'Pergolaia', Toscana Rosso IGT, Caiarossa 2005
Pergolaia is a deliciously intense Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Merlot with 12 years bottle age that is absolutely at its peak now. It is one of those rare wines that we bought without hesitation as soon as we tasted it. It’s from a remarkable biodynamic estate, close to the coast, making some of the very finest Tuscan wines, in the same ownership as Château Giscours 3ème Cru Classé in Margaux.
"A fully mature baby Super Tuscan at a very non-Super Tuscan price. Yes please." Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
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. A wine of both class and style.
