Each new vintage of Galatrona proves, year after year, the enormous potential of Italian Merlot. This is a soft and beautifully decadent wine with plush and perfectly ripe aromas of black cherry, light spice, chocolate and tobacco. The smoothness, richness and persistency is simply unbeatable. 98p James Suckling.

Year of First Vintage: 1994. Grape Variety: Merlot 100% Production: max. 20.000 bottiglie

Vintage: Galatrona is made from only Merlot grapes coming from the estate’s vines of the early 90’s. The yield per plant was notably limited (max 500 g per vine plant) allowing the concentration of all the noble components of the grape fundamental for the great structure, elegance, balance and persistence wanted for this wine.

Vinification the maceration of the skin lasts more than 14 days. The pumping overs are done with considerable care and very frequently to allow the complete extraction from the skins. 

The malolactic fermentation takes place in barriques, usually starting quickly and with regular development.

After the malolactic fermentation the wine rests in new French oak barriques for approximately 18 months. During this period the wine is left for the first 6 months on the fine lees, paying particular attention to its development. This process allows to achieve greater complexity. After bottling, the wine begins its usual refinement period of about 6 months.
