Pier Luigi attracted enologist Michel Rolland, famous for high quality, sensual, full-bodied wines, to consult with Tolaini Estate. Rolland was taken by Pier Luigi's personal commitment to excellence and, most importantly, the potential of the vineyards and winery. At the beginning, the consulting agronomist for the estate was the well-respected Tuscan Andrea Paoletti. Together Pier Luigi and Michel formed a team of exceptional enologists/agronomists. Each member of the young Tolaini enological team has graduated from enology or agronomy school and has worked in varied wine regions allowing their international experience to meld with the vision and terroir of Tolaini. Today Francesco Rosi is the head enologist at Tolaini and responsible for the direction of all our wines. After several experiences working for some of Tuscany's most prestigious wineries, in March 2011 Francesco was hired at Tolaini as head Enologist and Manager of the winery.
Ruggero Mazzilli is Tolaini's consulting agronomist and is based in Gaiole in Chianti where he is the owner and founder of SPEVIS (The Experimental Station for Sustainable Viticulture). SPEVIS works with the best scientific research institutes to find new solutions to practical vineyard issues by following the principles of organic agriculture and respectful environmental practices.
Tolaini will continue to cultivate the maximum expression of Chianti Classico terroir while farming organically and sustainably.
