Winemaker's Notes:

#31 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Intense rugy red color with garnet shades, limpid. The bouquet is etheral and complex, while the taste is potent with good structure, important tannins.

My Notes:

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.
