Tignanello Toppler...Ornellaia Ouster...Sassicaia Squasher! These are just a few of the images that came to mind when we tasted the impressive 2010 Picconero Super-Tuscan from Tolaini.
Picconero is the winery's flagship red produced only in the best vintages using only the estate's best grapes...and 2010 was a blockbuster! Let's be clear. Tignanello, Sassicaia and Ornellaia are outstanding wines. So, you can imagine how stunning this red blend is for us to make such bold statements.
A Tre Bicchieri, Gambero Rosso winner (Italy's highest honor), this seductive Super-Tuscan is rich, concentrated and muscular; the wine is wonderfully balanced with tiers of concentrated fruits, berries and spices. Dedicated to producing wines in
the tradition of First Growth Bordeaux, Tolaini selects only the best quality Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Verdot grapes for Picconero.
With only 75 cases making their way across the Atlantic, you will kick yourself if you don't put this on your table or in your cellar. Enjoy now or age for another ten years.
