93 Point Wine Spectator:Rich, concentrated and muscular, yet wonderfully balanced with big tannins and deep tiers of cherry, plums and wild berries, and nuances of spice, vanilla and licorice. A long flavorful aftertaste echoes with juicy fruit and mouthwatering tannins for minutes afterwards. Sensual and young, this wine promises a long life in the bottle. Note: Some sediment may occur in the bottom of the bottle as the wine is not filtered.
olaini 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.
