PETRA TOSCANA PETRA ROSSO
Production of this wine begins with two classic international varietals, Merlot and Cabernet sauvignon. Two grapes that have proven to be perfectly suited to the soils of Petra. For each one the company has identified the most suitable terroir for ensuring that the wine is recognisable. Here, the qualities of the two varietals have been able to fully express themselves: the elegance and suppleness of Merlot, which is sensitive to drought and therefore prefers hilly, fresher lands, and the character of Cabernet sauvignon, which prefers soils rich in gravel, largely infertile and with good water capacity.
The burgundy red colour, with intense and luminous nuances, is concentration but also purity and gravity. The bouquet is deep, complex and long. In the mouth it is serious, sinuous and particularly well-balanced. Rounded on the palate, it is enchanted by notes of dark berry jam and nuances of Morello cherry, which are joined by hints of rosemary and myrtle and the spicy scent of coffee.
