Reviews For This Wine


 
Wine Advocate | 92

The 1985 Percarlo is spectacular. Sweet hints of tobacco, rosemary, sage and violets are some of the notes that form the kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors in the glass. Time has been extremely kind to the 1985, a wine that has aged incredibly graciously. Everything is in the right place. The 1985 boasts incredible depth and persistence for a wine of its age, although it should not be opened too far in advance. There is more than enough fruit for the 1985 to drink well for a number of years. This is the first vintage that was aged in French oak barrels.

Chewy, concentrated and harmonious, a big wine with ripe berry and plum aromas and flavors, firm structure and plenty of tannin, but the fruit wins on the finish. Needs time to shed some of that tannin.

About This Producer


This estate, with its ninth-century military fortress, is currently under the ownership of the Martini di Cigala family. It is located on the Siena side of the Chianti appellation, in the area known as the Gaiole zone. The estate actually began as a Cistercian monastery, and eventually became a Florentine fortification.

The Percarlo is a 100% Sangiovese production and is specially selected from 6 cru zones which have yields of less than 1 kilogram per vine. The selection of grapes is stringent, and in many years at least 50% are thinned out. The Ricolma is made from 100% Merlot and undergoes the same rigid thinning parameters that cover the Percarlo. It is probably one of the best expressions of Merlot found outside of Bordeaux and offers the collector a unique cellaring and drinking experience.
