Fattoria Petrolo Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Terre di Galatrona 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Galatrona is made entirely from pure Merlot grapes harvested around the middle of September. The yield per plant is notably restricted (max 2.0 lbs per vine plant) allowing a complete grape maturation to take place. This limited production permits the grapeskins to achieve highly concentrated levels of anthocyans and noble tannins, already sweetened due to the polymerization of the plant. The maceration on the skins lasts for 14 days. After the malolactic fermentation that takes place in French barrels of 225 liters, the wine is kept in new French oak barriques for 18 months.

Galatrona Toscana IGT 2008 - Fattoria Petrolo: Galatrona Toscana IGT 2008 - Rotwein von Fattoria PetroloDer Galatrona Toscana IGT gehört zu den besten reinsortigen Weine der Welt, ein absoluter Spitzen-Merlot.Diesen Rotwein prägen ein sattes, undurchdringliches Rubinviolett sowie ein kompakter und komplexer Duft mit Noten von Kirschen, Brombeeren, Tee, etwas dunkle Schokolade. Am Gaumen wirkt er sehr gewaltig und straff mit vielen stoffigen und feinkörnigen Tanninen. Der Merlot baut sich vielschichtig auf und begeistert mit einem sehr langen Nachhall, vibriert, der fast endlos erscheint.Daten von Galatrona Toscana IGT - Fattoria PetroloWeingut: Fattoria PetroloLand: ItalienRegion: ToskanaRebsorte: MerlotInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Fassreife: mind. 18 Monate in Fässern aus französischer EicheEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 18-20 °CAuszeichnungen für den Galatrona Toscana IGT von Fattoria Petrolo:Gambero Rosso 2009: 3 GläserDuemilavini 2009: 5 TraubenVeronelli-Guide 2009: 93 Punkte / 3 SterneGuide l'Espresso 2009: 4 FlaschenWine Spectator: 96 PunkteRobert Parker: 95 PunkteLuca Maroni Weinführer 2009: 91 PunkteFalstaff: 96 Punkte Toskana Rotwein, Wein, trocken, Italien, Toskana, Toscana, Merlot, Barrique, limitiert
