Dear Wine Lover,
The most awaited Petrus of Italy Galatrona 2016 is now available at pre-arrival offer. We have already been asked many times and by many of our clients about an offer on the new vintage of Galatrona, which is once again delivering on of the greatest wine of italy and fortunately still at a very good price considering its top quality.
Galatrona from Fattoria Petrolo, finally announced their 2016 vintage and we couldnt be more excited, rated 97-98 points by James Suckling stating This could equal the great 2015! it turns out again as a fantastic success. We strongly suggested Galatrona as it is in our opinion one of the greatest italian wines and one of the most undervalued. If the vinery would be situated in Bordeaux, this would definitely cost at least 3 time the price! You purchased some previous vintages of Galatrona in the past, so I wanted to offer you this pre-released of their great 2016 vintage at fascinating discounted prices, valid only until 31.07.2018.
Last year the Robert Parker Wine Advocate issued a special report on this magical propriety by making a vertical tasting and rating most vintages between 94 and 98 Points, and stating that Luca Sanjusts Petrolo makes a world-class Merlot called Galatrona, and confirming that the wine is aging very well with the years, not only Parker has highlighted the quality of this 100% Merlot but also James Suckling who in his special ranking of the Top wines of 2017 (which includes 17'000 wines he and his team tasted in 2017) was ranked Galatrona 2015 wine number 2 of the year. This ranking does not only take into consideration the quality of the wine, but also its price!
Luckily we have been one of the biggest believers and promoters of this wine before the Press jumped on the wine and thanks to our excellent relationship with the producer, we are happy to offer you this pre-release of Galatrona 2016 at very special discounted prices. In our opinion, it is undoubtedly one of the greatest Italian wines ever produced, yet it is still extremely undervalued in price. Made from 100% Merlot, like the legends - Masseto, Messorio and Redigaffi - Galatrona is a steal! Available for 1/3 or even 1/10 of the price, Galatrona is an accessible wine super pleasant at young age, but can also be aged for 10-20 years.
Consistently one of the best pure Merlot wines in the world, this 'Super Tuscan' always shows very well in blind tastings and often eclipses some of the very best wines in Pomerol. Their tiny production is more close to Burgundy than Tuscany and they rigorously restrict the yields, forcing the grapes to complete maturation to help give the wine Petrus-like tannin ripeness. Galatrona is emerging as one of the great Merlots not just of Italy, but the world here bellow some quotes from the major interational press about Galatrona:
"It could hold its own in a blind tasting with the finest Pomerols" - Robert Parker
"Petrolos Galatrona offers terrific relative value in todays marketplace. It is not to be missed" - Antonio Galloni
"I fall in love with this wine year after year" - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"I have long been a huge fan - and I have been known on occasion to call his Galatrona the Le Pin of Tuscany" - James Suckling
