External Reviews for Fattoria Petrolo Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Terre di Galatrona
Fantastic aromas of black olives, meat and berries with hints of violets. Complex. Full-bodied, velvety and long. Gorgeous and powerful Merlot. Blockbuster. This could be the wine of the vintage. Best after 2008.
Fabulous aromas of crushed berries, milk chocolate and flowers. Very complex and multilayered. Full-bodied, with gorgeous flavors and an ultrafine finish. Goes on and on. The high quality and subtlety of the tannins is impressive. Greatest ever from this producer, Le Pin of Tuscany. Merlot. Best after 2009.
Big and fleshy, with loads of blackberry, dark chocolate, olive and vanilla character. Full and chewy, with beautiful ripe fruit and quality tannins. This is juicy. Layered, dense and beautiful. A Merlot for the cellar. Best after 2012.
A perfectly formed bodybuilder. Gorgeous aromas of crushed flowers and ripe red fruits, have hints of minerals. Very perfumed. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, delicious finish. Very refined indeed. Builds and builds on the palate. Dense. Merlot. Best after 2007.
An incredible achievement for the vintage. Black color. Amazing aromas of blackberries, cherries, green olives and currants, with hints of toasted oak. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Best from 2002 through 2008.
This has a great color, with fabulous aromas of crushed blackberry, violet, toasty oak and black olive. Full-bodied, with powerful, ripe tannins and amazing flavors of blueberry, dark chocolate and toast. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Reminds me of the 1989 Pandeacute;trus. A stunning Merlot. Best after 2012.
Petrolo’s 2007 Galatrona (Merlot) is another of the successes of the vintage. It is a dark, seamless Galatrona packed with dark fruit, cassis, minerals and French oak. Despite the wine’s opulence and richness, the fruit retains considerable clarity as well as nuance. Today the French oak is a touch pronounced, but in a few years this dense, plush Merlot from impeccably-farmed hillside vineyards should be firing on all cylinders. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2027.
The Petrolo estate has 31 hectares of vineyards, situated between 250-400 metres above sea level. Luca Sanjust runs the estate, having taken over from his mother, Lucia Bazzocchi. The vibrancy and intensity of the fruit that Luca is now getting in his wines has brought them some well-deserved attention. Fruit for this wine came from vineyards planted at the beginning of the ‘90s. Yields are low, producing just 500g of grapes per vine, which results in a wine with great concentration of flavour. This wine is deep ruby red in colour, it has perfumes of ripe plums, damsons and cherries on the nose, with soft ripe fruit on the palate and a long, concentrated finish.
