PETRA IGT TOSCANA 2012

Petra

$113.00

Grapes: Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Estate: Tuscany

Colour: Burgundy red colour, with intense louminouse nuances.

Nose: Intense complex nose, alcoholic yet decidedly elegant and persistent. Marked scent of red fruit and jam, an explosion of marasca and wild black cherries with traces of minerals, eucalyptus and Mediterranean myrtle. 

Palate: Important, intense full-bodied taste, enveloping and well balanced, giving fullness to the entire palate. Well-rounded, sweet tannins, not overly aggressive; well blended with the acidity, sapidity and alcohol. Pleasing progression; good aromatic return is a continual stimulus to seek a new pleasure revealing the Mediterranean soul of this wine.

Food Pairings: Pairs excellently with steaks and chops, rich meaty pasta dishes or well-aged strong flavoured cheeses.
