"Another Bordeaux-inspired wine, the 2009 Valdisanti represents a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc (in that order of importance). Fruit is sourced from the Tenuta S. Giovanni. On the nose, it shows delicate embroidery of spice, dark fruit and smoked cedar. There's a dusty mineral dryness to the finish backed by lush layers of red berry fruit and dark chewing tobacco. The mouthfeel is polished and tight, with beautifully integrated tannins.  ... read more

"Tolaini's 2009 Valdisanti is a Sangiovese/Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc blend. Rich and voluptuous, the 2009 captures the very best qualities of the year in its resonant, expansive personality. Smoke, tobacco, licorice and melted road tar add an element of darkness on the finish."

"2009 Tolaini IGT Valdisanti is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Sangiovese and 5% Cabernet Franc aged 16 months in French oak barriques (70% new) and 12 months in bottle. Unfiltered, this Tuscan red offers rich aromas of dark berries, spice and oak on the nose. On the palate, intense fruit flavors with full body and fine tannins. " ~ Winery notes
About Tolaini Winery
The harvested grapes, once debunched, go through the optical selection machine where the grapes must meet the preset criteria to pass through: any small, green or squished grapes and all debris are ejected and only the ripe whole grapes make it into the vats. The vats are cooled to 5C-10C (41F - 50F) and the grapes are added whole to each tank for a cold soak before natural selected yeast strains are added to initiate fermentation. Vinification at Tolaini is done in 26 stainless steel temperature-controlled tanks with a two chamber system, while the best grapes from each harvest are fermented in open-top fermenters made of French Allier oak (12 units of 4500 liter capacity), a time-proven touch that increases the complexity in the wines. The generous array of tank sizes allows for individual parcels of grapes to be fermented and stored separately. These batches are kept apart through subsequent barrel aging in new French oak barrels between 18-25hl before blending.
