Petrolo Galatrona 2010

Petrolo Galatrona 750ml 2010     
Sku: 1845936

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

If one were to draw a triangle linking Florence, Siena and Arezzo, Petrolo would be at the center. This 672 estate is located in Mercatale Valdarno in the Colli Aretini region, an area renowned for its olive oils and wines. The Bazzocchi family bought the property in the 1940s, and it’s currently managed by Lucia Bazzocchi Sanjust and her son Luca. The relatively high altitude of the vineyards, its galestro soils and the lakes on the property create ideal growing conditions for the vines. The family has planted 76 acres to Merlot and Sangiovese. Oenologist Stefano Guidi is assisted by Carlo Ferrini and technical agronomist Carlo Nesterini.

 Wine Advocate 96 points (Aug 2013)
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.
