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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 97
Wine Enthusiast
Each new vintage of Galatrona proves, year after year, the enormous potential of Italian Merlot. This is a soft and beautifully decadent wine with plush and perfectly ripe aromas of black cherry, light spice, chocolate and tobacco. The smoothness, richness and persistency is simply unbeatable.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
A powerful young Merlot, with green olive, sweet tobacco and tapenade character. Full and velvety, with loads of tannins at the finish. Polished and impressive for the vintage. Best after 2013.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Entirely Merlot from vines planted in the early 1990s, this is black, ripe and powerfully oaked. The fruit itself is tart and lean, the tannins bringing bitter black chocolate to mind. It's juicy underneath, ready for a steak grilled black and blue.
