This is my first experience drinking this offering from Tua Rita and I was impressed. A charming wine offering flavors of black cherries, smoke, tobacco and anise with spice notes coming out on the finish. Nicely balanced and approachable with good acidity and well-integrated tannins. Definitely decant this for at least an hour.

Concentrated, dense, and opaque in color with purple reflections, Perlato del Bosco delivers tantalizing aromas of blackberry, cherry liqueur, currants, ripe plums, damson fruit, tea leaves, incense, and leather, which continue to unfold on the palate. Rich and full-bodied, this enticing red is framed by fine tannins and concludes with a long, evolving finish of anise, violets, and peppery spice. Try it with well-seasoned steak, game, pot roasts, or other slow-cooked meals.
The 2010 Perlato del Bosco explodes from the glass with the energy and sheer power that is typical of the year. Dark red berries, licorice and smoke are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. There is a sense of underlying tension here that is palpable, and that gives the wine much of its focus. This is a great vintage for Perlato del Bosco. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
(an 80/20 blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon; 14% alcohol): Opaque dark red. 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.
