Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco IGT 2012

Tuscany, Italy
PLCB Code# 78111

The 2012 Perlato del Bosco is Sangiovese from the sun drenched strip of land near the sea in Coastal Tuscany. This is a lovely wine with a savory and sophisticated take on Tuscany’s most important red grape variety. You get an immediate sense of the depth and the generosity inherent to Sangiovese. The mouthfeel exhibits soft tannins, snappy acidity and a full palate of bright red berry flavors. The cherry and cassis definition is especially evident in this warm vintage expression. -ML

Features a blast of cherry, raspberry and plum flavors, allied to a round, juicy frame. The tannins show on the finish, but there is much to like about this red. Fine length. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2022. –BS

Made entirely with Sangiovese, this offers aromas of blue flowers and wild berries. The firm palate delivers black cherry, black raspberry, white pepper and clove while a note of orange zest lifts up the finish. Firm, fine-grained tannins deftly support the juicy flavors. Drink 2016–2020.”

Dark berry aromas.  Ripe plum black raspberry fruit with pepper and tobacco upon a firm backbone of tannin and balancing acidity  This is much bigger than a typical Sangiovese-more like a Brunello.  A good value
