The Antinori estate remains to be one of the oldest and most prestigious of wineries throughout Italy. Remarkably it is now the family's 26th generation that has taken over the reigns- there can be very few wineries in the World that can make that kind of claim. Probably most famous for their range of Chianti wines from Northern Italy which we showcase on the site, they also have well established wineries further South around Orvieto; more centrally near Montalcino and on the West Coast near Bolgheri.
As you would expect from the house of Antinori this is an exceptional well made red wine. An intense nose full of red currants, cherry and spice is perfectly followed by a savoury palate full of gentle tannins and structure. There's just a touch of roasted oak in the back palate just to round everything off as well.
1870 Sour Cocktail Recipe
The Sour Cocktail is versatile – whether you decide to switch up the Whisky, sour or sweet element, the end result will almost always be delicious – just remember to stick to that golden ratio of 2 parts Whisky, 1 part sour and 1 part sweet (but hey, if your personal preference is different, you do you!). The 1870 Sour, also known as the New York Sour ,updates the Whiskey Sour recipe (whiskey, lemon, sugar, egg white) with a float of dry red wine. (Psst, a float is when you suspend the final ingredient on top of the drink!). Everyone loves a good layered cocktail. They are fun to make and look amazing in photos - perfect for Instagram. The New York sour has been around longer than any living human. It’s thought that this cocktail was created around the 1870s/1890's - certainly a modern classic! If you’re after something sweeter, bourbon or brandy are both great options. Prefer a smokier sour? A scotch will be your go-to. When it comes to the sour substitution, lime is a more subtle option if you find lemon too overpowering, alternatively you can opt for a sweeter pick like orange or a more savoury choice like grapefruit. And when it comes to the egg white and no egg white debate, well, it’s completely up to you!
