Bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the west, Tuscany is a region of hillside vineyards where the Sangiovese grape thrives in the warm sunlight. There are four DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) wines made from Sangiovese: Chianti, Vino Nobile de Montepulciano, Carmignano and Brunello.
The 2010 Percarlo is shaping up to be one of the elite wines of this great Tuscan vintage. Even today, the 2010 is remarkably seamless, balanced and integrated, with fine tannins, beautifully delineated fruit and exceptional overall balance..
"Firm yet sweet, silky tannins form the backbone for this gorgeous, vivid wine. Dark red cherries, plums, cloves, mint and sage inform a Tignanello that impresses for its delineation, nuance and power... In my view, 2010 will go down as one of the great all-time vintages in Tuscany..."
