The Moretti family, owners of the famous Bellavista winery in Franciacorta founded Petra in the late 1990's. The estate is in Maremma in the Val di Cornia. They have 240 acres and an incredible modern gravity flow winery designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. The grapes for this, their most affordable selection, were hand-picked in late August. They undergo a short maceration of a maximum of 7-10 days. Fermentation and extended maceration take place in stainless steel tanks. The Wine Advocate said about this wine "The 2010 Zingari bursts from the glass with juicy dark berries, flowers, spices and mint. This is a hugely overachieving wine that delivers remarkable quality for the money. I would prefer to drink the 2010 while it remains fresh, vibrant and juicy. It is a great wine for the money. Zingari is Merlot, Sangiovese, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2014."
