Fattoria Petrolo Sangiovese Toscana IGT Torrione 2009
External Reviews for Fattoria Petrolo Sangiovese Toscana IGT Torrione
Aromas of lightly stewed fruit, with hints of fresh herbs and spices. Full bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. This is balanced and long, with a caressing finish. Best ever. Mostly Sangiovese, with a hint of Merlot. Better after 2013. James Suckling. A Sangiovese wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2009 Petrolo Il Torrione IGT 750ml
Kirschen, Pflaumen, Blütennoten, im Hintergrund etwas Leder und Tabak. Elegant, köstlicher Gaumenfluss, frische Balance und seidene Tannine am Gaumen. Erneut präsentiert uns Luca Sanjust einen brillanten und charmanten Sangiovese.
The 2009 Torrione impresses for its sensual inner perfume, silky tannins and gracious overall balance. Sweet red cherries, strawberry jam, crushed flowers, herbs and spices meld together in this tasty red. Torrione isn’t the great bargain it once was, but is still a great introduction to the wines of Petrolo. This medium-bodied, feminine Sangiovese-based red is best enjoyed over the next 5–7 years, while the fruit is vibrant. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2021.
