Fattoria Petrolo Toscana Torrione 2015

Fattoria Petrolo Toscana Torrione 2015

SKU 03037


Torrione is made mainly from Sangiovese coming from a combination of historic vines of the 70s and ones more recently planted. The 2015 is a blend of Sangiovese (80%), Merlot (15%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (5%). The recent vineyards were planted under fortunately rigorous guidelines based on the number of vines per hectare and on strict zoning. The yield per plant is notably restricted (max 2.5 lbs per vine plant), allowing a concentration of all the noble components of the grape, fundamental for the full-bodied character of this wine.

Wine SpectatorThis is lean and taut, with cherry, leather, tobacco, earth and iron flavors. Leans to the dry side in the end, but has depth and character. Turns more elegant and complex with air. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2019 through 2025. 700 cases imported.
