Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco Rosso 2012


SKU 12008


Tua Rita is a family-run winery which has garnered great fame for its Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah-based reds. Produced since the 1992 harvest, Perlato del Bosco is now made of 100% pure Sangiovese, after an 8 year period of being made of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in 50% in once and twice-used French oak barriques; 50% in 35-hl tapered oak vats, this has a lovely purity and a great sense of energy. The oak treatment is very balanced and just how we like it. Serve with pasta with red meat sauces, roasted meats, veal milanese, wood fired pizza, cheeses with olives and more.

Wine EnthusiastMade entirely with Sangiovese, this offers aromas of blue flowers and wild berries. The firm palate delivers black cherry, black raspberry, white pepper and clove while a note of orange zest lifts up the finish. Firm, fine-grained tannins deftly support the juicy flavors. Drink 2016–2020.

VinousThe 2012 Perlato del Bosco brings together classic Sangiovese flavors with the breadth and power that are typical of the wines of Suvereto. An exceptionally balanced and harmonious wine, the 2012 is built on a core of deeply expressive fruit. Today, the flavors are naturally quite primary, but greater complexity will develop with further time in bottle.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Perlato del Bosco is Sangiovese from the sun drenched strip of land near the sea in Coastal Tuscany. This is a lovely wine with a savory and sophisticated take on Tuscany's most important red grape variety. You get an immediate sense of the depth and the generosity inherent to Sangiovese. The mouthfeel exhibits soft tannins, snappy acidity and a full palate of bright red berry flavors. The cherry and cassis definition is especially evident in this warm vintage expression.

Wine SpectatorFeatures a blast of cherry, raspberry and plum flavors, allied to a round, juicy frame. The tannins show on the finish, but there is much to like about this red. Fine length. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2022.
