2002 Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco Bianco Toscana IGT
100% Sangiovese from the Perlato del Bosco vineyard. The grapes are harvested in late September to early October. Maceration of the skins in contact with the must lasts approximately 15 to 18 days while manually punching down on the cap for extraction. The wine is aged for 20 months in oak barrels followed by 6 months in the bottle before release. Deep purple color with dark and very intense aromas of blackberry, cocoa and spice. Dense and spicy on the palate with a finish that lingers.
