Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco Toscana 2010 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Big notes of dark berries, licorice, and smoke on the nose

Full bodied on the palate

Dense finish of dark berries, earthy notes, and a hint of chocolate

Summary:

At 75% Sangiovese and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine screams Tuscany with a real sense of place. From a legendary producer, it's dense and layered as you'd expect if a bit less explosive than some. Intermediate-term cellaring (3-5 years) will probably benefit this wine but it tastes great young as well. The retail price runs around $30, which is fair. When poured with a rich pasta dish or steak, it should really shine. Raise a glass!
