Plenty of plum berry and chocolate character with some spice. Medium to full body, chewy tannins yet polished and extremely fine. I love the palate to this. Sangiovese. Drink now or hold. Made from organic grapes.

The mid-weight 2015 Perlato del Bosco is a pure expression of Sangiovese that boasts the warmth and sunshine of Coastal Tuscany. The wine offers thick layers of fruit and spice that you would get, say, with Sangiovese from cooler inland areas with vineyards planted at higher altitudes over sea level. Bright cherry and wild raspberry transition to toasted almond, licorice and grilled herb. - Monica Larner

A mix of bright cherry fruit, wild herb and oak spice flavors is backed by a solid structure in this red. Balanced, this should come together nicely in a year or two. Fine length. Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2028. ... A mix of bright cherry fruit, wild herb and oak spice flavors is backed by a solid structure in this red. Balanced, this should come together nicely in a year or two.

Varietal flavors are amped up in this racy, voluptuous red from Tua Rita. Succulent red cherry, plum, new leather and licorice add shades of nuance, but this is a decidedly forward, fruit-driven style. I would prefer to drink the 2015 sooner rather than later. At present, the 2015 shows a bit of new oak and is still recovering from its recent bottling a few months ago. I would prefer to cellar it for at least another 6 months. -- Antonio Galloni

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.
