'Pergolaia', Toscana Rosso IGT, Caiarossa 2005
Dispatched from 3rd December.
A tiny parcel of the most delicious Tuscan blend with 13 years bottle age.The wine is absolutely delightful. Sangiovese dominates the blend, but the use of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot really gives the wine another edge,shaping Pergolaia into a wine of intense flavours and superb depth.
How does the wine taste?
Smooth and soft, supple tannins with delicious rich fruit and a brilliant long finish. The wine incorporates beautifully the aged flavours of tobacco and leather.
What do the critics say?
A fully mature baby Super Tuscan at a very non-Super Tuscan price. Yes please.
