Bòggina A

The choice of the amphora has a historical dimension to get closer to Tuscany's cultural roots. Terracotta in Tuscany always played a key role: since the early Etruscan craftsmanship the art of creating and using vases of terracotta has evolved and refined over centuries in the village of Impruneta. Wine itself was vinified and stored in terracotta since its origin. Everlasting wine vases are made in terracotta.

Sanpetrolo

From 2001 Petrolo’s Vinsanto del Chianti, produced since the 50’s, is named SANPETROLO. This decision was taken because of the limited and incomprehensible views of the Vinsanto del Chianti disciplinary.
Sanpetrolo has very peculiar and for us outstanding features (as a 9 years long aging in small oak barrels), that don’t agree with the very confining analytical values of the Vinsanto del Chianti denomination. This wine is not filtered, is not very alcoholic (well under the regulamented 15.5% vol) and is very high in sugar content (above 300 g/l). Since 2001 vintage Petrolo Vinsanto del Chianti DOC has been Sanpetrolo, IGT Toscana passito.

About us

Company details

The Petrolo Estate is run by the Bazzocchi-Sanjust family arrived at its 4th generation and focuses its activity in the production of Fine Wines, Organic extra virgin Olive Oil Tuscany IGPand since the 80's Petrolo rents its villas for lovely holidays and farmstays set in the unique Tuscan rural countryside.

Petrolo extends over 272 hectares between 250 and 400 meters above sea level, in an area known since early '800 for its prestigious wines. The estate properties are set in the Val d'Arno Superiore among the hills of the "Chianti Colli Aretini" an area bordering the south-eastern part of Chianti Classico, on moderately loose-packed soil composed of rocky stratifications of claystone, shale and lime stone.

Winemaking at Petrolo, since the second half of the 80's has been aiming to produce wines with character, connected to our territory thanks to vines of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Faithful to this project the selection of grapes is today increasingly important, convincing our plants to produce low yields and a careful and caring work in the cellar want to sustain and improve nature's result, without ruining it. In the 50's there were 1500 plants per hectare for a production of 3500 hectoliters of wine while today with 5500 plants per hectare, production has been reduced to little less than 700 hectoliters. An accurate selection that wants to add quality and beauty to what is already by nature, extremely precious.

This is the idea at the heart of Petrolo's wines, each one of high level, each one tended towards the greatest quality. Petrolo doesn't make basic wines, only great wines. The winery has been improving in recent years following this idea, only aiming towards labels that could guarantee high quality and  that could represent a coherent identity of the Estate. Making great wines is a complex challenge, a coincidence of circumstances are needed: special pedoclimatic conditions, awareness and delicate work in the vineyard and in the cellar and finally, a good dose of luck.

To make a great wine you need to tend the plants with care, every single one, repeatedly throughout the year. This is the mission that we at Petrolo are fulfilling every day.
