95 Point Wine Spectator, Sub-$30 Super Tuscan

No time for eggnog at Avalon headquarters–we're busy sneaking in one of the best red wine values of the year while it's still 2021. Wine Spectator Insider dropped a whopper yesterday for another Tolaini Super Tuscan: 2018 Valdisanti. 95 points, the special "Hot Wine" designation, and only $26.95. We cracked a bottle this morning and it's way better than eggnog–in fact it is fantastic and an exceptional value, too. Load up while you can. Many thanks for your support this year–cheers to 2022!

Tolaini Toscana Tenuta San Giovanni Valdisanti 2018
$26.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($29.95 regular)

95 points Wine Spectator, "Hot Wine: "A vibrant, lively red, this boasts cherry, raspberry and floral aromas and flavors, accented by toasty oak. Deftly balanced and persistent, firming up nicely in the end, with terrific length and freshness. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2024 through 2042."

Us: The note above is great but as usual, we find the '18 Valdisanti to be deliciously drinkable already–no need to wait thanks to excellent balance. Cook your favorite roast or try this sugo di carne recipe from a long-time Portland favorite; we've been making a batch almost weekly!
