"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.

This is another fabulous set of wines from Tua Rita, with the exception of the Syrah, which falls a bit short of its customary level. To be honest, these days I am increasingly drawn to the entry and mid-level wines at Tua Rita because of their very favorable pricing and overall value. The biggest news at Tua Rita is the return of original consulting oenologist Luca D’Attoma, who oversaw much of the planting and made the first vintages." (WA)

Winery Notes:
WINE DESCRIPTION:
Perlato del Bosco is a blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon from estate vineyards around Suvereto. The grapes are harvested and vinified separately. Each year the blend is adjusted slightly to take advantage of vintage differences. The wine is aged for twelve months in second- and third-passage French oak barriques before release.

TASTING NOTES:
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.

FOOD PAIRING:
Try it with well-seasoned steak, game, pot roasts, or other slow-cooked meals.
