Lovely aromas of sweet fruit, flowers such as violets and black olives. Sandalwood undertones. Full body and extremely fine tannins. Persistent and sexy. Shows such intensity and finesse. Drink in 2019.

Turns more elegant and complex with air. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2019 through 2025. 700 cases imported. –BS

The bouquet is soft and sunny with red fruit aromas, cherry and crème de cassis. The wine offers a mid-weight finish with bright acidity that is characteristic of Sangiovese. This wine is, in fact, mostly Sangiovese with smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This vintage tastes more immediate and accessible. - Monica Larner

Bright fruit and expressive floral notes give the Torrione striking energy. Hints of smoke, tobacco and game add further shades of complexity as the wine gains volume and nuance with air. Above all else, though, what stands out is an emphasis on energy that is quite a departure from the Petrolo style of years past. The 2015 is a winner. Don’t miss it.
