Tolaini Valdisanti 2020

Product description

An elegant, structured and full-bodied wine with rich dark berry fruit and cassis aromas, the lush fruit framed by balanced oak. The elegant, structured tannins help to make this a cellar-worthy wine.

94 Points - Vinous

The 2020 Valdisanti is superb in this vintage. Rich, dark and sumptuous, this blend is alluring right out of the gate. Inky dark fruit, grilled herbs, leather, new oak, licorice and mocha are nicely dialed up.

93 Points - James Suckling

A medium-bodied red with currant, berry, and sandalwood aromas and flavors. It’s slightly chewy but shows polish and tension.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Tolaini 2020 Valdisanti is a 50-50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from a vineyard called Tenuta San Giovanni. This is an especially intense and smooth red blend that shows impressive and seamless integration. You get the dark intensity of both grapes used in the blend framed by the sweet spice and toast of aging in French oak. This vintage carries especially broad shoulders and offers extra richness.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast

An undertone of Bing cherries provides pop on an otherwise earthy, metallic nose. Orange zest brings out the cherries' subtle sourness on the palate, while strong acid and heat keep things lively until a structured, tannic finish.

92 Points - Wine Spectator

An intense red, with graphite, spice and tar aromas complementing concentrated blackberry, blueberry, wild rosemary and mineral flavors. Reveals burly tannins that are assertive, yet not overly astringent at this youthful stage. Compact finish.
