Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2007 Percarlo flows across the palate with tons of depth and richness. It is one of the few Tuscan 2007s that hasn’t been too distorted by the heat of the year. There is plenty of Sangiovese nuance in this large-scaled, voluptuous wine. All the elements are very nicely balanced in the 2007. This isn’t a huge, structured vintage of Percarlo, but in exchange the wine should drink well earlier than some of the more powerful surrounding vintages, namely 2006 and 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. (AG)

A powerful red, showing black currant and cherry flavors, with a sleek outer layer of spicy oak. Fresh and vibrant, with a solid structure and a long, fruit- and spice-filled finish. Best from 2014 through 2023.
