This excellent mini-SuperTuscan has had a few outings in The Spectator Wine Club and received many raves and it sold very well. Imagine our joy when the producer announced that he had stubbed his toe on a hidden pallet containing more of the 2005 vintage. It is a blend of sangiovese, cabernet franc and merlot something that would have been unthinkable in DOCG regulations 30 years ago as in those days wines had to be vinified from Italian varietals.

This wine is absolutely at its peak, has a lovely garnet colour to it, appealing notes of morello cherry and to taste it is perfectly balanced, super ripe fruit, the tannins are lovely and soft in fact there are no hard edges to this beauty that lingers in the mouth long after having been tasted.

Jonathan Ray's review:
"The 2005 Pergolaia, second wine of Caiarossa, the biodynamically farmed Super Tuscan thats in the same ownership as mighty Chx Giscours and du Tertre in Margaux (And just what is it about these wines that they all end in -aia? Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Solaia and now Pergolaia. Just asking). Anyway, at almost 15 years old, I thought itd be a tad over the hill but Esme insisted that its a cracker and, blow me, the canny old fox is bang on the money, for its absolutely à point. The Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend is perfectly judged with delectable sweet fruit in the mouth and a fine, fresh, slightly savoury finish. A fully mature baby Super Tuscan at a very non-Super Tuscan price. Yes please."
