2019 Tolaini Valdisanti
2019 Tolaini Valdisanti 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. Winemaker
From the estate’s Tenuta San Giovanni Vineyard, aged in oak for 16 months. The Tolaini 2019 Valdisanti is quite generous and rich, with thick layers of dark fruit, black cherry, pencil shaving, tar and licorice. Best After 2022. 94pts Parker’s Wine Advocate
A polished red, this offers plum, blackberry, black currant, leather and a hint of wild herb aromas and flavors. Balanced and harmonious, with refined tannins gracing the long, iron-tinged finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2024 through 2040.
These are some of the greatest wines coming out of Tuscany and some of the greatest Cabernet or Cabernet based red wine made today are coming out of Tuscany. They offer tremendous value for money and they are hugely popular with wine lovers. The great Super Tuscans Sassicia; Ornellaia and Solaia are all Cabernet based and are icons of the wine world rivalling the absolute best from Bordaux or Napa. Which brings me to today’s wine, Tolaini is making some of the finest Super Tuscans out there. Robert Parker comments “Tolaini is on a tear, making some of the best wines representing the Castelnuovo Berardenga.”
Their style is big rich and opulent. Castelnuova Berardenga is the southerly most commune in the Classico zone, an area known for delivering wines of such power that it has been compared to the Medoc’s most acclaimed appellation, Pauillac. Today I bring you there spectacular Tolaini Valdisanti 2019 which got massive 94 pts by Parker’s Wine Advocate and can be had for $32.99. The wine is a Cabernet based blend with Cabernet Franc. When did you last see a left bank Bordeaux or a Napa Cab that got 95pt by Wine Spectator under $32……. Maybe 25 years ago. This is a great buy! Loaded with dark cherries, blackberry pie, smoke, cedar and spice, this is big, bold and beautiful all rolled into one. Luscious texture and a dense, lingering finish showcase the depth and richness that this Tuscan house is known for. The quality is off the charts! Act Fast – First Come First Served!
