azienda agricola urlari



Pervale is an IGT Toscana wine from Azienda Agricola Urlari in Riparbella, Toscana.


Named for (Per) the owner’s daughter, Valentina, of which Vale is the diminutive.
[per VAL -ee]

A SuperTuscan Blend:

Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Alicante Bouschet.


24,000 750 ml bottles on average each year (approximately 2 plants per bottle).


The grapes are deposited on a conveyor belt that moves them using gravity (to avoid damaging the skins) to the de-stemming machine where the leaves and stems are removed. From there, the fruit moves via conveyor belt to a filtering machine that gently breaks the skins to release juice as the grapes drop to fill conical-shaped stainless steel tanks. Temperature-controlled fermentation begins and juice is pumped over the grapes every 6 hours. After 2 weeks the grapes are gently pressed and the wine is aged 12 months in half new/half used French oak barrels and 12 months in the bottle.  


Gambero Rosso: 2 glasses for each of our 2009 and 2010 vintages of Pervale.
