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

Youthful, rich dark fruit, berry and cassis aromas meld with notable French oak spice. On the palate, Valdisanti is full-bodied with deep but reserved fruit flavors framed by rich oak. The excellent balance of fruit intensity with fine tannins indicates a cellar worthy wine. Note: Some sediment may occur in the bottom of the bottle as the wine is not filtere. Aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and Chinese black tea. Full body with round and chewy tannins. A bit tight and lean but I like the focus and intensity for the vintage. Drink now. Rated 92 points James Suckling. 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
