James Suckling (JS) : 98 Points (2016)
The aromas of dried flowers, stones, dark tea leaves, hot tile, and dark berries. Full-bodied, yet tight and linear. Wonderful drive and depth. An extremely long and focused finish. A great wine. Needs four or five years to come together. Try in 2022.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 96 Points (2016)
Galatrona leads an impressive set of wines from Luca Sanjust in the moderate 2016 growing season. Pure merlot from a 25-acre plot of vines planted in the 1990s, it unfolds with beautiful scents of dewy violets and thyme. The flavors are as precise as the aromas, with fresh acidity highlighting the ripe blue and black fruit tones. The wine aged for 18 months in French oak barriques, about one-third new, developing supple tannins and subtle spice notes. Taut and herb inflected, it’s a merlot for people who think they don’t like merlot.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 95 Points (2016)
This is full of enticing blackberry, blueberry and plum flavors, with a spine of acidity, iron accents and beefy tannins. Long and well-proportioned, this needs time to integrate. Tobacco and spice hints detail the finish. Best from 2022 through 2033.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 94 Points (2016)
The 2016 Galatrona (Merlot) is fabulous. Powerful, dense and layered, the 2016 brings together serious fruit intensity and energy, as is so typical of this important Tuscan vintage. A whole range of floral and spice notes develop in the glass, adding further shades of nuance. I have long felt Galatrona is released too early. The 2016 is a perfect example of that. Opening a bottle now is a crime. (AG) (2/2019)

Robert Parker (RP) : 96 Points (2015)
Galatrona is one of the best Merlots made in Italy (definitely in the top five) and this vintage keeps the banner flying high. The 2015 Galatrona is luscious, soft, soothing and ever-so intense. The wine wraps thickly over the senses and the palate with lasting flavors of dark fruit and spice. Specifically, you get black cherry, pressed blackberry, toasted spice and bitter chocolate or fragrant espresso. The wine shows depth and length, width and soaring heights. It's young now, so put the bottle at the back of your cellar.

Jancis Robinson (JR) : 16 Points (2015)
Very deep crimson. Velvety look. Rather green palate entry. A bit of a hole in the middle. The world needs this so much less than the amphora Sangiovese from the same address. 16/20 points. (JR) (6/2017)
