Fattoria Petrolo Toscana Torrione 2016
The 2016 Val d'Arno di Sopra Torrione is mostly Sangiovese with smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The bouquet opens to ripe cherry and dried raspberry with moist earth, exotic spice and chewing tobacco. The wine is plush and rich with a hint of that tangy Sangiovese acidity on the close.
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.
