    This gorgeous Sangiovese is what enthusiasts look for for under $20 but rarely find. Coming from one of the region's treasured, multiple 100-point award-winning producers, Tua Rita's Perlato del Bosco is a superb find. Aromatics include a mix of balsamic, sage, and ripe red strawberry lead to deeper red fruit flavors with hints of mint and tobacco. It is also a tremendous food wine and one that it all to easy to pull the cork on as it is drinking perfectly at this young stage. While its price point seems to indicate this is some kind of second or third wine, 2013 Perlato del Bosco is a handcrafted, small production gem that many wineries would be proud to have as their flagship. Drink now or hold for the next five to ten years.

    This is very plush, fresh, and balanced, showing plenty of ripe plum, black cherry, wild herbs and a hint of orange zest in the nose. I enjoyed a glass (or 2) of this while I whipped up a mélange of sautéed vegetables with a salad of fresh tomato, basil and bocconcini. This would be equally wonderful with some meat on the grill or a simple plate of cured meats and cheese.

    What's not to like about this wine? It shows velvety tannin, soft fruit and great lift and freshness. This is the perfect Summer dinner wine as it can stand up to hearty BBQ dishes, but is softer than many Italian wines and ready to drink now, so it's easy to drink at a picnic as well. The nice scores are well deserved on this guys and will be one of my go-to reds for as long as we can keep it in stock.
