2010 Tua Rita Perlato del Bosco

Dark chocolate and cherries on the nose, pleasant. Very nice, bright cherry fruit, some blackberry, plums and a note of licorice. Smooth tannins, nice acidity and good balance. There is a burst of bright red fruit on the mid-palate. Finishes with nice length, bittersweet chocolate and red fruits. Nice wine with pasta, not great. Drink over the next two years. 75% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet. "B+"
