Michel Rolland consults on winemaking.
Tolaini Valdisanti is dark ruby red in color with a beautiful nose of wild raspberries, cherries, vanilla, leather and dried flowers. Very rich and full-bodied with silky tannins, this red offers flavors of black cherry, cassis, coffee and spice. Aged for 16 months in French oak, it is beautifully balanced to enjoy now or to cellar for 12-15 years. The finish is rich, long and polished.
Enjoy Tolaini Valdisanti with veal, pasta, osso bucco, and aged cheeses.
