New line of Tolloy -the best wines from the Italian Dolomites

As the saying goes “good things always come in three’s” – and we couldn’t agree more!

That’s why Tolloy is so excited to present its first full line with the release of the new vintages of Pinot Grigio, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc.

These three varietals are prime examples of the type of rich, aromatic and complex wines that can only be cultivated in the heart of the Italian Dolomites. The three Tolloy varietals are grown in a perfect atmosphere with the perfect mixture of the cool valley temperatures of the Dolomites and the warm winds that sweep from the southerly Lake Garda.

· The 2008 Pinot Grigio is a complex wine with a crisp, yet brilliant freshness and ample bouquet due to the careful vinification of the grapes.
· The 2008 Sauvignon Blanc has a strikingly fragrant nose with a gentle hint of jasmine and a slight minerality that lingers on the palate – a result of careful hand-harvesting and modern vinification techniques.
· The 2007 Pinot Noir has a fragrant nose of wild berries with a soft balsamic and vanilla finish that comes from aging in oak for 12 months.

As a converging point of cultures from both the North and South, this region of Northern Italy has a dynamic history of producing top quality single varietals. Tolloy’s international taste profile definitely is showcased in this new line with all three varietals exemplifying the best of the Dolomites.
