Petra Hebo Suvereto DOCG

2016

In a Nutshell

Bordeaux-style supertuscan.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red in colour. The bouquet is full of red fruit, with hints of black cherry and blueberry. A very approachable palate with excellent balance and length showing warm blackberry fruit and notes of dried fruit on the finish. Thoroughly delicious already!

Production Notes

Fully ripe grapes were harvested from the end of August until mid-September before fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine was mostly matured in Slovenian oak barrels; a small proportion was aged in French oak barriques (second- and third-use) for 12 months before additional ageing in tank prior to bottling. The wine was then aged in bottle for 12 months before release.

Press Quotes & Awards

What a beautiful nose of blueberries, elderberries, crushed stones and pressed violets. Full body, fine and juicy tannins that surround a tight core of fresh plums and a medium-long, very minerally finish.
