Petrolo Torrione 2020 (90 WS)

“This lithe red starts out with currant and raspberry fruit, shifting to a firm, compact finish marked by earth and underbrush. The middle shows an open-knit, succulent texture, and this ends with light astringency.” B.S 7/23

    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.
