2006 Galatrona

flagCentral Italy / Italy

The estate’s 2006 Galatrona (100% Merlot) is especially large-scaled in this vintage, with tons of super-ripe dark fruit, new leather, spices and minerals. The Galatrona presents an intriguing combination of soft-textured, generous fruit wedded to sheer power in a sumptuous, full-bodied style. The tannins are present, but the wine’s sheer density creates an impression of seamless opulence. This immensely rewarding Galatrona should continue to develop beautifully in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2021. ||Proprietor Luca Sanjust and his team craft some of the most beautiful wines in Tuscany at the equally picturesque Petrolo estate. From top to bottom, this is a highly successful set of new releases. Readers who have an opportunity to visit the property should not leave without a few bottles of the estate’s delicious olive oil, which is just as outstanding as the wines.
