2016 Perlato del Bosco Rosso, Tua Rita, Tuscany, Italy
A wonderful expression of the vineyard’s location in this lovely vintage. Elegant and exuberant now, its texture is silky and delectable, displaying pot pourri, lavender, sour cherry and summer fruits. The velvety tannins are balanced by a bright, refreshing acidity. A truly fabulous Sangiovese from coastal Tuscany.
The winemaking process for the Perlato del Bosco includes ageing time in “tino troncoconico di rovere” (conical oak vats) and barriques.
“The wines are not to be missed” Robert Parker
Tua Rita continues its inexorable rise to the top of Italy’s most collectable estates. 2016 will go down in history as one of the great vintages in Tuscany, where quality looks to have surpassed even the exceptional 2015s. Proprietor, Stefano Frascolla, is extremely pleased with the overall power and precision of the vintage, which he compares to the superlative 2001 and 2007 vintages. Overall, the wines express stunning perfume and elegance, despite their obvious structural power.
