Rentennano Percarlo 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Percarlo is made from 100%, estate grown Sangiovese grapes, especially selected from 6 cru zones of our vineyards, which have a low yield of 1kg (resa/ceppo) grapes per vine. To obtain a wine of such extraordinary body and concentration the grapes for Percarlo are usually allowed to mature beyond the normal degree of ripeness. Percarlo is aged in French oak barriques for 20-22 months, bottled unfiltered and held in bottle for another 6 months before being released. The grapes which go into the making of Percarlo are selected from vineyards whose soil dates predominately to the Pliocene epoch. It is composed of layers of sand and stone which lie 2 to 5 meters deep and rest on beds of clay. The vineyards are situated at an average altitude of 270 meters above sea level. Notwithstanding the variations from year to year which occur in every wine faithful to its terroir, each vintage of Percarlo possesses constant characteristics which give it a precise, recognizeable identity. It is a wine with long ageing potential, a robust expression of the terroir of San Giusto. Thinning out of grapes: 50%. A hot and dry summer with some rain before the vintage period. A structured wine with long ageing potential. It is well balanced, characterized by a slow and regular ripening of the grapes.

This wine has a heady bouquet. A sweet cinammon aroma. Great body and lush mouthtfeel without being too weighty.

This is an intense red wine that's made from the Sangiovese grape and matured in French oak barrels for nearly 2 years. The flavors are persistent, very rich with firm tannins. A great piece of work from the San Giusto estate.
