A Solid Tuscan Blend


It turns out that both David Bloch and I are fans of Tua Rita.

2007 Tua Rita, Perlato del Bosco
Tua Rita is a producer of some of the finest wines in Tuscany.  From the iconic Redigaffi (100% Merlot) and killer Syrah to the terrific Bordeaux-styled Giusto di Notri to more “everyday” offerings like the Perlato.  Very dark in color.  Should be decanted a few hours in advance.   On the nose there are notes of espresso.  Stewed plums.   Now some chocolate.  Black cherries.  A rich wine – full bodied but not heavy.  Same notes of espresso, coffee and dark chocolate on the palate.  Along with the plums.  Blackberries too.  The tannins are still poking through and I suspect it would take several more years for them to be fully resolved but I would not risk missing out on the fine Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon fruit.  Long finish and better on day two.  This is not the most refined vintage of this wine I’ve had from Tua Rita, but it provides enormous drinking pleasure today and works well at the table.
