Petrolo Galatrona IGT 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a phenomenal pure merlot with blueberries, raspberries and hints of milk chocolate. Some nutmeg too. Full body with very fine yet chewy tannins and a long, intense finish. Reminds me of the amazing 1998. Best ever from here...99 points." JS 08/13

Ausgezeichneter Wein, in der Nase kräftige Beerenaromen, Edelholz und delikate Vanillearomen, im Trunk kraftvoll, würzig und lang im Abgang. Muss unbedingt noch lagern

A massive expression of Merlot, the 2010 Galatrona is heaven-sent. The layers are infinite here spanning dark fruit, spice and chocolate. I fall in love with this wine year after year. The mouth is caressed with stirring complexity and fine tannins that feel silky and smooth. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2030.

The chocolate and cocoa notes highlight the black cherry, blackberry and pomegranate flavors in this dense red. Flamboyant, showing plenty of oak, this remains vibrant, intense and long, with a spicy aftertaste. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2026.

Full, saturated ruby. Extremely pure aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, violet, minerals and cocoa. Lush and silky but precise too, with rich, tactile black fruit and mineral flavors lifted by harmonious acidity. The slow-building finish features ripe but very silky tannins and wonderful purity of flavor. A more refined Galatrona than some recent, more tannic versions; cellar it for another four or five years to allow it to build further complexity and depth.

Amazing aromas of black truffles, crushed blackberries and dark chocolate. Dried flowers too. Full-bodied, with wonderful fruit that is layered and gorgeous. The finish is fruity, long and stylish. Give it three years to come together. Best after 201... James Suckling. A Merlot wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2009 Petrolo Galatrona IGT 750ml

Seit 1994 wird auf Petrolo ein reinsortiger Merlot produziert. Trotz der noch jungen Geschichte gehört Galatrona bereits zu den bestprämierten Weinen Italiens. Jedes Jahr aufs Neue ein gigantischer Merlot aus der Toskana.

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

Vintage: 2007 03/26/2013

Petrolo’s 2007 Galatrona (Merlot) is another of the successes of the vintage. It is a dark, seamless Galatrona packed with dark fruit, cassis, minerals and French oak. Despite the wine’s opulence and richness, the fruit retains considerable clarity as well as nuance. Today the French oak is a touch pronounced, but in a few years this dense, plush Merlot from impeccably-farmed hillside vineyards should be firing on all cylinders. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2027.
