International Wine Cellar Author: Daniel Thomases Issue: Issue 91

Ruby-garnet with blackish notes. Intensely spicy, sweet nose dominated by plum; expansive and impressive. Massive and mouthfilling, with plum fruit of almost exotic ripeness. Complicating notes of tar and licorice. Finishes with great density and an avalanche of sensations that defies description. There have been so many great bottles of Percarlo that it is hard to rank them, but this 1997 is surely among the finest of all.

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 201

The 1997 Percarlo impresses for its pure seduction. It is also impossibly young. Dark red cherries, flowers and mint wrap around the palate in this sensual, inviting wine. In keeping with the qualities of the warm year, the 1997 emphasizes textural depth and richness rather then the more aromatic, firm style that defines cooler years such as 1996. The 1997 is drop dead gorgeous today. I imagine the 1997 will age faster than the 1996, but that shouldn't be much of a problem given the wine's exceptional balance. Layers of fruit built to the huge, textured finish. This is a decidedly flashy wine. I have always had a soft spot for the 1997. This bottle more than exceeded my expectations.

Aromas of flowers, berries and cherries. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long mouthpuckering finish. An outstanding Percarlo. Needs bottle age. 1,610 cases made.

Amazing vibrant nose. A big wine with lots of unresolved tannins, but clearly headed for greatness. Needs another 10 years...

Wow. Still a baby. Open for 30 minutes and you will get waves of Sangiovese fruit with a long finish. Special

This is a profound example of Sangiovese that is beginning to unwind itself into a lovely drinking experience, thanks to a decade of aging. Notions of dried flowers, smoky tobacco, tarry cherries, rose water and truffles scintillate from the glass. The palate pumps out intensely endowed fruit in spades and really stretches its legs on the powerful, almost chewy, effusive finish that goes on and on. While I still find the Flaccianello to be the most classic example of pure Sangiovese from Italy, this is undoubtedly a worthy successor and is evolving into quite a beauty
