Fattoria Petrolo Toscana Torrione 2018
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.
