Petra Potenti Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana IGT 2017
Petra is a boutique winery in the heart of Tuscany, Maremma. Described as a women’s company, its progress has been directed by women for more than 200 years: from Elisa Bonaparte to Francesca Moretti.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the estate’s vineyard where grapevines grow from clay and rocky soils. The production method aims at defending the territorial connotation. Fermentation occurs in 100 hl tapered oak vats. The wine then ages in barriques for 18 months and before maturing further in the bottle.
Brilliant ruby colour. The aromatic framework is dense and rich with shades of blackberry and blueberry jam, black cherries. A thick cover of spices, chocolate coffee, and a burst of herbs and balsam envelope the dark fruit core. The palate is bold and structured with copious, rounded tannins. Dynamic and powerful with a fresh and full character.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
A ripe, savory red with plum, berry, and chocolate character. Medium body, round and savory tannins and a pretty finish.
