    • "Zingari" Rosso Toscana IGT 2015

      “Zingari” Rosso Toscana IGT 2015

      Zingari, a blend of Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese, has a dark ruby red colour and a characteristic Maremma aroma. Warm and round on the palate with notes of blueberries, blackberries and spices. A complex wine that will surely find many admirers. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Petra" Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      “Petra” Rosso Toscana IGT 2016

      Radiant ruby with violet tint. In the nose, initially notes of rosemary and cardamom, then ripe dark cherries and dark currants. Smoothed and balanced, the winery's flagship wine first reveals a precise fruit, then opens up with finely woven, gripping tannins, and in the final a very long final is thrilling. This wine is an exceptional phenomenon: distinguishedly elegant, impressively seductive and long lasting. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A medium-bodied red with currant, floral and orange-peel character. It’s medium-bodied with integrated tannins and a fruity finish. A little in reserve right now. Drinkable now, but better after 2022." James Suckling

    About the winemakers
    Petra
    Tuscany | Maremma
    Petra

    The beautiful Petra winery in Suvereto is part of Gruppo Terra Moretti, the wine empire of the Lombard developer Vittorio Moretti, which extends over several vineyards. It is run by his daughter Francesca. Moretti chose the southernmost tip of the province of Livorno for its headquarters, with the ferruginous hills of the Val di Cornia. Sangiovese also grows and thrives there in a Mediterranean microclimate, although this autochthonous grape variety is not exactly typical of the Maremma. In 2006, however, the plots intended for this type of grape and situated on a gentle hill in the hinterland for the first time produced exceptional qualities. All the vineyards of the relatively young company were planted by Francesca Moretti in collaboration with the internationally renowned Italian "pope of postures" Attilio Scienza is analyzing and researching.

    In the vineyards, red varieties are cultivated on rich soils - among them the Tuscan flagship varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but also some Syrah and Alicante. The grapes are processed into wines that have become more and more convincing stylistically over the years. The slopes of the Petra vineyard are also planted with white Malvasia, Trebbiano, Clarette and Vermentino varieties. These grapes are intended for sweet wines.

    In the modern and functional cellar designed by the famous architect Mario Botta - it is one of the most impressive buildings of its kind in the world - the oenologists Beppe Caviola and Augusto Graziano are responsible for the vinification. In the cellar, the use of machinery is minimised during grape processing and must production. The production cycle is modern and practical, but never far from tradition. The berries are processed according to the principle of gravity. Among the very different estate wines, the Petra Rosso, a blend of Merlot and Cabernet, is the real performer of the house. Recently, however, the potenti pressed from Cabernet Sauvignon in pure varieties has also been able to convince at tastings time and again.

    In addition to Petra, the vineyard kingdom of Moretti also includes the Tuscan estate La Badiola, located in Castiglione della Pescaia, as well as Bellavista and Contadi Castaldi, two farms in Franciacorta. SUPERIORE.DE
