San Giusto a Rentennano Percarlo IGT 1999, 750mL (WA94+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

San Giusto a Rentennano Percarlo IGT

750mL

Vintage: 1999
Region: Italy

WA94+
Rated 94+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 1999 Percarlo bristles on the palate with tons of energy. This is a medium-bodied Percarlo laced with vibrant red cherries, freshly cut flowers and spices. The 1999 still has good depth, but it is not an eternal wine, so it is far from a crime to be drinking it today. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.` -- 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.`
