Tasting Notes: In the fulfillment of a dream, Alessandro Bocci from Perazzeta was able to procure a small plot of prime vineyard land just across the road from his estate, in Montalcino. The vines are too young to make Brunello, but are already producing wonderful fruit–absolutely perfect for a world-class Rosé. Made by Alessandro and his daughter, Sara, this beautiful rosato <br />delivers unexpected power and delineation. Yes, it has richness. Yes, it is bold. But it is flinty and beautiful, and never heavy in the mouth.
