91WA "A dark, brooding wine loaded with camphor, tar, licorice, smoke and black cherries. In 2010 the Ebo comes across as especially masculine and brooding in its personality. Layers of fruit power through to an intense finish laced with hints of espresso, mocha and new leather. Aged in one- and two-year-old French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024." - Wine Advocate Antonio Galloni, 91 point!
"Bright ruby red in colour, with abundant perfumes of cherry, blueberry, and a hint of oak and eucalyptus with balsamic notes. Concentrated flavours of blackberry and dried fruits, this wine is smooth and supple with pleasant acidity and a lengthy finish." - Winery
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Sangiovese and 20% Merlot.

When Vittorio Moretti, together with his daughter Francesca, set out in search of a property in the Maremma in 1997, they asked Attilio Scienza, Italy’s most celebrated viticultural professor and consultant, to help them find the best spot. Scienza came up with Petra (the name is derived from the Latin for stone, or ‘pietra’ in Italian’), which is southeast of Bolgheri and inland from the sea. The estate now has 97 hectares of vineyard, which surround a splendid modernist winery built by the Swiss architect, Mario Botta.
The name Ebo was the name of an ancient Etruscan settlement in Suvereto. The wine is produced from a blend of grapes, the Sangiovese retaining its’ typical character, reflecting the rich soil in which it is grown in the Val di Cornia.
