|Torrione, Petrolo||2007||Italy||6 x 75cl||£160||1||89 VM|
(100% sangiovese; 15 months in barriques, one-third new) Ruby-red. Aromas of ripe red cherry, oregano and mint are lifted by a pretty citrus peel note. Suave, dense and ripe on entry, with chewy red cherry and strawberry flavors complicated by hints of sweet spices and underbrush. Not as closed in on itself today as the '08, but this will also benefit from at least another year of bottle aging. Finishes smooth and long.
