Petrolo Torrione Toscana 2013

This is the kind of wine and the kind of deal that makes us excited to show up for work every day! Seriously folks, we have some bad a$$ Super Tuscan on offer at well over half off the regular price. Drinking this magnificent Sangiovese based blend is so pleasurable and so interesting that you’re going to flip when you try it. Even after only brief decanting the nose is awash with the scent of an English garden in full bloom. More delicate hints of pipe tobacco, cold espresso, and a touch of antique store make appearances as the floral overtones begin to fade. Then, on the palate, you’ll get a wonderful, medium bodied textured red that delivers lush flavors of black currants, cassis, licorice, and mocha. As delicious as this one is on the palate, and yeah it’s real freaking tasty, the finish is ethereal. The wine posts up and makes itself at home with no indication that it is ever going to quit. Liquefied mineral, mocha, cigar box, incense, and forest floor all gently drift into and out of focus as the wine ever-so-slowly fades between sips. What may be the most appealing feature of this wine is its balance. It’s not out to get you with bold tannin and massive fruit. Instead it lures you in, seduces you even, and then it slowly reveals itself to you as you swirl and sniff and repeat. Drink this beauty over the next 5 years.

Food Pairing:
The 2013 Torrione is a food wine at its core. It is bold and rich yet it is supple and generous at the same time. Pairing it with an elegant, ingredient driven meal is going to be your best bet. Homemade pasta carbonara would be outstanding with it. A beautiful dry aged bone-in ribeye seasoned with nothing but good salt would also rock and roll. Or you could keep it simple and pair it up with a plate of cured meats and cheeses and a big ole hunk of crusty bread. In any case, the 2013 Torrione is going to make you all sorts of happy.
