Description

Petrolo is located in Bucine, bordering the south eastern hills of Chianti Classico. The winery is run by the family Bazzocchi-Sanjust and now focuses its activities in the production of fine wines, organic extra virgin olive oil IGP and, since the 80s, rents charming holiday villas among the rolling hills of rural Tuscany. The estate is located in the DOC Valdarno di Sopra, an area already known for its fine wines in renaissance and officially recognized in 1716 along with the Chianti, Carmignano and Pomino areas.

Through our vines of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Petrolo aims to produce wines of character, expressing the particularities of its extraordinary territory. The wines are produced with a constant work in the vineyard, a careful selection of grapes, low productivity per plant and a scrupulous work in the cellar, where the hand of man enhances the fruit of nature without ruining it, processing grapes very delicately, with no use of selected yeasts or enzymes.
