Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

The 2007 Percarlo flows across the palate with tons of depth and richness. It is one of the few Tuscan 2007s that hasn't been too distorted by the heat of the year. There is plenty of Sangiovese nuance in this large-scaled, voluptuous wine. All the elements are very nicely balanced in the 2007. This isn't a huge, structured vintage of Percarlo, but in exchange the wine should drink well earlier than some of the more powerful surrounding vintages, namely 2006 and 2008.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

A powerful red, showing black currant and cherry flavors, with a sleek outer layer of spicy oak. Fresh and vibrant, with a solid structure and a long, fruit- and spice-filled finish.

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.

Wine Varietal: Sangiovese

Italyâ??s most popular grape, Sangiovese is the top grape used in Tuscany including Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and many of Italyâ??s â??Super Tuscans.â?? At least 14 clones of Sangiovese exist which are grouped into the Sangiovese grosso and Sangiovese piccolo families. Sangiovese thrives in a warm climate and consists of over 10% of Italyâ??s vineyard acreage (covering almost a quarter million acres). Over the past decade Sangiovese has become increasingly popular and successful in California as well. Typical descriptors for Sangiovese include candied or dried cherry, citrus, leather, violets and tea.
