    A vibrant, lively red, this boasts cherry, raspberry and floral aromas and flavors, accented by toasty oak. Deftly balanced and persistent, firming up nicely in the end, with terrific length and freshness. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

    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.

    The 2018 Al Passo is another appealing wine in the Tolaini range. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon work well together in this blend. Bright and punchy, the 2018 bristles with energy from start to finish. Ripe red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, spice, mint and blood orange build effortlessly.

    JS9191 pts. - - Tuesday, October 27, 2020
    Aromas of plums, cherries and hints of balsamic and citrus fruit follow through to a medium body, light tannins and a fresh finish with lively acidity. Drink now.
    RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Apr 2021
    The Tolaini 2018 Chianti Classico Vallenuova has a sweet spot of fresh berry fruit and cherry that gives the wine immediate lift and accessibility. That cherry note is followed by plum, spice and tilled earth. Balanced acidity and freshness seal the deal. Pair this with your favorite red sauce on pappardelle and lots of cheese.
