    The 1988 Percarlo (magnum) is impossibly young. It boasts stunning purity of fruit and massive structure. It is hard to believe the wine is 24 years old, although I am sure the magnum format has helped quite a bit. I am blown away by the immense, primary notes of the fruit. Amazingly, the bouquet still looks years away from opening up fully. Frankly, I needed every bit of my discipline to move forward after tasting the 1988. This is a dazzling showing by any measure.

  • 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.
