Torrione marks the beginning of Petrolo's quality revolution. It is considered to be the true identity of Petrolo, made with a blend of grapes from all of the estate's vineyards. With a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Torrione is also in keeping with Tuscan tradition of adding Bordeaux varieties to Sangiovese and instilling a sense of place in the French varieties, lending them a distinctly Tuscan character.

Petrolo's 2018 Torrione is fabulous. Deep, inky and generous, the 2018 packs a serious punch. Ripe dark red fruit, chocolate, spice, leather and tobacco are all kicked up a few notches, with sweet floral top notes that add aromatic lift. The 2018 is an especially boisterous Torrione, with all the elements in the right place. In a word: delicious.

Straddles a Bordeaux character with Tuscan leanings of wild herbs, tar and underbrush flanking the core of black currant, blackberry and pencil shaving flavors. It's firm and long, with a muscular grip on the finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2029. 4,100 cases made, 700 cases imported.
