Tasted somewhat like a Burgundian pinot noir. Tested on well-aired bottle, about 3 hrs. Nose of sharp and centered floral with perfumey red fruit (red berry, perhaps plum and cherry). In the mouth ripe dry red fruit (berry, plum, cherry) with non-trivial mushroom, earth, and drying tannins. Finishes with some acid kick and drying tannins and fruit fading. Dry. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium plus.

Proprietor Luca Sanjust and his team make some of the most sensual, pleasurable wines in Tuscany. Petrolo's 2007 Torrione (Sangiovese) is one of the overachievers of the vintage. In a blind tasting it could easily be mistaken for a wine that costs twice as much (trust me on that!). This is simply a marvelous bottle of Tuscan red laced with perfumed red fruits, silky tannins and exceptional overall balance. The minerality and delineation here is nothing short of first class.

Clear and precise, with beautiful aromas of plum, berries and chocolate. Full-bodied and refined, with a dense yet elegant palate of plum, chocolate and cherry. Long and caressing. Wonderfully polished. Very fine. Sangiovese and Merlot.

Petroloandrsquo;s 2007 Torrione (Sangiovese) is one of the overachievers of the vintage. In a blind tasting it could easily be mistaken for a wine that costs twice as much (trust me on that!). This is simply a marvelous bottle of Tuscan red laced with perfumed red fruits, silky tannins and exceptional overall balance. The minerality and delineation here is nothing short of first class. I actually preferred the Torrione to the higher-end Boggina. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2022.

This beautiful Sangiovese has great subtlety, with complex aromas of flowers, berries, plums and aged cedar. Full-bodied, with superrefined tannins and a long, long finish. This is so refined, almost ethereal. Hard not to drink now. Best after 2006.

Winemaker's Notes:

This property has long been one of Liberty Wines’ favourite producers of Chianti from Arezzo, and it has become one of the most talked about estates in recent years. Petrolo is situated in the area known as the Colli Aretini, bordering on the Chianti Hills, a historical area delimited in 1716 by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Cosimo III de’ Medici as a particularly valuable land for wine and olive oil. The Petrolo Estate was part of the old medieval fiefdom of “Galatrona”, the old tower of which still remains on top of Roman foundations. “Torrione” in Italian means tower, thus the name of the wine. Today the property covers 272 hectares of which 31 are vineyards, situated between 250-450 metres above sea level. There are 19 Ha of olive groves and the rest of the estate is arable land and woods. 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. The wine is ripe and full with good depth and structure. Rich and full on the nose, with the perfumes of wild blackberries, cherries and raspberries characteristic of good Sangiovese. Concentrated in the mouth, with good weight and ripe, supple tannins, the oak adds polish and rounds out the acidity typical of this grape variety. It seems set to join the ranks of the better-known Super Tuscans.
