Perazzeta, Rita Sangiovese Riserva D.O.C.
(REE-tah sahn-jo-VAY-zay ree-ZAYR-vah)

 

Tasting Notes: From Alessandro Bocci, one of Toscana’s greatest makers of olive oil and our wildly popular Rita Sangiovese comes his estate’s reserve wine, Rita Riserva–a truly remarkable achievement. With grapes that echo the richness and complexity of Montalcino (he is just yards away), and the powerful innovation of the Maremma, Bocci has made, we believe, his finest wine yet. Destined to be allocated every year, this is a powerhouse that will please even the toughest critics.
