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.

What the critics say:

99/100James Suckling

"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."

97/100Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"Made with organic Merlot grapes, the Petrolo 2019 Galatrona is soft and luscious, spreading evenly over the palate with elegance and sweeping intensity. The bouquet shows dark fruit, black cherry and sweet prune. Those dark fruit tones are woven into pretty layers of spice, leather and perfumed tobacco. I like the tight, compact, yet fundamentally rich quality that is part of the mouthfeel in this important vintage. This wine could be considered a bit lighter and more ethereal compared to recent past releases, but I found that all the wines in this batch of new releases go in this same direction."
