Le Cinciole’s Petresco – A Mindblower!

2017 Le Cinciole, IGT Colli Della Toscana Centrale, Petresco (RT95+) A single vineyard bottling from the Sottobosco Cru, crafted from 100% Sangiovese that was grown embracing an organic/biodynamic philosophy. Fermented in concrete, then aged in barrique for 24 months with a total production of just 5,000 bottles. The 2017 Petresco shows the magnificence of the vintage with its deep russet/ruby hue as stimulating notes of ripe plum, blackberry liqueur, dried florals and sweet spices waft from the glass. This is amazingly elegant and sophisticated, which displays first class barrique integration! The palate echoes the pure, elegant fruit with impressive balance, mineral-acid thrust, and wonderfully ripe sweet tannins. Magnificence personified, this continues to be an impressive value is a market that is making fewer and fewer great wines affordable. Buy this and cellar it! Drink now-2037+
