Galatrona is the “Grand Cru” of Merlot of Petrolo, only made with the grapes from the vineyard of the same name planted between the end of the 80’s and half of the 90’s with low vigor bordeaux clones. The peculiar soil, rich in clay in combination with schist, marl and sandstones, allows the concentration of all the noble components of the grapes, fundamental for the great structure, elegance, balance and persistence wanted for this wine.
Among the best vintages ever with extraordinary results for quality and quantity. The winter cold and rain showers
came late. Spring was very pleasant and sunny with temperatures slightly above average. The summer maintained warm temperatures without excess and limited rainfall. These conditions supported a balanced growth and perfect ripening.
