Tasting Notes

Pierluigi Tolaini, a native of Tuscany, immigrated to Canada and enjoyed over 45 years of success in America as an entrepreneur. He returned to his native land in 1998 and purchased 90 hectares of the best land available in the Chianti Classico region of Castelnuovo Berardenga. He constructed, from the roots up, this state-of-the-art winery with the intention of bringing the best technology and winemakers together to bring to light wines that would be a modern expression of this significant region. Pierluigi hired famed enologist Michel Rolland who together with his team have a vested interest in making the best wines by implementing modern winemaking techniques with a vitally unique ingredient: Tuscan terroir.

The wine exhibits an intense and enticing bouquet of ripe fruits and spicy oak that leads to a balanced medium-bodied palate with ripe fruit and fresh acidity. While Al Passo drinks well upon release, it has potential for several years of bottle development.
