Sku: 1845937

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

If one were to draw a triangle linking Florence, Siena and Arezzo, Petrolo would be at the center. This 672 estate is located in Mercatale Valdarno in the Colli Aretini region, an area renowned for its olive oils and wines. Bought by the Bazzocchi family in the 1940s, Petrolo is managed by Lucia Bazzocchi Sanjust and her son Luca. The relatively high altitude of the vineyards, the galestro soils and the lakes on the property come together to create an ideal growing conditions. Currently, 76 acres are planted to Merlot and Sangiovese. Oenologist Stefano Guidi is assisted by Carlo Ferrini and technical agronomist Carlo Nesterini.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Aug 2013)
The 2010 Torrione is exception and a very reasonable value. It opens with elegant richness and soft tones of black cherry, licorice, spice and dark leather. The style is opulent and confident for this mostly Sangiovese-based wine. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
