The Wines

At Tolaini Winery organic principles are applied by incorporating modern technology, sparing usage of sulfites and a sterile environment all while honoring the traditions of this historic region. It was Lia’s desire to make wines that are pure in Sangiovese fruit, with balanced tannins, wines to enjoy every day.

Chianti Classico D.O.C.G.

Bramosia means “desire” in Italian and as artist Rik Olsen has illustrated on the label, the underlying theme here is romance. Bacchus and Venus make great company, but the magic begins only when Cupid strikes.

Chianti Riserva D.O.C.G.

The name Alteo is a combination of the names of owner Lia Tolaini-Banville’s sons, Alessandro and Matteo. The painting is a detail of Bacchus from artist Rik Olsen’s Bramosia painting. Bacchus symbolizes the mischievous nature of her sons, thus a fitting image for Alteo.

I.G.T. Toscana Rosso

The name Ali means “wings” in Italian and is also the name of the winery owner Lia Tolaini-Banville’s “little angel”: her daughter. The artwork from the label is a detail of Cupid from the original artwork for the Bramosia Chianti Classico label by Rik Olsen.

Rosato I.G.T.

Made from 100% Sangiovese, the grapes are harvested at the end of August. The bunches are selected in the fields and by an optical sorter as soon as they arrive at the cellar. Then the berries are crushed and the juice is left in contact with the skins for 2 hours. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.
