Fattoria Petrolo Sangiovese Toscana IGT Torrione 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

Torrione is made entirely from pure Sangiovese grapes, both those that come from historic vines of the 70s and ones more recently planted with high density. The yield per plant is notably restricted (max 2.5 lbs per vine plant), allowing a concentration of all the noble components of the grape, fundamental for the full-bodied character of this wine. The maceration on the skins lasts for 14 days. Afterwards, the malolactic fermentation takes place, partly in French barrels of 225 liters and partly in 30 Hl oak barrels. The wine then is aged in French oak barriques, one third new, for approximately 15 months.
