Lovely dark ruby red, a vibrant almost blood red in the glass.
An explosive nose, particularly fresh, vibrant and fruity, loads of dark cherries, chocolate and some floral notes too, I also got some smoke and spices. A complex nose indeed unfolding like a flower.
Full bodied and luscious on the palate, superb balance to the wine and a finish that goes on for a full minute.

Location The area is that of Arezzo hills that encircle the Monti Chianti, historically known and well defined in 1716 by Grand Duke of Tuscany as an area of great value wine and oil. The estate was part of the feud Petrolo medieval "Galatrona"that there is still a tower (tower from which originates the name of the wine) built on the basis of age romana.I Petrolo vineyards stretch for 31 hectares, of which 26 He now in production, at an altitude between 250 and 450 meters above sea level.
Composition of the land Rock layers of marl, sandstone and limestone of the Chianti
System Utmost care and attention to oil is put into the daily work in the vineyard. Knowing that great wines are available only if you have special and favorable soil and climate, and we in Petrolo we are fortunate to have them, only then with a manic and manual labor in the vineyard, which ranges from winter pruning, the binding and then the various stages of cleaning of the screws until the green harvest (in oil in two phases, one after flowering and after 'veraison) you can get the vines to produce not only very limited but also in balance. It is this equilibrium that will bring the plants and harvesting the grapes to ripen fully and then of course you see in the wine in a perfect harmony between fruit and acidity and persistence on the palate.

Production technique The wine is made using glass-lined cement tanks, carrying out fermentation separated by type and origin of the grapes. The skin maceration was extended to the second type of grape used and vintage favoring complete extraction. The replacements are performed with great care and control of fermentation temperature is controlled so that it never exceeds 28-30 degrees centigrade.
Vinification After malolactic fermentation the wine remained in new French oak barrels for a period of 18 months. During this phase, the wine was left for the first six months on the lees, paying particular attention to the changes. This process has allowed us to achieve greater complexity. Following bottling, the wine began in his usual aging period of 6 months.
Aging After completing the malolactic fermentation and now simple to remove substances fecciose decanting, the wine starts the period of aging. The choice of woods is considered of primary importance and is' constantly evolving. The wine in barrels and 'kept under constant observation. We are studying the various types of barrels, depending on the characteristics of the two types of wine produced.
