The goal of Pier Luigi Tolaini is to produce a great wine without compromise in the style of the distinguished Bordeaux Chateaux. Picconero is produced only in the best vintages, and only from the fruit of the best parcels of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.The name derives from picco meaning peak and nero meaning black in deference to the Italian custom of using the term nero for red-skinned grapes. This is a rich, complex and muscular, yet balanced wine with deep tiers of cherry, plums and wild berriess, and nuances of spice and currants. Picconero is a cellar-worthy wine.
Clear, ruby-red with garnet highlights.
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.
