Tua Rita was founded in 1984 by Rita and Virgilio Tua with just 2 hectares of vines – a long time favourite of those in the know which has developed a cult following in recent years.
Perlato del Bosco is a pure Sangiovese from the pebble and clay soils of upper Maremma. Fermented in conical oak vats then aged for 10 months in barrels. Warm and elegant with aromas of roses, lavender, sour cherry and hedgerow fruit. Medium to full-bodied with velvety tannins well-balanced with a refreshing acidity. A classic example of seaside Sangiovese.
The mid-weight 2015 Perlato del Bosco is a pure expression of Sangiovese that boasts the warmth and sunshine of Coastal Tuscany. The wine offers thick layers of fruit and spice that you would get, say, with Sangiovese from cooler inland areas with vineyards planted at higher altitudes over sea level. Bright cherry and wild raspberry transition to toasted almond, licorice and grilled herb.- 92 pts Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
