Winemaker Notes

Galatrona is made entirely from pure Merlot grapes harvested around the middle of September. The yield per plant is notably restricted, allowing a complete grape maturation to take place. This limited production permits the grape skins to achieve highly concentrated levels of anthocyans and noble tannins, already sweetened due to the polymerization of the plant.

WS 98
Wine Spectator
This has a great color, with fabulous aromas of crushed blackberry, violet, toasty oak and black olive. Full-bodied, with powerful, ripe tannins and amazing flavors of blueberry, dark chocolate and toast. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Reminds me of the 1989 Pétrus. A stunning Merlot. Best after 2012.
WE 98
Wine Enthusiast
Galatrona is an opulent, gorgeous wine (from the excellent 2007) vintage that shows the very best of Merlot in Italy. Thanks to a unique growing climate located between Florence, Siena and Arezzo, as well as extremely low vineyard yields, the wine feels soft and velvety and imparts long-lasting flavors of black cherry, lively spice, tobacco and cigar box. The true beauty of Galatrona is that it shows all the passion and enthusiasm of its very talented winemaker.

Wonderful aromas and flavors of violets and crushed blackberries. Just a touch of cream. Ripe, powerful tannins and a full body, with incredible flavors of dark chocolate and blueberries. Goes on for minutes on the palate.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Petrolo's 2007 Galatrona (Merlot) is another of the successes of the vintage. It is a dark, seamless Galatrona packed with dark fruit, cassis, minerals and French oak. Despite the wine's opulence and richness, the fruit retains considerable clarity as well as nuance. Today the French oak is a touch pronounced, but in a few years this dense, plush Merlot from impeccably-farmed hillside vineyards should be firing on all cylinders. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2027.
95+ Points.
