Notes from the Winemaker:
Perlato del Bosco is made entirely with Sangiovese from estate vineyards in Suvereto. The grapes are harvested and vinified in stainless steel before being aged for 12 months in a combination of French oak barriques and large barrels.

Tasting Notes:
Concentrated, dense, nearly opaque purple in color, Perlato del Bosco delivers tantalizing aromas of blackberries, black cherries, currants, ripe plums, tea leaves, exotic spices, and leather. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, this wine's enticing fruit flavors are accompanied by notes of anise, violets, and peppery spice, all of which are framed by fine-grained tannins.

Food Pairing: Pair this wine with grilled filets, Mornay sauces, roasted Cornish game hens, and duck confit risotto


Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A pure expression of Sangiovese, the Tua Rita 2019 Perlato del Bosco comes from what Stefano Frascolla calls "an odd but ultimately very easy vintage" in terms of farming. This is a historic entry-level red that has been made since 1992 and is closing in on its 30th anniversary. The wood regime that favors large oak cask was tweaked in 2002, and the wine delivers lots of primary intensity and varietal purity in its current incarnation. This is one of the most Sangiovese-tasting Sangioveses made on the Tuscan Coast, with wild berry, cherry and blue flower. Fruit comes from a 4.5-hectare plot." - Monica Larner (Oct 2021)

92 Points - James Suckling:
"Perfumed, with sweet-berry and orange-peel aromas follow through to a medium body with firm tannins and a tangy, lightly bitter orange undertone. Drink now." (Aug 2021)

91 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Though light-bodied, this red delivers strawberry, cherry, almond, iron and tomato leaf aromas and flavors. Juicy, persistent and backed by a spine of dense tannins. Features fine balance and length. Best from 2024 through 2036. 3,333 cases made, 350 cases imported." - BS (web only 2023)
