Tua-Rita-Perlato-del-Bosco-2016

Tua Rita, Perlato del Bosco , 2016

Rita Tua and her husband, Virgilio Bisti, bought approximately 37.5 acres of land in 1984 and planted it with Cabernet and Merlot. They later purchased an additional 17.5 acres of land, bringing the total estate to 55 acres, of which about 45 are planted with vines. The winery released its first vintage in 1992, and soon began receiving praise and accolades from wine enthusiasts worldwide for its rich, full-bodied wines. In just five short years, its 100% Merlot had achieved cult-like status, receiving outstanding ratings from the world’s most prestigious wine critics and publications. Critic Robert M. Parker Jr. said the 1999 Redigaffi was “as close to perfection as a wine can get.” The following year, he gave the 2000 Redigaffi a perfect 100 score. The winery’s Bordeaux blend, Giusti di Notri, also garners near-universal praise. Little wonder that Tua Rita’s wines are considered among the most difficult to find in Italy.

“This is so fresh and bright with cherries, plums and hints of chocolate and hazelnuts. Medium body, fine tannins and a delicious finish. Super subtle and long. Polished. Savory. Pure sangiovese. Drink now.”

“The 2016 Perlato del Bosco, 100% Sangiovese, is plump, juicy and forward, all qualities that are typical of Sangioveses from the southern part of Maremma, and the Suvereto in particular. Varietal red Sangiovese fruit is nicely amped up in this generous, inviting wine. A touch of new oak frames the finish nicely.”

“In the microclimate of Suvereto, Tuscany, the 2016 vintage was warmer than 2015. Fruit for the 2016 Perlato del Bosco (100% Sangiovese) was harvested in mid-September. In fact, the clone used here is designed to produce lower yields as a way of countering the hot weather in this zone. Larger oak barrels were employed in order to produce a lighter toasting effect. The results are broad in scope, with floral and peppery aromas on the nose. Pair this mid-entry Tuscan red with roasted meats.”
