    Hebo was the name of an ancient Etruscan settlement in Suvereto, in the Maremma region  on the beautiful southern coast of Tuscany.  Here the Moretti family use organic farming and sustainable production practices to produce Petra wines.

    Hebo is a great example of a Super Tuscan red wine.  Back in the 1960s, some Tuscan producers began experimenting with non-indigenous varieties from Bordeaux, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot and using blends not allowed under Tuscan appellation law.  These were bottled as lowly Vino da Tavola wines but punched well above their status and so they collectively became known as Super Tuscans. The term became synonymous with adventurous winemaking, with producers experimenting with French barriques and new viticultural methods.

    Petra “Hebo Toscana IGT” is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and a little Sangiovese to retain the regional character, reflecting the rich soil in which it is grown in Maremma.  It is bright ruby red in colour. On the nose, there are fresh aromas of black cherry, violet and blueberries which are complemented by hints of vanilla and exotic spice. On the palate, it is fresh and savoury.  It is a pleasure to drink.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
