Wine of intense garnet red color.
The wine has a full, rich flavor, which felt languid notes of cherry and fruit jam, profitable shaded nuances of coffee and spice: rosemary and myrtle. Well-integrated tannins combines with fresh acidity of wine.
Deep, complex and persistent aroma of the wine shows a tone of black fruit and berries, soft shades of spices.
The wine is a perfect accompaniment meats, red meat, vegetables, grilled, combined with mature cheeses.
Wine "Petra", proudly bearing the name of its manufacturer, created from a combination of two classic international grape varieties - Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Both varieties are well adapted to the Tuscan soil. Traditional blend combines elegance and softness of Merlot, which is sensitive to drought and therefore prefers hilly terrain, and perseverance Cabernet Sauvignon, who takes the most out of rich fertile soil to get the power of taste and aroma. Harvesting is carried out from late August until mid-September, fermentation occurs naturally in large oak casks. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak barrels, only a small part of which - the new. Period of aging in oak barriques is 18 months, after which the wine is bottled and aged for another 18 months.
Special philosophy of wine "Peter" is marked on the label, which shows three circles in vertical progression. They seem to represent the triad of land-sky-man. All the circles intersect, forming a unity, indicating an integral part of each component in the overall system of the relationship between man and nature.
Modernity "Petra" can be seen in the scientific approach, which is used in the process of growing grapes and creating a unique wine. And even building the winery, specially designed by the Swiss architect Mario Botta, striking modernist spirit. Winery "Peter" is part of the group of companies "Terra Moretti", which is owned by the founder of "Petra" - Vittorio Moretti. Today holding company operates in four directions and, in winemaking, succeeds in building, construction of shipyards and tourism business.
