Winemakers Note

The estate Petrolo is placed in Val d’ Arno di Sopra on the southeast side of the Chianti mountains bordering Chianti Classico. Petrolo was bought by the Bazzocchi family in the 40s. During the 80s Lucia Bazzocchi Sanjust, realized the great potential of the soil on the hill of Petrolo and with the help of her son Luca, begun renovating the company’s production line aiming to obtain results of the highest quality. From 2016 all Petrolo wines have official EU Organic Certification. Galatrona is the “Grand-Cru ” of Merlot of Petrolo, only made with the grapes from the vineyard of the same name planted between the end of the 80’s and half of the 90’s with low vigor bordeaux clones. The peculiar soil, rich in clay in combination with schist, marl and sandstones, allows the concentration of all the noble components of the grapes, fundamental for the great structure, elegance, balance and persistence wanted for this wine. The vintage After a rather mild winter, the initially warm spring brought abundant rains in May and rather cold temperatures for the period. At the beginning of summer, with the heat wave of the first half of June, the development of the vines was realigned to its usual course. The few storms in July were not of real concern and temperatures below average allowed a balanced growth. The grapes in August where washed by some rains but the hot temperatures allowed a very good ripening. Tasting notes “To the nose, clear hints of blackbarries, plum, chocolate, fresh thyme and touches of licorice root. The mouthfeel is full body, balsamic and very well balanced, with velvety tannins and a sapid and persistent finish with finesse and beauty.” – Luca Sanjust
