition, culture and taste of Antinori wines.
