Petrolo Torrione 2012 / 750 ml.

Item#: 41502

VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2014
The 2012 Torrione is seriously beautiful. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and mocha notes flesh out in a supple, radiant wine endowed with gorgeous depth and pure resonance. All the elements meld together in this gracious, juicy Sangiovese-based red from Petrolo. Dollops of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon round out the blend.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2014
Effusive aromas and flavors of cherry, strawberry and peony highlight this elegant red. Well-integrated tannins amp up the structure and density on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2023. 3,750 cases made.

Where It's From

Region / Tuscany

View more wines from Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Country / Italy

View more wines from Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.

RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 29th Oct 2015
Here’s a wine that is completely new to me (but I am thrilled by the introduction). The 2012 Carla 6 is a spectacular expression of 100% Sangiovese with bursting berry and cherry aromas that give the wine an immense sense of buoyancy and vertical lift. Spice, leather, tobacco, cola, and licorice flood in at the rear and add to the wine’s wide aromatic foundation. The tannins are silky smooth and the wine glides clear over the palate in seamless fashion. One third of the wine is aged in new oak and the rest sees six months of cement. It’s an absolute beauty.

The 2012 Carla VI, 100% Sangiovese, shows just how rich and concentrated Sangiovese can be in this part of Chianti Classico. Plum, red cherry, cinnamon and new leather flesh out in a sumptuous, large-scaled wine built on power and intensity. There is good varietal definition in the glass, but all the flavors are amped up.
