Petra Alba is very expressive and charming (crushed fruit, mulberry). It has powerful ripe fruit aromas, the sweetness of the wine is in perfect balance with the tension brought by the limestone soil. It is a structured and tailored wine for gastronomy, which was recently voted favorite of the Loire by the Revue des Vins de France, with the following commentary: “This wine, untied with sweet flavors, displays excellent intensity and freshness , right up to the salivating finish.
