Winery Notes:
Neil and Maria Empson’s toscanissimo Toscolo brand was born in 1988 from the couple’s longtime passion for this extraordinary region. A Renaissance Italian word, meaning “Tuscan boy”, the name itself is a tribute to Italy. The Empsons chose their friend and leading enologist Franco Bernabei to style the wines, along with Neil. Maria Gemma Empson personally designed the Toscolo packaging and the brand’s emblem, a classic seal depicting the Tuscan boy.

Moderate ageing in oak (6 months) does not stifle the freshness and fragrance of this delightful red.

Brilliant ruby color, elegant nose of berry fruit, violets and iris, soft, silky-textured palate with abundant fruit, good body, intensity and balance.
