Petra Sangiovese Blend Toscana IGT Zingari 2006

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

The entry-level 2006 Zingari (Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sangiovese) is a simple, easygoing wine with pretty aromatics and an attractive core of dark red fruit, smoke, tar and licorice. This tasty red captures the essence of the 2006 vintage and is a great value. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.

The 2008 Zingari is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot aged entirely in stainless steel. It is an absolutely fabulous entry-level red from Maremma. Smoke, underbrush, licorice and truffles add complexity to the generous, dark fruit. Medium in body yet wonderfully intense, the Zingari impresses for its sheer richness and density. There is enough freshness for the Zingari to drink well for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2014.

Blackberry and light toasty oak character seem almost coffeelike in this medium-bodied red, which has firm tannins and a subtle, fruity finish. Best after 2010.

An entry-level wine, is made from a blend of Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese sourced from the estate's less well-exposed vines and aged in stainless steel. The 2006 exhibits a dark ruby color and perfumed aromatics along with a very characteristic Maremma warmth on the palate, where notes of blueberries, blackberries, licorice and spices emerge from the glass. It is a highly pleasing wine that is sure to find many admirers.
