Winemaker Notes: Torrione marks the beginning of the Petrolo’s quality revolution. It is considered to be the true identity of Petrolo, made with a blend of grapes from all of the estate’s vineyards. With a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Torrione is also in keeping with Tuscan tradition of adding Bordeaux varieties to Sangiovese and instilling a sense of place in the French varieties, lending them a distinctly Tuscan character.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "This vintage is an IGT Toscana wine instead of a Valdarno di Sopra appellation expression. The 2017 Torrione is mostly Sangiovese with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blended within. This is a full and complete wine that embraces all the heat and dryness of the vintage, and it incorporates those well, without appearing too heavy or rich. You feel the 2017 vintage heat in terms of the plumpness and darkness of the fruit, but the results are never overdone. It offers beautiful density and succulence. Rating: 92+
