San Giusto a Rentennano Percarlo IGT 1995, 750mL (WA92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

San Giusto a Rentennano Percarlo IGT

750mL

Vintage: 1995
Region: Italy

WA92
Rated 92 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 1995 Percarlo is a bit more immediate in its fruit than the 1994, while the bouquet is also a touch advanced. Hints of truffle, tobacco and earthiness add complexity. The energy and minerality of the great vintages is elusive. Ideally, the 1995 is best enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.` -- Antonio Galloni in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `This complete vertical of Percarlo left me speechless. Brothers Luca and Francesco Martini di Cigala showed me every vintage of Percarlo, back to the inaugural 1983, a wine that has now run its full course. I was deeply struck by the consistency of the wines from year to year, and even more importantly, by the great showing of a number of wines from long forgotten vintages, proving yet again the importance of choosing producer over vintage. Percarlo started off as a selection of the estate`s best vineyards. In 2001 the Cigalas sharpened their approach by focusing on what is now literally a bunch by bunch selection across all of the fruit that comes into the winery, an approach they favor because of the huge inconsistency Sangiovese can often show from vine to vine, and even within the same cluster. I also tasted a few vintages of the Chianti Classico Le Baroncole, the top Sangiovese bottling made in vintages not deemed suitable for Percarlo. Readers who want to learn more about San Giusto and Percarlo may want to take a look at my recent video interview with proprietor Luca Martini di Cigala.`
