The profound beauty of the 2010 Percarlo cannot be exaggerated. This is an exceptional wine, and one of the best I tasted in Tuscany this year. The bouquet shows infinite layering and a steady evolution in the glass with tones of red cherry, spice, caramel, cigar ash, balsam herb and cola. It shows new dimension with each swirl of the glass. The mouthfeel, on the other hand, is steady and strong, with a gripping sense of structure that is yielding but dense at the same time. A point of acidity adds levity and length. This is an excellent candidate for long cellaring.
96 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Good deep, bright red. Vibrant aromas of dark red cherry, licorice and violet suggest a wine with strong extract. Rich and youthfully chewy, with plenty of texture and uncanny sweetness to support its lively, harmonious acidity and to avoid coming off as austere. Really saturates the mouth with flavor on the very long finish. This outstanding Sangiovese magically combines real extract, power and grace, a neat trick.
93 Points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright and bursting with fruit, this black cherry- and black currant-flavored red is energetic and resonant. Oak spice and tobacco accents add depth. Grippy finish.
