San Giusto Percarlo IGT 2013 Tuscany
Named 'for Carlo', a friend of the estate's owners, this is one of Tuscany's true icon wines. Both a Super Tuscan and a 100% sangiovese wine, this has been made since 1983, and organically since 2001, with great attention to the clones of sangiovese (made by careful massal selection and propagated at Xavier Guillaume's nursery). It is a selection of the best grapes on the estate, aged for two years in barrique. The wine is glorious - powerful, full and rich, and easily the rival of many top Brunellos.
