Torrione Petrolo 2019

Wine of reference of the Petrolo Farm, born in 1988, before its elder brother Galatrona, the Torrione ranks among the reference labels of the IGT Tuscany. In this great family the Torrione stands out for an assembly composed mostly of Sangiovese, with small percentages of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The surface of the vineyard extends for about 20 hectares, subdivided and jagged in the hills of the Val d'Arno. The vines have an average age of 20-30 years. The wine ferments in traditional cement tanks with soft, but frequent manual pumping over and long and delicate maceration on the skins. The refinement takes place in French oak of different sizes, for a period of about 15 months.

Three Senses

Torrione is an expression of Sangiovese first of all. The nose full of red fruit never hints at too much maturation, remembering also notes of flowers. Beautiful impact on the palate with a subtle and present tannin, which balances a vegetal note.

Petrolo Cantina

Petrolo is a historic estate close to the Tuscan Chianti, in the DOC of the Val d'Arno di Sopra, just south-east of the Chianti Mountains. The land is partly affected by the geology of the Arno valley with more typical outcrops of the Chianti area. The company can boast everything it needs, it produces wine, oil and partly honey. Under the organic regime certified since the 1990s, and from 2016 also in the vineyards, it uses natural and sustainable agronomic practices, with targeted interventions reduced to the minimum. The cellar, apart from some recent additions, has remained the same historical, with the use of cement tanks and a splendid barrel room. The vineyards are scattered around the estate and surrounded by the forest, which abounds here and gives balance even in the most complex years to manage. Don't miss the Galatrona tower that dominates the mountains and offers breathtaking views of the estate, and the great hospitality that makes Petrolo an inevitable destination for visits to Tuscany.
