Petrolo, Galatrona, IGT Toscana 1998
Bottle Size: 75cl
Region: Italy: Tuscany
Grape Variety: Merlot
Critic Score: A good value is the 1998 Terre di Galatrona, a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 30% Merlot aged in oak for 12 months prior to bottling. Its medium dark ruby color is accompanied by spicy, leathery, dried herb, and berry fruit aromas, an elegant, stylish personality, good harmony, and well-integrated acidity and tannin. It is meant to be drunk over the next 2-3 years. Tasted August 2000. 86 Points, Robert M Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate.
