This is a fantastic red with so much cherry, currant, ash, tobacco, earth and walnut aromas. It’s full and layered with firm tannins that provide form, texture and structure. Linear and long. Really excellent for the vintage. Give it two or three years to come together, but already a beauty. Try after 2024.

A tightly packed red, evoking blackberry, black cherry, tar, tobacco and white pepper notes, aligned with a dense matrix of tannins. Well proportioned, this just needs time to relax and stretch out on the finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2024.

The 2018 Al Passo is another appealing wine in the Tolaini range. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon work well together in this blend. Bright and punchy, the 2018 bristles with energy from start to finish. Ripe red/purplish berry fruit, rose petal, spice, mint and blood orange build effortlessly.
