WA 94, rescored to 98, JS 97, WS 90 Drinking Range 2017-2030 // "The super rich and velvety 2009 Galatrona s is a beautiful bottle that projects a deep sense of confidence and enormous beauty, inside and out. It offers an irresistible contrast between its sweet side and its savory side with dried cherry, blackberry preserves, scorched earth, smoked bacon and dark spice. The wine's appearance is inky black and thickly concentrated. Despite that richness, its nuanced complexity is put on clear display." - The Wine Advocate

This is a truly great Italian Merlot that needs time to shine. It is too young and does not show its full potential. It has a dark purple color, the nose is lovely and elegant, full of character with layers of black fruits and sweet spices, plums marmalade, black cherries, and sweet anis. Full body, fruity, nice acidity, well integrated tannins. Very young, needs time to evolve. My score 90, drink 2017-2028

If you put this out blind in you would never know this was 100% Italian merlot. Beautifully textured, sumptuous fruit without overt intensity, seamless, a true pleasure.

Big ripe plum with a hint of cedar and tobacco - a very tasty Merlot!
