2015 Galatrona Merlot, Fattoria Petrolo, Tuscany

2015 was an outstanding vintage in this part of Tuscany, and this is a beautifully expressive, powerful, yet elegant Galatrona. It’s got ripe plummy fruit, juicy tannins and a fine thread of acidity holding it all together. It tastes like a wine at a much higher price: a baby Masseto, if you will.

TASTING NOTES

The depth of fruit and intensity of tannins that set this Galatrona aside are some of the most impressive in years. Full body, velvety tannins and a long finish. A new 2004?
