Petrolo, Torrione 2009 IGT Toscana:
Olives, juicy blackcurrant, pepper spice. There's something about this that really grabs your attention. A certain minerality? Restraint? Whatever it is, it's lovely.
Rated 17.5+/20 - Drink 2012 to 2019

The 2009 Torrione impresses for its sensual inner perfume, silky tannins and gracious overall balance. Sweet red cherries, strawberry jam, crushed flowers, herbs and spices meld together in this tasty red. Torrione isnít the great bargain it once was, but is still a great introduction to the wines of Petrolo. This medium-bodied, feminine Sangiovese-based red is best enjoyed over the next 5-7 years, while the fruit is vibrant. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.

Black currant, licorice, cedar and sandalwood flavors highlight this dense, sinewy red, which is firm and tannic, with a lingering aftertaste of spice. Decant now or cellar short term. Sangiovese. Best from 2014 through 2020. 600 cases imported. ĖBS

Aromas of lightly stewed fruit, with hints of fresh herbs and spices. Full bodied, with soft tannins and a fruity finish. This is balanced and long, with a caressing finish. Best ever. Mostly Sangiovese, with a hint of Merlot. Better after 2013.

Description
Winery Notes:

Torrione is made entirely from pure Sangiovese grapes, both those that come from historic vines of the 70s and ones more recently planted with high density. The yield per plant is notably restricted (max 2.5 lbs per vine plant), allowing a concentration of all the noble components of the grape, fundamental for the full-bodied character of this wine. The maceration on the skins lasts for 14 days. Afterwards, the malolactic fermentation takes place, partly in French barrels of 225 liters and partly in 30 Hl oak barrels. The wine then is aged in French oak barriques, one third new, for approximately 15 months.
