WineO Mark Review

This wine has a deep and rich ruby color on the glass with violet highlights. It has an appealing and intense aroma filled with ripe blackberries, black currants, dark cherries, blueberries, and cocoa. This is followed by notes of tobacco, toasted oak, and spices.

On the palate, it’s full-bodied, has a characteristic feature, is rich, and complex. This wine is dense, has enveloping tannins, and has a complex and long finish. There are flavors of blackberries, plums, black cherries, espresso, and mocha with hints of oak, licorice, dried thyme, and tobacco.

The finish is long and lingering, with a hint of minerality that adds complexity and elegance to the wine. It is clear that the winemakers at Petrolo have paid meticulous attention to detail at every step, from the vineyard to the cellar.
