    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2022
    A vibrant, lively red, this boasts cherry, raspberry and floral aromas and flavors, accented by toasty oak.

    Crazy nose of blackberries and red chilies follow through to a full-bodied palate with chewy yet polished tannins that expand in the mouth, giving it a velvety texture. Extremely long and flavorful. Turns compact. Give it time to open. Try in 2024.

    The 2018 Valdisanti is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Cabernet Franc. Vibrant and nuanced, it offers up an exotic array of blackberry, lavender, spice, mocha, new leather and licorice, all in a mid-weight style that balances richness and energy. This, too, is nicely done.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#54808

    SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2021
    Well-defined black cherry and blackberry flavors are shaded by notes of rosemary, eucalyptus, iron and tobacco in this firm and complex red, which shows lovely balance and grip on the lingering aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2036. 10,000 cases made, 8,000 cases imported.

    The 2018 Legit is a bold, punchy wine that marries varietal aromas and flavors with Castelnuovo Berardenga richness. It’s a combination that works quite well. Blue/black fruit, gravel, spice, dried herbs, lavender and chocolate are front and center in this juicy, open-knit Cabernet Sauvignon. (Antonio Galloni)

  4. Tolaini Picconero

    Tenuta Montebello
    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#55341

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 19th Sep 2019
    The 2015 Picconero Tenuta Montebello is a blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc that pours out lots of dark fruit and plum. This is a very nice, juicy and balanced wine with good thickness, a great match for iron steak and blue cheese butter sauce. In general, I’ve found these wines from Tolini to be top notch, with succulent tones of ripe fruit and pretty intensity. This one is at the top of the pyramid, and I’m guessing 2016 in particular could be even better. They released about 9,000 bottles of this vintage.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2019
    Packed with sweet, ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit, this red is lush and polished, accented by rosemary, thyme, graphite and oak spice notes. Dusty tannins line the finish. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2021 through 2033. 800 cases made, 150 cases imported.
    JS9393 pts. - - Thursday, November 7, 2019
    Aromas of violets, lavender and blackberries follow through to a full body with firm and chewy tannins. A lot of wood showing now, but will come together with age. Try after 2021.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2020
    The 2015 Picconero, 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, is powerful and super-concentrated in feel. Dark fruit, chocolate, mocha, leather, licorice and smoke flavors abound. I admire the wine’s depth and overall persistence, even if the tannins are likely to always be equally prominent. This is a decidedly heavily-extracted style. It is possible the formidable tannins will soften in time.
