2018 Tolaini 'Picconero' Tenuta Montebello Tuscany
Winemaker Notes: Rich, concentrated and muscular, yet wonderfully balanced with big tannins and deep tiers of cherry, plums and wild berries, and nuances of spice, vanilla and licorice. A long flavorful aftertaste echoes with juicy fruit and mouthwatering tannins for minutes afterwards. Sensual and young, this wine promises a long life in the bottle.
Blend: 100% Merlot
James Suckling - "This is aromatic with blackberries and toasted oak, as well as some cloves and pepper. It’s full-bodied with solid tannins and a long, flavorful finish. This needs time to soften and come together. Better after 2025. "
Wine Spectator - "A lush, polished style, featuring plum, blackberry, coffee, tobacco, iron and toasty oak flavors. Firm yet fluid, with fine harmony and fine-grained tannins gracing the long finish. Merlot. Drink now through 2030."
