This week, our wine Expert Vittoria, visited (amongst others) the beautiful wine estate Petra.
Celebrated around the world for their production of Franciacorta sparkling wines from Bellavista, the Moretti family started their new Tuscan venture in 1997 – Azienda Agricola Petra.
Based in Tuscany, the Petra estate lies close to the ancient village of Suvereto. Their vineyards are planted on the hills of Val di Corina, therefore Petra has the soul of Tuscan Maremma and the spirit of ancient times.
This modern and stunning property stands out as a top Tuscan wine producer, expressing the true quality of the terroir through the use of organic viticulture. Family-run by Vittorio Moretti and his daughter, Francesca, the state-of-the-art winery was designed by famed Swiss architect, Mario Botta.
The estate offers a wide range of elegant, yet powerful wines, including a fine Tuscan red made from 100% Syrah called Petra and a mighty Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend – Hebo.
