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

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.

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

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

The 2001 Galatrona confirms its status as one of Tuscanyrsquo;s better Merlot bottlings with its dark ruby color, ripe, warm plum and black cherry fruit, and spicy, dense flavors, broad and long, with a swelling volume on the finish. Drink: 2005ndash;2015.

Fantastic aromas of black olives, meat and berries with hints of violets. Complex. Full-bodied, velvety and long. Gorgeous and powerful Merlot. Blockbuster. This could be the wine of the vintage. Best after 2008.

Fabulous aromas of crushed berries, milk chocolate and flowers. Very complex and multilayered. Full-bodied, with gorgeous flavors and an ultrafine finish. Goes on and on. The high quality and subtlety of the tannins is impressive. Greatest ever from this producer, Le Pin of Tuscany. Merlot. Best after 2009.
