Merlot sure has become the Tuscan darling. Surely you'll recognize the wines Ornaliaia Masseto and Tua Rita Redigaffi, and others notable mentions that are indeed Super Tuscans of Merlot – The Pomerol of Italy. Compared with Chateau Le Pin in style and limited production, Galatrona is the 'reasonably' priced' collectible Merlot Super – for now.


Aromas of blackberries, black olives, green olive, and violets. It’s really aromatic. Full-bodied, yet so precise and polished with creamy, layered tannins that caress your palate. It’s extremely persistent and goes on for minutes. Only 40% new wood. Really balanced. All about purity and complexity From organically grown grapes. Try after 2023.
