PETROLO GALATRONA 2019
Vinification: Manual harvest in crates and further grape selection with sorting table. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts in glazed concrete vats. Soft and frequent manual pumping over. Long macerations.
Aging: Spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation in wood. Maturation for about 18/20 months in rigourously selected French oak tonneaux and barriques, new for about a third. Constant batonnage of the fine lees for the first 8 months.
Style: Intense elegant wine with great structure and complexity, lovely balance between acidity, fruit and tannins. A great wine, beyond the grape varietal it’s made from, must talk of the piece of land it came from. Beyond being mainly good, it has to be a classic in its own way.
