Petrolo Estate Wine Tasting - Day 2 - Vinexx
Date: Jun 04/13, Tue Time: 05:30:00-07:30:00 Style: Sit-Down
Petrolo Estate Wine Tasting - The first of two evenings, Petrolo’s Luca Sanjust, Vinexx, and the Fine Wine Reserve invited our members to this intimate tasting of Fine & Rare wines from one of the most celebrated and acclaimed producers of “Super Tuscan” wines.
Petrolo’s record of excellence in winemaking and commitment to unique, terroir driven expressions of Merlot and Sangiovese have made the house a darling of collectors the world over. It was our distinct pleasure to bring these great wines to Ontario, and to welcome Luca Sanjust to Toronto.
Leaving an acclaimed career in fine art, Luca Sanjust embarked on a hermitage to Bordeaux, in search of inspiration amid the vineyards and wineries of the storied region.
Convinced of his land's potential for the grape, Luca returned home to Tuscany and replanted his best vineyards to Merlot, determined to employ all he had learned abroad in pursuit of a new direction in Italian winemaking.
Sibnce then, Luca's wines have earned more than 27 ratings of 90 pts and higher from Wine Spectator - 10 "Classic" ratings of 95-98 pts - and comparisons to the legendary Chateau Petrus.
They are adored by collectors around the world for their classic, rarified, utterly unique character.
Luca's vision and commitment to excellence have lifted Petrolo from humble beginnings to the very top of the wine world.
A very fine time had by all. Many thanks to Alex Palmer and Luca Sanjust for hosting such a tremendous presentation. We all look forward to a Luca's return visit next year.
