Tasting Notes: Alessandro Bocci, owner and winemaker at Perazzeta, is, in our opinion, making some of the best everyday wines in all of Toscana right now. Located in the D.O.C. region of Montecucco, just south of Montalcino, his wines have tremendous power, tension, and assertive terroir. Bright, stinging cherry, crisp acidity, and tantalizing earth tones make this pretty, yet interesting wine hard to resist. The everyday wine of the estate, “Sara,” is named after Alessandro’s daughter, and is a tremendous follow-up to his wildly popular Rita, first released in 2005.
