LE MACCHIOLE BOLGHERI ROSSO 2018
*online prices/offers might differ from prices at Vino Cultura cellar.
A very dear wine to Petrolo, wanted by Lucia Bazzocchi Sanjust in 1988 and made at the time with the help of former wine consultant Giulio Gambelli. Torrione marks the beginning of the winery’s new approach to winemaking aiming to produce wines of the highest quality.
Torrione is a photograph of Petrolo, a blend of the grapes from all the vineyards of Petrolo: not only Sangiovese from Bòggina but also from other historical vineyards of the winery including Merlot from Galatrona and Cabernet Sauvignon from Campo Lusso.
This wine keeps an eye to the secular Tuscan tradition of adding French varietals to Sangiovese which do not alter the character of our wines since it is the territory that prevails over the different varietals.
