James Suckling 98 Points
"Aromas of blackberries, black olives, green olive, and violets. It's really aromatic. Full-bodied, yet so precise and polished with creamy, layered tannins that caress your palate. It's extremely persistent and goes on for minutes. Only 40% new wood. Really balanced. All about purity and complexity From organically grown grapes. Try after 2023"

Decanter 97 Points "A 100% Merlot cuvée that totally delivers. This is seductive with tons of finesse and layers of liquorice and olive paste with grip and smoked swirls of grilled oak. I love the confidence and complexity of this wine. 2018 had less extreme temperatures than 2017 in this corner of Chianti, and it gives a lilting freshness while still guarding the wild fig and rosemary aromatics that give a sense of place. Fermentation is in small barrels and amphoras, with manual punching down of the skins. Overall, a gorgeous wine and an extremely easy bottle to recommend. 20,000 bottles, with the Place de Bordeaux responsible for all distribution outside of Italy. Organic certified since 2016. Owner and winemaker Luca Sanjust worked with the late Denis Durantou of L'Eglise Clinet during the early years of Petrolo, and certainly you can see some of the deft playing with the possibilities of Merlot that became the signature of both men.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95-97 "Tasted from barrel, the gorgeous 2018 Galatrona promises much beauty to come. Luca Sanjust says that this is the most Pomerol of the Merlot-based Galatronas he has created, and indeed, the wine boasts impeccable balance and depth. You get some of the balsam herb notes that I found in the 2017 vintage, although those are greatly downplayed here, giving more room to cherry and blackberry fruit instead. The 2018 vintage offers energy, freshness and tonic fruit. Underground water reserves were plentiful in 2018, and the fruit ripened slowly and harmoniously, creating textural richness and succulence."

Luca Gardini 99+ Points "Ancora una prova entusiasmante per il purosange aziendale (da Merlot in purezza), che mostra tempra vigorosa ma soprattutto rotondità, derivata da mani fatate, sia in vigna che in cantina. Profumi netti e puliti di frutti rossi, con un finale di alloro, bocca croccante, con ritorno di agrumi e finale fresco e salmastro"
