Average Critic Score
95
Despite the hardships of the vintage, Luca Sanjust and the team at Petrolo poured all their focus and attention into creating this wine. The 2017 Galatrona shows a hot-vintage interpretation of Merlot that never feels too ripe or heavy. Instead, this wine ushers forth a remarkable succession of balsam herb-like aromas with Mediterranean shrub, rosemary essence and wild sage. Those garden-fresh aromas accompany the dark blackberry fruit that gives this wine its important center of gravity. The Merlot harvest came two weeks early in 2017, and yields were greatly reduced. I am suggesting a slightly shorter drinking window for the 2017 vintage compared to the cellar-worthy 2016 edition.
Average production at Petrolo is 30,000 to 35,000 bottles, but only 17,000 bottles were released in the challenging 2017 vintage. Petrolo proprietor Luca Sanjust calls 2017 a "demoralizing vintage" for all, but hard work and perseverance has paid off handsomely. His wines from the 2017 vintage show great quality, if alas, extremely low quantities.

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.

Grapes

Merlot is considered by many as the most luxurious red grape as it is known for its rich palate, velvety tannins and ample mouthfeel. Its home is originally France’s Bordeaux region and is responsible for Pomerol’s distinguished personality and firm grip (due to its unique clay soil), it also reigns supreme in St. Emilion where it provides its fleshy opulence. 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. ...
