Dark raspberries, freshly cut flowers, tobacco and sweet spices all meld together in a gracious, perfumed wine. Supple, open and gracious, the 2010 Perlato del Bosco is a striking Maremma red to drink now and over the next few years. The purity of the fruit alone is striking, while the soft contours are hugely appealing as well. Sweet, perfumed notes ring out on the floral finish.

Very fresh sangiovese aromas of red berries, flint and tea leaf. Fresh and elegant in the mouth, with pretty redcurrant, red cherry and cinnamon flavors. The very long finish features peppery tannins, lingering juiciness and lovely saline tang. This is the best-ever Perlato del Bosco at a similar stage of development. Owner Stefano Frascolla told me that Perlato, which started life as a monovarietal sangiovese and then became a blend with the 2002 vintage, is now back on the road to becoming a 100%-varietal sangiovese again. The first comeback vintage made entirely from sangiovese will be the 2012, and this wine is likely to spend only 10 to 12 months in oak, instead of the current 14. - Ian D'Agata

Instead of feminine elegance, this wine shows muscle and brawn. It opens with a darkly concentrated appearance and a broad, wide-reaching bouquet with impressive complexity and elegance. Blackberry, cherry pie, polished river stone, leather and tobacco all play supporting roles. It feels tight and focused in the mouth with a long, fruit-forward finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. - Monica Larner

An oak-aged blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine shows bold nuances of blackberry and cherry, backed by tangy freshness and integrated oak spice. The wine is tangy and fresh, and it delivers silky tannins, plus drying notes of tobacco and crushed granite.

A wine with currants and milk chocolate character on the nose and palate. Full body, with a well-integrated tannin structure and a medium finish. 75% Sangiovese and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Better in 2014.

Winery

Tua Rita

Tua Rita, one of Italy’s first successful producers of vins de garage, was founded by Rita Tua and her husband Virgilio in 1984. They started with just 2 hectares of vineyard which they tended with scrupulous care. As a result, their vineyard had grown to 9 hectares in barely a decade and today, Tua Rita farms some thirty hectares planted to vine.

Tua Rita’s vineyards are located in the Cornia valley near Suvereto in the High Tuscan Maremma, in an area known as Metalliferous Hills. The soil composition of pebbles and stones as well as clay, silt and sand, with a generous helping of mineral trace elements, leaves a distinctive mark on Tua Rita’s wines, imparting unique iron-like nuances to the aromatics and lending the palate a delicious hint of saltiness.

This leading Tuscan estate is known for their famous 100% Merlot, Redigaffi, which has gained cult status, receiving praise and accolades from wine enthusiasts and even a perfect 100 score from wine critic Robert Parker. Their range of wines also includes their signature wine, Giusto di Notri, which is a classic Bordeaux blend; Per Sempre, a single-variety Syrah; Perlato del Bosco, a varietal Sangiovese beginning with the 2011 vintage; Rosso dei Notri, an entry-level wine; Lodano, an experimental white wine; and Perlato del Bosco Bianco.
