This sumptuously rich Italian red is one of our latest discoveries on the Tuscan coast. Here, Luca and Flavio Nuti go above and beyond to make the sort of generous, oaked reds that we adore. And their fruit-filled Vallino doesn’t disappoint.
The Nutis’ wine journey started in the 1900s, producing reds solely for the family table. Over a century later, brothers Luca and Flavio Nuti use the same old vines (and generations of expertise) to craft sought after reds that delight customers across Italy. Like this silky, rich Super Tuscan. With recognition at global competitions and multiple 90+ point scores, Vallino is a testament to decades of hard work and the duo’s passionate, quality obsessed approach. Mainly ripe Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of juicy Sangiovese, it delivers luscious flavours of plum, blackcurrant and raspberry, followed by notes of chocolate, tobacco and vanilla, all thanks to 12 months in fine French oak. All in all, a red that punches well above its weight.
"Ripe and dark fruit tones with ample spice, tar and tobacco. Richness and concentration"
