70% Cabernet Sauvignon , 30% Merlot
The flagship wine of the Petra estate, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is from the best plots on the estate. The Merlot is elegant and supple, grown on the cooler, hillside sites, while the Cabernet is grown on the flatter land.
his 300 hectare estate, created by the Moretti family of Bellavista, is situated in Suvereto in the Val di Cornia, Tuscany. When Vittorio Moretti, together with his daughter Francesca, set out in search of a property in the Maremma in 1997, they asked Attilio Scienza, Italy's most celebrated viticultural professor and consultant, to help them find the best spot. Scienza came up with Petra (the name is derived from the Latin for stone, or 'pietra' in Italian), which is to the south east of Bolgheri and inland from, although facing, the sea. The estate now has 94 hectares of vineyard across three separate plots, which surround a splendid modernist winery built by the Swiss architect Mario Botta. Francesca Moretti.
In the glass, this wine has a bright ruby red colour. The bouquet is full of red fruit, with hints of black cherry and blueberry. The wine has excellent balance and length with a tangy finish of blackberry and dried fruit.
