Hebo Rosso Toscana IGT - Petra

In jargon, one speaks of a Bordeaux blend to indicate those wines, produced all over the world, that are born from the happy marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Both varieties from the French region of Bordeaux lend themselves, in the various countries, to the addition of some native vines to complete the blend and make it closer to the tastes of that particular market. Thus, in Tuscany, Cabernet and Merlot are often blended with Sangiovese in the production of wines that, by convention, are defined as Super Tuscan. Such is the case with this Hebo from Petra. The grapes, harvested by hand only when fully ripe, are skilfully processed with great attention to fermentation temperatures. The wine produced is left to mature in the cellar for a period of no less than one year in Slavonian oak casks and, to a small extent, in barriques. The result is a wine characterized by an intense ruby red colour. To the nose, red and black fruit dominate over everything, leaving room only for a slight spiciness due to the expert aging in wood. On the palate, however, it is well-structured. Justly tannic and pleasantly long finish.

The Moretti family has chosen a particular corner of Tuscany for its arrival in what is considered Italy's most incredible wine region. Suvereto, in the province of Livorno, on the hills overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is here that the family decided to invest, creating the Petra Farm. A modern, beautiful and functional winery designed by Mario Botta, an important Swiss architect who wanted to create a true pagan cathedral dedicated to the god Bacchus. The vineyards stand on different areas and surfaces, capable of giving life to high-end wines with unique characteristics. Wines that do not disdain a profound bond with their territory but at the same time know how to take a look at an increasingly global market that also appreciates the use of international grape varieties, elaborated with the usual Italian good taste and great attention to detail. Wines that amaze for their finesse and elegance and that, precisely for this reason, do not struggle to find their rightful place on the tables of many enthusiasts.
