Lots of smoke, cigar, toasty oak and warm acidity on this robust Tuscan red wine. Aromas of black cherry and chary tobacco. Pair with smoked meats.

Reviews and Ratings
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A delicious extra-dry blend of Sangiovese and Cab Sauv, with a mild nose of mulberry and leather notes. Lots of flavour on the palate, with bright cherry, vanilla, cedar, eucalyptus, mint. Medium-to-full-bodied, extra dry with smooth, silky tannins and good acidity, making this a very versatile wine with food. Elegant layered finish. Excellent value!

|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby, nice intensity on the nose with dark cherry and berry along with spice, herb and vanilla notes. Nice balance of acidity, fine tannins and fruit repeating the nose. Tasted blind February 2016
|Jane LeFresne rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This wine is all about cooked red berries, cherry, raspberry and even hints of strawberry. There are also notes of chocolate ,vanilla and herbs. The wine has a medium finish with grippy tannins and a sour cherry flavour.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
More fruit forward than some other Chianti Classico, but nice fruit and floral notes, including cherry and strawberry, and almost a bit of a soapy note. Tart cherry on the palate and a medium finish with some nice acidity. Try with pork sausage or red meat dishes.
|Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Offers plush, jammy plums and blackberry on the nose, along with, mocha, vanilla, smoke, anise, and cigar box. Shows nice restraint on the palate, offering fresh blackberry and dark cherry, with the oaky notes repeating. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and moderate acidity. This Chianti Classico would be a hit with lovers of big, plush, new-world style wines. Tasted blind, Feb. 2016.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Ruby colour with an ample bouquet of sweet spices, leather and dark cherry aromas. This is a basic, easy on the palate Chianti with a good balance of acidity and tannins and a medium finish. Pair with a mushroom risotto or pasta Bolognese.
|The name of this wine Toscolo translates to Tuscan boy. Good structure, versatility with food and bouquet. Oenologist of Franco Bernabei. - Community Wine Reviews|
