Robert Parker (93)

The 2016 Val d'Arno di Sopra Torrione is mostly Sangiovese with smaller parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The bouquet opens to ripe cherry and dried raspberry with moist earth, exotic spice and chewing tobacco. The wine is plush and rich with a hint of that tangy Sangiovese acidity on the close. This wine was first produced in 1988, and some 50,000 bottles are made today.

James Suckling (95)

Aromas of dried flowers, dried berries, cherries and hints of stones. Full-bodied, very firm and silky. An intense underlying energy of acidity and a lovely finish. 75% sangiovese, 20% merlot and 5% cabernet sauvignon. One of the best ever?

Falstaff (93)

Deep ruby red with a slight red-brick tinge. Exuberant plums, a little Amarena cherry, seems very fragrant and distinct. Salty on the palate, followed by juicy tannins embracing the well-balanced acidity, opening up broadly with fresh fruity nuances, vibrancy, good length. Juicy finish.

Winespectator (92)

Fresh earth and graphite aromas lead off in this version, finding its feet with cherry, raspberry, currant and floral notes midpalate. Hints of earth, mineral and tobacco add depth as this plays out on the finish. Shows fine elegance and harmony. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vinous (91)

Petrolo's Torrione is quite pretty and gracious in 2016. Aromatically expressive and pliant, this Sangiovese-based entry-level offering has a lot to offer. Dollops of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon round out this juicy Sangiovese-based blend.
