Gorgeous aromas of lemon rind, lemon cream, waxy dried apples and hints of cedar and vanilla. Full-bodied, with a round, lightly chewy palate and a long, intense finish.

Full-bodied, with a round, lightly chewy palate and a long, intense finish. Fantastic fruit and complexity. Yet always sublime and subtle. From organically grown grapes. Delicious now, but will be even better in a year or two.

This has excellent acidity but also a weight in the mouth, juicy but viscous with a lift at the end. A great food wine. Made from recently-planted organic Trebbiano grapes using the same clones that were used in original plantings in the 1970s. First produced in 2014 as a tribute to the renowned white wines from Valdarno in the past. Natural vinification with native yeasts in tonneaux, aging on the less for over 15 months in French oak tonneaux with regular batonnage during the first few months. Only one racking before bottling. Around a 5,000 bottle production.

A touch of vanilla and smoked oak notes add gloss to the attack. As it settles in the glass, you get white flowers, honeysuckle, rich citrus and bitter almond.

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.
