Tolaini Valdisanti Toscana 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Fragrant nose with a concentrated beam of ripe raspberry and black cherry with some milk chocolate and spicy earth notes
Full bodied, dense, and velvety on the palate
Long finish of plum, earth, and spice
What a beautifully-made super-Tuscan, and it won't break the bank. There's a great beam of fruit in the bouquet and interesting layers on the long finish. Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, it has enough Tuscan charm to give it a sense of place. Prices seem to vary widely on this wine, but I've most commonly seen it for around $25. Raise a glass!
