    ($68) Deep ruby. Smoky, minerally aromas of violet, red cherry and blackcurrant, with hints of truffle, tobacco and pastrami. Very suave on entry, then smooth and fine-grained, with good mineral lift to the sweet fruit flavors. Sweet, lush and seamless wine, powerful yet elegant thanks to fine acidity that draws out the finish for minutes. An amazingly good, utterly textbook sangiovese that clearly communicates the greatness of this variety.

    A balanced and attractive wine, with milk chocolate and berry character. Full-bodied, bright and very racy. Fresh finish. Silky tannins. Very well made and polished. 1,580 cases made.

    The 2004 Percarlo is a wine of extraordinary grace, purity and class. Freshly cut flowers, spices, plums, cherries and sweet spices are some of the many notes that are woven together in this super-refined, polished Percarlo. Today the aromas and flavors are still quite primary, while it is the silkiness of the tannin that is most remarkable. The 2004 is a medium-bodied Percarlo built on pure length and energy.

    wonderful moderately priced wine, great mouthfeel and body and fruit, should age well ready now

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.

The rolling hills of Tuscany are home to ancient vines that grew wild long before modern times. Sangiovese is the variety of the region's best-known wines, Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti. In recent years, “Super Tuscans"—blends including non-native Bordeaux varieties—have gained in popularity and acclaim. The region's Mediterranean climate, with its warmer average temperatures, provides ideal conditions for the development of rich, structured, and age-worthy wines.
