Winemaker Notes

Only made from Merlot, Galatrona is one of the most awarded wines of the estate. Wine of great structure on the palate and wildly aromatic on the nose. Galatrona is Petrolo's flagship wine.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 98
James Suckling
The violets and blackberries show wonderfully on the nose here, yet this remains subtle and complete with hints of walnuts. Full body, ultra-fine and firm tannins and a beautiful fruit and mineral undertone. Tight and substantial. So layered. Another example of finesse and beauty here with this pure merlot. Better in 2018.
RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Galatrona pretty much sold out in pre sales before it's official release last year. The quality is outstanding and the Merlot grape offers a heightened sense of sharpness and focus in a slightly cooler vintage such as this. Galatrona exhibits a plush and rich bouquet that is embellished with soft cherry and blackberry nuances followed by spice, sweet tobacco, chocolate and crushed granite. The wine is amply fleshed out and generous. It offers an incredible sense of overall balance and irresistible drinking pleasure.

W&S 94
Wine & Spirits
Petrolo’s 672-acre estate sprawls over the hills of Chianti Colli Aretini. They planted Galatrona’s 7.4-acres in 1990 and restrict the yields to two pounds per plant. The result, in 2013, is a deeply concentrated wine, its ripe black plum and anise flavors enriched with notes of vanilla and dark spice from 18 months in new French oak barriques. Still fresh three days after opening, the flavors begin to flesh out further, unfolding in a seamless texture, brimming with energy and filling the palate with lush blackberry and plum flavors. Juicy acidity and a streak of graphite hold the flavors aloft. Cellar this for a few years to pour with beef cheek agnolotti.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A lush, fruity style, this red features cherry, raspberry, vanilla, toast and leather flavors. Needs to absorb the oak and find equilibrium on the long finish, where a mineral element emerges. Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2025.
