Galatrona - Fattoria Petrolo
 

Dear Wine Lover,

 

Last night the latest issue of the Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate was released. Out of the over 600 wines that were released the most interesting, especially to us, was to see that finally also Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate discovered a wine that we have been loving, recommending, drinking, and promoting since a very long time: Galatrona from Fattoria Petrolo.

 

The wine was rated very high especially for the recent vintages, the 2013 was rated 97+, not many Italian wine producers have this kind of ratings, just to name the perhaps most famous Italian wine, Sassicaia just has the legendary 1985 that has a higher rating, all other vintages have a smaller rating and the all cost about 2/3 times.

 

Here is a short introduction of the Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “During my last visit to Petrolo, Luca Sanjust offered to organize a mini vertical of his flagship wine Galatrona. How could I resist? Galatrona is one of Italy's top Merlots and the wine has done much to establish the grape's heritage outside celebrated areas such as Pomerol. In fact, the wine is often compared to great expressions from France, but ultimately Galatrona is most distinguished by its sweet and sunny Tuscan disposition. Galatrona was first produced in 1994 and fruit comes from a single vineyard site located adjacent to Petrolo's main building and winery. The wine was produced every year since then, except 1996. Luca tells me that wild boars ate the entire production that year. Just a few dozen bottles of the 1994, 1995 and 1997 vintages still exist at the winery today. Sadly, Luca only has two bottles of the excellent 2007 vintage in his possession.”

 

Luckily we are one of biggest buyers of Galatrona as we see incredible value in it, please find here bellow rating and prices of what we can offer:

 

75.0 cl Galatrona - Fattoria Petrolo - 2013 CHF 85.00 (CHF 91.80 Vat Incl.)

Magnum (150.0cl) at CHF 175.00 (CHF 189.00 Vat Incl.)

Double Magnum (300.0cl) at CHF 375.00 (CHF 405.00 Vat Incl.)

Imperial (600.0cl) at CHF 750.00 (CHF 810.00 Vat Incl.)

Robert Parker "97+" Points: 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._During my last visit to Petrolo, Luca Sanjust offered to organize a mini vertical of his flagship wine Galatrona.

James Suckling "98" Points: 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.

 

75.0 cl Galatrona - Fattoria Petrolo - 2014 CHF 55.00 (CHF 59.40 Vat Incl.)

Primat (2700.0cl) at CHF 3’888.90 (CHF 4’200.00 Vat Incl.)

James Suckling "95" Points: The polish and fine texture to this 2014 is impressive with blueberry, dark chocolate and light walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body, integrated tannins and a long, refined finish. Serious sense for the vintage. Better in 2017.

The 2015 is to us, but also according to Luca Sanjust the greatest vintage ever produced for Galatrona, the only available ratings are following, the wine is offered pre–arrival at this special price. Availability of the wines will be Octobre-November 2017.

James Suckling "96-97" Points: The depth of fruit and intensity of tannins that set this Galatrona aside are some of the most impressive in years. Full body, velvety tannins and a long finish. A new 2004?
