Terre di Talamo Percecco 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"You don't find many pure Petit Verdots. This one is a beauty with dark fruits such as blueberries and blackberries. Full and rich with lovely fruit and length. So good now but will improve with age...92" JS 9/12

Terre di Talamo is located in the southern part of Tuscany’s Maremma coastal area, facing the Argentario gulf. The winery itself covers 125 acres of hillslope, with 75 planted to vineyards. In addition to Sangiovese, other varieties are cultivated as well including the grapes that make this wine, Petit Verdot. The soil is quite distinctive. Surface layers are largely well-drained rock, limestone and sandstone composites, but at a depth of about 5 feet an abundant clayey component keeps the soils cool and holds the water reserves necessary for the sound health and ripening of the grapes in the hot summers typical to this area. This wine is 100% Petit Verdot aged 24 months in French oak barrels. James Suckling scored the 2007 91 points. This 2008 shows Intense red in appearance with purple nuance. Its bouquet sweet, a vinous fragrance of blackberries and red cherries. The palate is rich yet soft with elegant spices and a hint of molasses. A full bodied wine with firm tannins, is beautifully balanced with great length and flavor on a sustained finish.
