The embodiment of the project, whose name it bears, Petra tells timeless tales with new words. The grapes, mostly cabernet sauvignon with some merlot, are grown on calcareous soils with a good balance of clay and rocky backbone. Ideal soils, well-suited to the varietals grown on them but most of all able to transmit their distinctive characteristics.
Ruby red with garnet highlights.
Very rich and aromatic on the nose, with intense and powerful notes of wild berries, black cherry jam, rosemary, burnt wood, tobacco; then balsamic mint, spicy cinnamon and pepper to wrap up.
Lush, full-bodied and elegant in taste, with good structure and power. Velvety tannins, well-integrated in a design that is fresh and with an aristocratic sapidity. Persistent, consistent aftertaste, with spicy and balsamic finish.ortant, intense full-bodied taste, enveloping and well balanced, giving fullness to the entire palate. Well-rounded, sweet tannins, not overly aggressive; well blended with the acidity, sapidity and alcohol. Pleasing progression; good aromatic return is a continual stimulus to seek a new pleasure revealing the Mediterranean soul of this wine.

Petra

From this winery:
Petra, like "pietra" (stone) in Latin. Like the solidity of work, which both Francesca and Vittorio Moretti (father and daughter) have based their project upon. Like the historic fragments found out in these lands, giving evidence of a far away past ...
