Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 70% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah from the Perlato del Bosco vineyard. The grapes are harvested between late September and early October. After a gentle pressing, the must is macerated with the skins for 15 to 18 days. The cap is manually punched down daily for greater color and flavor extraction. The wine is aged for 20 months in oak barrels, and refined six months in the bottle before release.

Concentrated and dense, Perlato del Bosco is brilliant ruby red in color with dark hues. This gorgeous wine offers supple aromas of blackberry, cherry liqueur, currants, ripe plums, incense and leather. Perlato del Bosco is dense, fullbodied and spicy on the palate with mellow tannins and a persistent note of licorice on the finish. Recommended with roast beef, rich pastas, steaks, sausages and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Perlato del Bosco offers up mineral-infused blueberries, violets, tar and licorice. At first rather tense, the wine opens up nicely, with a gorgeous, muscular expression of fruit that is married with superb clarity and freshness throughout. Impeccably polished tannins inform the beautiful, long finish. Sweet scents of pipe tobacco add a sense of lift on the close. This is a marvelous effort from Tua Rita and a hugely over-achieving wine relative to the estate's top bottlings. Needless to say, the 2007 Perlato del Bosco is highly recommended. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027."
