Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant ruby color, elegant bouquet of violets, berry fruit and iris confirmed on a soft, round, well balanced palate showing good body, fruity flavors and intensity.

An all-around food wine to match first courses, red and white meat, cheese.

About Toscolo:

Think Tuscan. That's Toscolo, Neil & Maria Empson's labor of love from a longtime passion for this extraordinary region. The name itself is a tribute to Tuscany: a Renaissance Italian word, it means "Tuscan boy." The Empsons chose their friend and star oenologist Franco Bernabei to style the wines with Neil himself. Nothing was left to chance in order to make the Empsons' proprietary brand their ideal Tuscan credentials. Maria Gemma Empson personally designed the ultraclassic packaging and the wines' characteristic "ancient seal," bearing the features of the eponymous "Tuscan boy."
