Fattoria Petrolo Galatrona Merlot 2013

$65.99

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...So layered. Another example of finesse and beauty here with this pure merlot... James Suckling

Has brett on opening. Rich, dark fruit with tobacco. Needs air. This was probably too soon to open this guy but maybe with a decant it’ll be a different story. After a few hours decanting the wine shines more. The brett blew off and the nose is more perfumed. Still, it’s tightly wound and doesn’t display the brilliance that seemingly would come with a score that one critic gave it of 98 points. But I do wonder if with a few more years more layers will unfold.

Young. Lovely nose and structure. Needs time to soften and develop.
