Tenuta di Petrolo

Tuscany, Italy | website

Tucked away in the sleepy Val D’Arno, midway between Florence, Siena and Arezzo, the estate feels far from the tourist hordes but has a history of fine wine production which dates back centuries. In 1716, Cosimo III De Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany officially recognized Val d'Arno di Sopra among the top four areas in Tuscany for fine wine production. This was the first document in the world identifying particular territories for their valuable wine growing areas. It is interesting to note also that French varieties such as Merlot have been planted in this area for centuries. Tenuta di Petrolo represents the best of modern and traditional Tuscany simultaneously, producing wines which combine power, intensity and concentration with elegance, structure and balance, they are always expressive of where they come from, never international in style.

"The 2012 Torrione is seriously beautiful. Dark red cherry, plum, spice and mocha notes flesh out in a supple, radiant wine endowed with gorgeous depth and pure resonance. All the elements meld together in this gracious, juicy Sangiovese-based red from Petrolo. Dollops of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon round out the blend." Antonio Galloni

2013 Petrolo Boggina

$80.00

Private order

"Dark red cherry, plum smoke, tobacco and violet notes are beautifully defined in Petrolo's 2013 Bòggina. Rich and pliant through to the finish, this classy 100% Sangiovese delivers outstanding quality to match its inviting personality. Today, the flavors are naturally quite primary, so a few years of cellaring is warranted. Tasted next to the Bòggina Anfora, the straight Bòggina has more mid-palate intensity and overtness, as well as an expression of fruit that is more closely aligned to the Petrolo house style. But that is really splitting hairs, as both Bògginas are delicious." Antonio Galloni

2013 Petrolo Bogginanfora

$99.00

Private order

"The 2013 Bòggina Anfora is strikingly beautiful. Translucent and weightless in the glass, the 2013 possesses haunting aromatics to match its finely-sculpted fruit. Here the flavors are chiseled and bright, with a bit more lift but less intensity than the straight Bòggina. Shades of mint, cinnamon and wild flowers add an expressive upper register throughout. The Bòggina Anfora is coming along nicely, although my sense is that quite a bit of untapped potential remains with this bottling." Antonio Galloni
