This wine is produced from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, varieties that turned out to be ideal for the types of soil on the Petra estate. Each of them found the most suitable soil for bringing out the distinctive features that characterize Petra’s unique elegance and style – the balsamicity of the Mediterranean, the minerality of Tuscany, and the proverbial natural acidity favoured by the salinity of the earth, which is indispensable in creating exemplary wines closely linked to the personality of the land. The most highly appreciated connotations of the two varieties are clearly expressed in this wine – the elegance and smoothness of Merlot, which is sensitive to drought and thus prefers a cool hillside position, and the character of Cabernet Sauvignon, which thrives best in mineral-rich soils, not overly fertile and well drained.
Intense ruby red in colour, concentrated and very clear.
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. Notes of chocolate and coffee complete and give body to the bouquet.
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.

Petra

From this winery:
Petra, like "pietra" (stone) in Latin. Like the solidity of work, which both Francesca and Vittorio Moretti (father and daughter) have based their project upon. Like the historic fragments found out in these lands, giving evidence of a far away past ...
