Background

Pierluigi Tolaini, a native of Tuscany, immigrated to Canada and enjoyed over 45 years of success in America as an entrepreneur. He returned to his native land in 1998 and purchased 90 hectares of the best land available in the Chianti Classico region of Castelnuovo Berardenga. He constructed, from the roots up, this state-of-the-art winery with the intention of bringing the best technology and winemakers together to bring to light wines that would be a modern expression of this significant region. Pierluigi hired famed enologist Michel Rolland who together with his team have a vested interest in making the best wines by implementing modern winemaking techniques with a vitally unique ingredient: Tuscan terroir.

Tasting Notes

Spicy notes of French oak rise above distinct aromas of cherry and berry. The palate has a backbone of Sangiovese, a roundness of Merlot and enhanced body from the oak. The fruit purity and varietal signatures are testament to the meticulous care given to the young vines. Note: Some sediment may occur in the bottom of the bottle as the wine is not filtered.
