2018 Petrolo Val d'Arno di Sopra Torrione (750ml)15 3 0 0
Torrione is a blend of the grapes of all the vineyards of Petrolo - Sangiovese from Bòggina and the historical vineyards of Petrolo (80%), Merlot from Galatrona (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon from Campo Lusso (5%). The special heart on the label of the 2018 vintage marks Torrione’s 30th anniversary.
"A red with plenty of blackberry, black-olive, floral and oyster-shell character. It’s full-bodied, yet layered, extremely polished and beautiful. A dusty texture. Hazelnut and walnut undertones. From organically grown grapes. A little more merlot and cabernet sauvignon in the blend. Gorgeous now, but better after 2021 and onwards." 95 points - James Suckling (13 Jul, 2020)
"This is such a fun edition of this wine with a fluttering heart sketched onto the front label. I imagine that the heart could be dedicated to proprietor Luca Sanjust's rambunctious mother who recently passed away. Made with organic fruit, the Petrolo 2018 Val d'Arno di Sopra Torrione is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The wine opens to a dark and rich appearance with punchy aromas of tart cherry and wild berry. Warm aromas of tobacco, spice and cedar wood appear gradually as the wine opens in the glass." 94 points - Monica Larner (Wine Advocate, Oct 2020)
