Petra

Cabernet sauvignon 70%, merlot 30%

The embodiment of the project, whose name it bears, Petra tells timeless tales with new words.

The grapes, mostly cabernet sauvignon with some merlot, are grown on calcareous soils with a good balance of clay and rocky backbone. Ideal soils, well-suited to the varietals grown on them but most of all able to transmit their distinctive characteristics.

Tasting

Tasting notes

The ruby red color with flashes of garnet heralds a bouquet with a powerful impact, characterized by intense notes of wild berries, black cherry and mediterranean scrub and intriguing hints of mint, rosemary, peppercorn and tobacco.

On the palate it is sumptuous, full and elegant, powerful but perfectly balanced, with a fitting aromatic profile. The velvety tannins put the final touches on a fresh and aristocratic base, with a sapid and persistent balsamic finish.

Production method

The production method is strictly aimed at defending the territorial connotation.

To preserve and valorize all this, they are processed meticulously at the winery, using non-invasive methods: the bunches are brought there in crates, and natural fermentation is carried out using local yeasts, in 100 hl tapered oak vats. Finally comes 18 months of aging in barriques – new, once- and twice-used – and a mediumlight toasting that accompanies and exalts the fruit without ever overpowering it. An equally long period is spent in the bottle before the wine leaves the cellars.
