Perrucci Sangiovese Santa Cruz Mountains 2006
Our second public release of this Tuscan mainstay is another winner full of ripe fruit and toasted oak and sure to be an instant sellout. This wine is 100% Sangiovese from our Estate vineyard and was harvested on two different dates at the peak of ripeness before being aged in oak for 16 months. With only a few months of bottle age, this wine is already proving to be a real hit. Ready to drink now but it will also age well for a few more years. With less than seventy cases released to the public, get this one now before it is all gone.
Editorial Reviews for Perrucci Sangiovese Santa Cruz Mountains
Gentle aromas of wet sand, roasted herbs, sweet vanilla(-) ham(-) and strawberry jam filter up from the glass. There is also a minor note of brett adding a bit of sweat here. Cool and crisp up front with good acids and slightly aggressive yet not drying tannins support moderate notes of rosehips, sweet wild cherry, and floral flavors with a spearminty top note. Quite fruity on the finish with the well measured tannins and mouthwatering acid finale. This continued to improve through out the course of the evening. Good intensity 88pts
