Petra 2017 Zingari Toscana
Merlot, Sangiovese, Syrah, Petit Verdot | Alc: 14.0%
Zingari Toscana 2017 vintage from Petra traces its roots to an ancient water spring that was a stop-over for all those pilgrims and wayfarers who were travelling along the Aurelia Street, hence the name Zingari (Gypsies), and could seek refreshment by resting nearby its crystal clear waters
Highly concentrated ruby color, which introduces the Mediterranean aromatic notes of this wine.
Soft and full-bodied in mouth, it has a fresh flavor with good acidity and a structure with balsamic and mineral notes that make Zingari pleasant and interesting.
“A delicious red that shows red plums, brambleberries, undergrowth, cedar and freshly cut herbs. Medium to full body, delightful, juicy tannins and a tangy, medium-long finish. A blend with equal measures of merlot, sangiovese, syrah and petit verdot. Drink now or hold.” 93 Pts – James Suckling
“A well of dark cherry, black currant and blackberry fruit makes this red sumptuous and inviting. Fresh earth, thyme and rosemary accents add depth. A mineral element emerges on the long finish. Shows fine balance overall. Merlot, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Drink now through 2032.” 93 Pts – Wine Spectator
