The Super Tuscan super value, Tolaini Al Passo, is back to claim its throne. But can it be as good as last year's release? It can and it is! The same scores and praise, plus it passes our rigorous taste test, Al Passo 2017 is on track for a repeat performance as our Italian red value of the year.
If you've dabbled even a little bit in Italian reds or if you're just a serious bargain-hunter, this is a no-brainer. Grab 6, 12, 24–you'll be stoked to have this on hand whenever the meatballs, pizza, or pasta demands it. Load up!

Us: A delicious, outstanding value, it's so easy to love because of the perfect blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet, and Merlot in equal parts.
94 points James Suckling: "A beautiful, ripe wine, offering plums and chocolate, as well as tile and walnuts. It's full and layered with beautiful fruit and caressing tannins. Rock on."
92 points Vinous: "Open-knit and pliant, with soft curves, the 2017 offers tons of immediacy. Cedar, tobacco, dried herbs and macerated cherry all meld together in an inviting, mid-weight Tuscan red to drink over the next decade or so."
