Background

Today Tuscany is home to the Tolaini Estate, a winery that combines these ancient elements with modern winemaking. We are proud to practice sustainable farming to respect the environment and the biodiversity of our land. Pier Luigi Tolaini is the founder and visionary of the Tolaini estate and when he left his Tuscan home for America as a young man, he knew that one day he would return, buy some land and make great wine. Like the vineyards surrounding it, the winery at Tolaini Estate is an expression of both old and new. The best grapes are pre-selected by vineyard and again on the sorting table; only the best quality whole berries make it into 12 open top French oak 50 hl fermenters.
 


Tasting Notes

The team at Tolaini discovered that the spectacular clay and galestro soil, slope and exposition of Tolaini Montebello vineyard number 7 produced impeccable Sangiovese: pure in spirit, and transcendent in quality. Their mandate became clear: to create a single vineyard 100% Sangiovese, Chianti Classico Cru, a wine of extraordinary complexity, with a powerful aromatic signature and palate of explosive cherry, tobacco, leather, licorice and spice notes, with a firm, balanced structure of tannin and acidity, for a wine of both power and elegance. It merits the highest designation in the Classico DOCG.
