Tannic and structured. A fantastic sangiovese. Aged in cask. No new wood. Give it two to three years to soften.

A bright, cherry-flavored red, with accents of leafy tobacco and earth adding counterpoint. Firm and pleasantly astringent, echoing cherry, earth and tobacco notes. Shows fine intensity and freshness. Aged in large cask... A bright, cherry-flavored red, with accents of leafy tobacco and earth adding counterpoint.

The 2015 Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina C sees fruit sourced from a single vineyard site with 65-year-old Sangiovese vines. The wine offers a light and streamlined expression of the grape that underlines its natural fruit qualities and acidic freshness. The wine is lean and stripped down with wild berry, raspberry, white almond and grilled herb. The mouthfeel is prime, pristine and absolutely silky. - Monica Larner

Winery

Petrolo

Petrolo winery is owned by 4 generations by the Bazzocchi-Sanjust family. The estate extends over 109 acres, 825 to 1,500 feet above sea level, in an area known for prestigious wines since the Renaissance.

The vineyards are set in Val d'Arno Superiore, among the hills of the "Chianti Colli Aretini," bordering southeastern Chianti Classico. The somewhat loosely packed soil features layers of claystone, shale and limestone.

Petrolo aims to produce wines with character and terroir from Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, with 5,500 plants per hectare, production has been reduced to less than 8,000 cases in order to maximize quality. Hand-harvested and fermented in individual lots using native yeasts, the bulk of production is aged in French barriques, though they do employ the use of large oak casks.

Petrolo produces six dry wines and a Vin Santo, but is best known for the 100% Merlot, Galatrona, and the Cabernet-based Il Torrione.
