Tolaini Tenuta Montebello Picconero Toscana 2004 750ml

Tolaini Tenuta Montebello Picconero Toscana

94 Point Wine Enthusiast: The 2004 Picconero is a big, concentrated wine packed with layers of super-ripe dark fruit, cassis, chocolate, licorice and sweet toasted oak. Rich and ample on the palate, it offers excellent depth as well as fine overall balance. As with the previous wines, the tannins come across as lacking polish.

Tolaini Estate is a great Tuscan property rooted deeply in regional tradition but open to outside influences. The Estate's objective is to produce a great wine without compromise, in the tradition of First-Growth Bordeaux. For Tolaini Estate this wine is Picconero. Only in exceptional vintages will Tolaini and Rolland approve production of this flagship wine. The name derives from picco meaning peak and nero meaning black in deference to the Italian custom of using the term nero for red-skinned grapes. Picconero is blended from the finest selections of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot to form a full bodied, complex and elegant wine with many years of potential bottle development.

Pier Luigi Tolaini's energy and passion for excellence saw him build a transportation and logistics company that ranks among North America's best. But it was to be almost half a century before he returned to his roots to make great wine. Pier Luigi's 4-year search for a top Tuscan vineyard brought him to Chianti Classico, to the prestigious region of Castelnuovo Berardenga, and to the properties at Montebello and San Giovanni. When Pier Luigi first set foot on the amphitheatre- shaped vineyard at Montebello, he knew he had found the perfect balance of climate, soil, and exposure.
