90/100 – James Suckling
“A refined and subtlety flavorful red with aromas and flavors of cherries and lemons. Medium body, light tannins and a lively finish. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. A blend of sangiovese, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink now.” – James Suckling
Tasting Note: Following the Tuscan tradition, Sangiovese dominates in this blend, shaping Pergolaia into a wine of intense bouquet, seductive body with soft tannins and superb depth. Mainly Sangiovese with small amount of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, from the Podere Serra all’olio and Podere Nocolino vineyards.
