Absolutely gorgeous Merlot at peak maturity. One of the best wines I've had this year. Deep garnet. Concentrated, layered, and changing. Enticing tobacco notes on top of everything. Persistent.2004.

Surprisingly showing more maturity than I would have thought. With plenty of plum and wild berry, leather and spice. Tannins are smooth as silk, so no shame in opening now.

Stunning wine from a very good vintage . 2004 Petrolo Galatrona is a gigantic wine, complex , structured , and in highly intense. This 100% merlot could stand side by side with Petrus .
