Tolaini Al Passo 2009

WS 88 JS 93 V 92
Spicy notes of French oak rise above distinct aromas of cherry and berry. The palate has a backbone of Sangiovese, a roundness of Merlot, and an enhanced body from the oak. The fruit purity and varietal signatures are testament to the meticulous care given to the young vines. Note: Some sediment may occur in the bottom of the bottle as the wine is not filtered. 80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot. In 1998 Pierluigi Tolaini returned to his native land and purchased some of the best land in the region of Chianti Classico in the noted commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga. He constructed, from the roots up, this state-of-the-art winery and brought together the best technology and winemakers to bring to light wines that would be a true expression of this significant region. Pierluigi hired famed enologist Michel Rolland and Tuscan agronomist Andrea Paoletti, who put together a team that share Pierluigi's vision—to make the best wines possible with one vitally unique ingredient: Chianti Classico terroir. A true marriage of tradition and modern technology. The belief in the "best fruit produces the best wine" is the fundamental principal of the Tolaini estate. High density planting per 2.5 acres and low yield per plant is a proven strategy worldwide in producing excellent-quality fruit. With up to 11,500 plants per 2.5 acres in the less hilly vineyards, drip irrigation for each plant, and two green harvests to preselect the healthiest and most promising bunches on the vine, the Tolaini property produces fruit of unsurpassable quality. This fruit is evident in every mouthful of the estate's four red wines.
