This is a textured, resonant style of Sangiovese typical of the Tuscan coast in its breadth and volume. The warmth and resonance of the vintage comes through in spades. Dark red cherries, licorice flesh out on the dark, savory finish. This is a fabulous effort for the year.

A pure expression of Sangiovese, the 2011 Perlato del Bosco is beautifully perfumed with accents of forest berry, red rose, candied cherry and dried lavender. The 2011 vintage definitely shows an elegant and feminine side... A pure expression of Sangiovese, the 2011 Perlato del Bosco is beautifully perfumed with accents of forest berry, red rose, candied cherry and dried lavender. The 2011 vintage definitely shows an elegant and feminine side with minute aromatic details that come into sharp focus as the wine airs in the glass. The mouthfeel is smooth and plump. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022. - Monica Larner

Aromas recall tilled soil, black berries and blue flower. The soft, plush palate offers plum, black cherry compote and black pepper alongside round tannins. It’s ready, so enjoy soon.

The nose is screams Tusacn Sangiovese with its intense and classic earthiness. Red currant, bing cherry and raspberry are accentuated by freshly cut flowers, dried garrigue, and loads of earthiness. Medium to medium plus bodied the palate shows rounded tannins that are actually more elegant than expected from this warm vintage. The underlying acidity gives excellent balance to the great QPR wine. This is ready to drink and can be enjoyed over the next 5-7 years.

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.
