Petra Hebo Toscana IGT

2017

In a Nutshell

Bordeaux-style supertuscan.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are fresh aromas of black cherry, violet and blueberries which are complemented by hints of vanilla and minerality. On the palate, it is fresh and savoury with well-integrated tannins.

Production Notes

Fermentation took place in stainless-steel vats at controlled temperatures with natural yeasts. The wine was mostly matured in Slavonian oak barrels. A small proportion was aged in French oak barriques (second- and third-use) for 10 months before additional ageing in tank prior to bottling. The wine was then aged in bottle for 10 months before release.
