($130; 100% merlot; 18 months in all-new barriques; 14.3% alcohol) Inky black-purple. Spicy black cherry and forest floor aromas are complicated by very intense, pure notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet and fleshy on entry, with nicely balanced milk chocolate and black plum flavors complemented by minerals, herbs and more coffee. Large-scaled and broad on the back end, finishing with peppery yet silky-smooth tannins and a salty edge. This mesmerizing wine will not let go of your palate. Not the most refined version of merlot you'll ever try, but sure to be one of the most impressive.

Wine Advocate Author: Antonio Galloni Issue: 191

Petrolo's 2007 Galatrona (Merlot) is another of the successes of the vintage. It is a dark, seamless Galatrona packed with dark fruit, cassis, minerals and French oak. Despite the wine's opulence and richness, the fruit retains considerable clarity as well as nuance. Today the French oak is a touch pronounced, but in a few years this dense, plush Merlot from impeccably-farmed hillside vineyards should be firing on all cylinders.

This has a great color, with fabulous aromas of crushed blackberry, violet, toasty oak and black olive. Full-bodied, with powerful, ripe tannins and amazing flavors of blueberry, dark chocolate and toast. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Reminds me of the 1989 Pétrus. A stunning Merlot.

Initially very tight, but opened up beautifully with a little time and air. Less acidity than many Tuscans. Great with food but also a good sipping wine.
