Fattoria Petrolo - Toscana Galatrona 2018...$104.98 / 750ml
Tuscan Merlot? Absolutely! Tuscany might still be synonymous with Sangiovese, but it has also been referred to as the Pomerol of Italy because of how well Merlot grows on the sun-drenched hills that border the Chianti Classico DOCG. Wines like Masseto by Ornellaia and Tua Rita Redigaffi are infamous for their sky-high reviews and price tags. Why claw for the miniscule allocations of $800 Masseto when you can get the 'reasonably' priced' collectible Merlot -- Galatrona?!
