“Savory aromas of balsamic vinegar and mushroom mingle with dark chocolate, black cherry and wild fennel on the nose, with tar and graphite emerging at last before the palate offers more cherries and chocolate against pliable tannins.” D.C 6/23

    Petrolo is the definition of a cult winery, with an owner and a story that have helped create its legendary status. While the estate's benchmark wine, the Merlot cru Galatrona, deservedly receives fireworks in the press and is part of the history of Tuscany’s quality revolution in the late 1980s and 1990s, the winery's two other standouts, Torrione and Boggina, are an equally thrilling success - Sangiovese from a special and virtually unknown appellation bordering Chianti Classico that today produces wines of distinct regional identity.
