From the winery:
Petrolo extends over 272 hectares between 250 and 400 meters above sea level, in an area known since early '800 for its prestigious wines. The estate properties are set in the Val d'Arno Superiore among the hills of the "Chianti Colli Aretini" an area bordering the south-eastern part of Chianti Classico, on moderately loose-packed soil composed of rocky stratifications of claystone, shale and lime stone.
Winemaking at Petrolo, since the second half of the 80's has been aiming to produce wines with character, connected to our territory thanks to vines of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Faithful to this project the selection of grapes is today increasingly important, convincing our plants to produce low yields and a careful and caring work in the cellar want to sustain and improve nature's result, without ruining it. In the 50's there were 1500 plants per hectare for a production of 3500 hectoliters of wine while today with 5500 plants per hectare, production has been reduced to little less than 700 hectoliters. An accurate selection that wants to add quality and beauty to what is already by nature, extremely precious.
About the wine
Petrolo's "chateau", wine made from the different grapes varietals on the estate. The grapes proportion is the same as the vineyards we have. A perfect example of a balanced, sharp and deep red. A wine that better than others talks of the real identity of our area.

"Aromas of dried flowers, dried berries, cherries and hints of stones. Full-bodied, very firm and silky. An intense underlying energy of acidity and a lovely finish. 75% sangiovese, 20% merlot and 5% cabernet sauvignon. One of the best ever? Drink in 2020."
