First released in 2003, this flagship Tuscan red from top winemaker Paolo Masi has since won much acclaim worldwide. Made from Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah and part aged in new oak, it is full and silky with mocha hints blending with dark spice fruit.
Paolo Masi is one of Tuscany'sbrightest stars, producing award winning wines each vintage. One of his finest releases is I Pini, not typically Tuscan, but of the highest quality. Paolo took over the 3rd generation family estate in the premium Rufina district in 1992 and has, since then, been upgrading the cellar and researching his 30 hectares of vines to select the best clones of each variety and matching them with their ideal terroir. He is meticulous about every aspect of production. And it shows in both the fabulous quality of the wines and the scores they achieve. I Pini is a supreme Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah, aged in part new French oak to lend a rich layer of chocolaty vanilla spice to the dense fruit. Ideal with game or red meats.
