The stunning 2011 Percarlo (Sangiovese) has been in bottle for one and a half years. Some 30% of the fruit this year was discarded because summer heat burned many of the berries. Great work was done at the sorting table to make sure that only the best berries were selected for this wine. That hard work has paid off because this is a profound expression of Sangiovese with sweet and soft contours of cherry and blackberry. The wine shows enormous complexity of character and a perfect sense of balance between its masculine and feminine side. It needs another five years of cellar aging.

Vivid, with cherry, spice and leather flavors. Woody tannins build on the finish, leaving this on the dry side overall. Food will help tame the tannins. Best from 2018 through 2026. 800 cases made.
