2012 Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco
Producer: Tua Rita
Region: Suvereto, Tuscany, Italy
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
According to the Wine Enthusiast, “Made 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. 93/100”
Barry says that the top wine from this winery “Redegaffi” routinely gets 100 point scores, so it’s not surprising that this second wine is so good.
