It is certainly the most famous wine of the estate, a wine that for over ten years has confirmed many awards all over the world. Important and robust Supertuscan red, aged for 15 months in barrique.

THE FARM

Petrolo winery is located in the province of Arezzo, in the municipality of Mercatale Valdarno, among the green Tuscan hills. The estate was part, in the Middle Ages, of the Galatrona fiefdom, as evidenced by the ancient tower, from which the Petrolo wines take their name, and the parish church that contains a baptismal font by Giovanni della Robbia. Belonging to the Bazzocchi-Sanjust family for four generations, the Petrolo estate covers over 270 hectares, of which about thirty are currently planted with vines, while twenty are dedicated to the cultivation of olive trees. Since the second half of the 1980s, the objective of the Petrolo winery has been that of the absolute quality of the wines produced, starting from the understanding and interpretation of the enormous potential of the territory. Today the rows are conducted according to the rules of organic farming. A complete and harmonious range of labels, expressive and particularly faithful to the terroir of origin, as well as constantly striving towards the highest quality levels. Simply extraordinary wines.
