Petrolo Torrione 2015 (90 WA)

“On the ripe and sweet side, the 2015 Val d’Arno di Sopra Torrione is a terrific, easy drinking red wine made near Arezzo in Tuscany. The bouquet is soft and sunny with red fruit aromas, cherry  and crème de cassis. The wine offers a mid-weight finish with bright acidity that is characteristic of Sangiovese. This wine is, in fact, mostly Sangiovese with smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and merlot. This vintage tastes more immediate and accessible.”

    Petrolo is the definition of a cult winery, with an owner and a story that have helped create its legendary status. While the estate's benchmark wine, the Merlot cru Galatrona, deservedly receives fireworks in the press and is part of the history of Tuscany’s quality revolution in the late 1980s and 1990s, the winery's two other standouts, Torrione and Boggina, are an equally thrilling success - Sangiovese from a special and virtually unknown appellation bordering Chianti Classico that today produces wines of distinct regional identity.
