Overview

Petri is a riserva from this fine Tuscan estate. As the vineyard is more than 20 years old, this is a low-yield vintage that guarantees excellent wine quality and it combines vigour and high potential for just the right ageing. This wine can either be drunk immediately or aged for some years.
