Perolla is San Felice’s nod to modern-styled, approachable wines. Located in Maremma, this 123 acre estate is planted with traditional indigenous varieties - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Pugnitello. The south/southwest facing vineyards were planted from 1995-2000 on soils that range from pebbly, sandy clays to compact clay-silt.
|(85% Vermentino/15%Sauvignon Blanc). The Vermentino is planted to medium-textured sandstone and clay, while the Sauvignon Blanc is grown on a mix of textured gravel and pebbles. The fruit was cold soaked prior to fermentation and the wine matured on its lees for a month before aging for two months in bottle.
