More fantastic reactions to the Galatrona 2007 from the Tre Bicchieri tastings, this time from Amy and Levi at the VinFolio blog. Amy’s assessment is spot on (though we’re still going to do 2006 v. 2007 tastings 20 years from now).

At the 2010 Tre Bicchieri tasting last week, Levi and I made sure not to miss a Tuscan rarity, the 100% Merlot Petrolo Galatrona. The 2006 version set the bar high, with 95- and 96-point ratings from The Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator, respectively. As 2006 was an extraordinary vintage for the region, this is not surprising. 2007 was a bit more challenging, but, according to Antonio Galloni’s vintage profile, the top producers came away with generous, approachable wines.

Levi’s comments make exactly the right connection. Galatrona really is the Le Pin of Tuscany.
