    Fabulous aromas of crushed berries, milk chocolate and flowers. Very complex and multilayered. Full-bodied, with gorgeous flavors and an ultrafine finish. Goes on and on. The high quality and subtlety of the tannins is impressive. Greatest ever from this producer. Le Pin of Tuscany. Merlot. 1,000 cases made.

    The estate's 2004 Galatrona (100% Merlot) is a stunner. Dark ruby in hue, it is wonderfully alive, bursting from the glass with an irresistible array of tobacco, smoke, dark cherries, tobacco, menthol, spice and roasted coffee bean nuances that are delicately interwoven in its silky-textured frame. This gorgeous effort is hard to resist today, yet its superb length and finessed tannins indicate it is built to age gracefully. While not inexpensive, Petrolo's Galatrona offers terrific relative value in today's marketplace. It is not to be missed. Readers who want to experience the sheer pleasure Galatrona can provide should check out the 2000, which is drinking beautifully now.

    Wonderfully concentrated with dark berries. Good balance of fruit to alcohol. I don't know how this will get better as integration tastes complete. Certainly drink this wine after any Pinot, Brunello, Barolo, and some cabs. It is very dominant.
