Tasting Notes: Just swirl, sip, and enjoy. Perazzeta’s famously lush, bright wines are the product of a rare fanaticism that produces among the lowest yields and most callused hands we have ever seen. The explosion of fresh fruit, delivered by Alessandro Bocci’s first and only SuperTuscan, is difficult to compare with other wines one has tried. The balance, extract, and raw power is so intense it induces sensations of actually chewing cherries, prunes, and fresh dates. Named after Alessandro’s ageless father, Erio is a young gun that is at the pinnacle of early release wines from Italia.
