94 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - August 2012

(an 80/20 blend of sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon; 14% alcohol):  Opaque dark red.  Very fresh sangiovese aromas of red berries, flint and tea leaf.  Fresh and elegant in the mouth, with pretty redcurrant, red cherry and cinnamon flavors.  The very long finish features peppery tannins, lingering juiciness and lovely saline tang.  This is the best-ever Perlato del Bosco at a similar stage of development.  Owner Stefano Frascolla told me that Perlato, which started life as a monovarietal sangiovese and then became a blend with the 2002 vintage, is now back on the road to becoming a 100%-varietal sangiovese again.  The first comeback vintage made entirely from sangiovese will be the 2012, and this wine is likely to spend only 10 to 12 months in oak, instead of the current 14.
