Situated in the Colli Arentini, bordering the Chianti Hills, this 100% Merlot is nothing short of stunning. With the vines now between 25 and 35 years old and with miniscule yields, they are really beginning to hit their stride, producing exceptional fruit. This particular area has clay rich soils, just like the right-bank of Bordeaux, which explains why the Merlot made here is so dazzlingly good. With an average score of 96.4/100 over the last 5 vintages in the wine Advocate, we are expecting big things in 2019. James Suckling is the first to taste it, giving a 99 point score
"Blackberries and black cherries with lavender and violets on the nose. Full-bodied with velvety, chewy tannins, yet the fruit is very intense with vibrancy and energy. Muscular, yet agile. Pure and poised. A unique definition of merlot in Tuscany. Drink after 2025." 99pts James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com
"The 25th anniversary bottling of this 100% Merlot wine and jewel in the collection of owner-winemaker Luca Sanjust’s 10-hectare Fattoria di Petrolo estate, located just outside the Chianti Classico zone near Montevarchi. This has a wonderful floral touch to the aromas, beguiling and elegant, with a touch of wild strawberries. Satin-like at first, then the textured tannins settle surrounded by succulent cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit finishing with a herbal lift at the end. Excellent drive, smooth and satisfying with a long life ahead." 95pts Decanter
