Torrione IGT 2011 Petrolo
|Grape||Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese|
The 2011 Torrione is 85% Sangiovese tweaked with small parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Despite those added elements, what really comes through here is the purity of Sangiovese with its bright aromas of red cherry, pressed violets and dark earth. There-s a fresh point of acidity that really brings home those varietal characteristics. It shows balance, elegance and firmness.

There's a beautiful purity of fruit to this young red with currants and raspberries on the nose and palate. It's full-bodied with fine tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Precise and very fine. Best ever from here. A blend of sangiovese and merlot. Wonderful value for the quality.
