The Character

Overall Sensual & Rich
Aromas Cherry, plums, wild berries; nuances of spice, vanilla and licorice
Mouthfeel Concentrated & Muscular
Tasting Notes Rich, concentrated and muscular, yet wonderfully balanced with big tannins and deep tiers of cherry, plums and wild berries, and nuances of spice, vanilla and licorice. A long flavorful aftertaste echoes with juicy fruit and mouthwatering tannins for minutes afterwards. Sensual and young, this wine promises a long life in the bottle. Note: Some sediment may occur in the bottom of the bottle as the wine is not filtered
Selling Point This wine promises a long life in the bottle

About Tolaini

Brand Story

Pier Luigi Tolaini, a native of Tuscany, immigrated to Canada in 1956. He planned to work for a few years, make some money, then go back home, buy a farm, marry his high school sweetheart and make some good wine. It took Pier Luigi 45 years before he returned with a clear vision of the high quality wine he wanted to make: one of Italy's best, no less. In 1998 he returned to his native land and purchased some of the best land in the region of Chianti Classico in the noted commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga.
