Torrione marks the beginning of the Petrolo's quality revolution. It is considered to be the true identity of Petrolo, made with a blend of grapes from all of the estate's vineyards. With a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Torrione is also in keeping with Tuscan tradition of adding Bordeaux varities to Sangiovese and instilling a sense of place in the French varieties, lending them a distinctly Tuscan character.

Fresh earth and graphite aromas lead off in this version, finding its feet with cherry, raspberry, currant and floral notes midpalate. Hints of earth, mineral and tobacco add depth as this plays out on the finish. Shows fine elegance and harmony. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2027.
