The Mollydooker Two Left Feet combines the best elements of Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in a seamless blend. The Merlot has perfumed fruit while the Shiraz brings richness as well as depth and the Cabernet provides firm tannins and dark blackberry flavors. The combination creates great complexity but also great length, mocha and spice are the lasting flavors but each new taste shows more attractive fruit and delicious flavors.
A mix of brambly red berry fruit on the nose with paprika, roasted red pepper, stewed plum, black cherry, dark chocolate and violet along with some sweet vanillin pastry crust. The palate is dry, full bodied and has nice vibrant mixed red and black brambly berry fruit, crisp acidity, the punch of blackberry, juiciness of plum, blueberry, smooth tannins and dark chocolate, dried thyme and some dusty earth. Try with venison sausages with a sweet cassis sauce. Rhys Pender, Master of Wine
Styled after the great wines of Bordeaux, the Tolaini Picconero represents a blend of Merlot (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from the estate’s Tenuta Montebello. The wine opens with an inky dark appearance and follows to the nose with dark fruit, blackberry preserves, prune, tobacco and leather. Again, like the other wines of this estate, what really stands out is how elegantly these wines perform in the mouth. Picconero is tight and structured, but never heavy or sticky. Lingering tones of cigar box and Indian spice add complexity to the finish.
Guidalberto is a second wine from the producers of the legendary Sassicaia. Grapes are harvested and transported to an independent cellar. Fermentation takes place separately for each variety in temperature-controlled steel vats before undergoing maceration. The wine is aged in French and American oak barrels and refined in bottle before release.
