The polish and fine texture to this 2014 is impressive with blueberry, dark chocolate and light walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body, integrated tannins and a long, refined finish. Serious sense for the vintage. Better in 2017.

Fattoria Petrolo

Fattoria Petrolo

Owned by the fourth generation of the Bazzocchi-Sanjust family, Tenuta Petrolo, located in the Colli Arentini sub-district of southeastern Chianti, focuses on producing wines of the highest quality. Along with expert help, enologist, Simone Cuccoli, and consulting enologist, Carlo Ferrini, the 31-hectare vineyard produces one of Tuscany’s finest 100% Merlots. The rich Galatrona Merlot can easily compete with the very best of Pomerol. As their flagship wine, Torrione expresses the spirit of the property in a compelling bottle of Sangiovese. Torrione is to Sangiovese, what Galatrona is to Merlot. They complete their wine roster with five other wines, some being unique single-vineyard wines, like Campolusso, and Boggina.

This seductress also has a claim to fame in some of Italy’s top bottlings, such as Masseto, Galatrona and Le Macchiole. ...

Tuscany

Tuscany

Tuscany is arguably the most famous of all Italian wine regions for not only does one have the renowned vineyards of Chianti, Montepulciano and Montalcino where Sangiovese reigns in all its forms, but it is also the land of the Super Tuscan, the cult wine style that laid the foundation of some of the greatest wines of the country. Some of the greatest bottles include Sassicaia, Tignanello, Ornellaia and Masseto. In addition to being the most famous, it is also one of the most spread out with vineyards as far north as Florence and as far southeast as the Umbrian border and as far southwest as Bolgheri and the Maremma on the Mediterranean sea. Though it is most famous for its reds, it also produces delicious whites including Vernaccia from San Gimignano and Vermentino from its vineyards closer to the sea. ...
