Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2010 Valadorna shows a dark core of ruby color with a very thin ruby meniscus. On the nose, concentrated and condensed smells of black cherry liquor, ripe black & red plum, and dried cranberry mark this wine as a ripe expression of Toscana IGT, while non-fruits of dried herbs, camphor, rose petal, and toasted baking spices add an aromatic lift. Each of these flavors is confirmed on the palate, with additional nuances of melted cocoa, toasted bread, and subtle quinine. Though driven with opulent fruit, the wine’s texture is balanced by firm Tuscan acidity, and bitter tannins, which are in control of the overall picture. The finish is balanced and mouth watering, with wet clay minerality.

Ratings & Reviews



93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This is settling into its stride now, with the tannins and acidity integrating with the supple texture, setting the stage for bright cherry, raspberry, sage and tar flavors. Still compact on the finish, with a lingering savory aftertaste. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2023. 1,634 cases made." – BS (Oct 31, 2015)
