Tolaini, Valdisanti 2011
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.
James Suckling - "A refined and pretty wine with sliced plums and currants. Full body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Bordeaux blend. Drink or hold."
Wine Spectator - "Graphite and smoke aromas lead to black currant and blackberry fruit in this linear, firmly structured red. On the austere side, yet long and laserlike. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2017 through 2027."
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "A sumptuous, open-knit wine, the 2011 Valdisanti offers plenty of up-front appeal. Raspberry jam, succulent red cherries, flowers and cinnamon are all pushed forward in a radiant, supple Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend to drink over the next few years."
