Winemaker's Notes:

"Shows beautiful aromas of crushed raspberry, cherry, vanilla and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with ultrasilky tannins and a long, long finish. Fantastic. This is relatively new producer is doing things. Best after 2010."

About Terralsole:

Mario and Athena Bollag are the owners of Terralsole. She is a musician from San Francisco and he was born in Switzerland and trained as a lawyer. They both fell in love with Tuscany and each other and started Terralsole in 1997, planting two vineyards with a total of 15 acres. These two vineyards, Vigna Pian Bollolino and Vigna Fonte Lattaia are located in different terroirs of Montalcino so that the blending of the wine takes on a wonderful complexity. All grapes are hand picked and only the best clusters are used for this wine which spends a total of 24 months in barrel before bottling and another 6 months in bottle resting in their cool cellar before being released.
