    Petrolo

    About Petrolo

    One of Tuscany’s leading estates, Petrolo will be a familiar name to oenophiles across the globe. Located just one mile east of the Chianti Classico region, it shares much of the same terroir in its soil typography with a touch more elevation at 450 metres above sea level. Rocky, cool and bathed in Tuscan sunshine, this property is perhaps most famous for its Galatrona cuvée, one of Italy’s finest Merlots.

    Petrolo was founded by the grandfather of current winemaker Luca Sanjust in 1947. At Petrolo, they are down-to-earth and obsessed with quality, caring much more for the wine in the bottle than for building flash wineries or participating in gimmicky marketing exercises. The wine is dense and opulent as would be expected from a top-quality Merlot, but with beautiful freshness and finesse – this is a wine that has been made with love. 

    Viniculture

    Galatrona is the estate’s flagship cuvée, the undisputed king of these hills, sourced from a small vineyard of the same name. Planted in the 1980s with low-yielding Bordeaux clone Merlot vines, the vineyard’s soil is an archetypal composition of deeply rich clay with veins of schist, marl and sandstone imbuing stunning minerality to the effortlessly generous and elegant fruit. Inspired by the great producers of Pomerol, Galatrona is crowned as a worthy rival to the likes of Pétrus, Le Pin and Masseto.

    There are numerous strings to the mighty bow that is Petrolo, not least of which is their single-vineyard range of Bòggina A, Bòggina B and Bòggina C.

    Bòggina A and Bòggina C are both pure Sangiovese expressions hailed from different plots and terroirs. Bòggina B is a pure expression of the ancient Italian Trebbiano varietal, a grape with which collectors should become increasingly familiar due to its sensational complexity at the hands of producers such as Petrolo.

    James Suckling (98)

    Lots of lemon curd and wax with mustard-flower undertones. Turns to Brazilian lime. Hints of fresh bay leaf, too. Full-bodied, tangy and beautiful. Really long and delicious. Peanuts and white sesame seeds. Superb. Unique and very Tuscan. From organically grown grapes.

    Vinous (96)

    The 2018 Bòggina C (Bòggina Classico) is another superb wine from Petrolo. Here, Sangiovese is aged in oak, which gives the wine more mid-palate depth and broader shoulders, which, frankly, the wine seems to benefit from. Dark cherry, licorice, leather, spice and menthol build as the 2018 shows everything its got. Impressive.

    Petrolo Boggina Toscana 2011 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (94)

    The 2011 Boggina sees fruit sourced from the same single-vineyard, only this expression sees 12 days of maceration and 14 moths of barrel aging (both tonneaux and botte). This is a radically different wine that shows precision and dark focus. The BogginAnfora feels fuzzy and foggy in comparison with a broader aromatic presentation, although both wines offer considerable charm. Here, the aromas are delivered straight to your senses with power and determination. The mouthfeel is richly layered with sweet cherry and spice. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

    Petrolo Boggina Toscana 2012 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2012 Boggina (Sangiovese) is one of the more restrained, finessed wines I have tasted at Petrolo. Weightless and gracious in the glass, the 2012 is built on a core of super-expressive, floral and red-toned fruit. With air, the Boggina fleshes out and takes on slightly darker shades of expression. Hints of tobacco and mint add nuance on the finish in a highly appealing, fruit-driven Sangiovese to drink now and over the next decade-plus.

    Petrolo Boggina Toscana 2013 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    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.

    Petrolo Galatrona 2003 (1x300cl)

    Vinous (91)

    The 2003 Galatrona opens with a huge super-ripe nose. It is a big, plump effort packed with ripe red fruit, chocolate, tar, leather and scorched earth notes on an expansive, sumptuous frame. Today it does not appear to be built for the long haul and my impression is that it will offer its best drinking relatively early.

    Wine Advocate (93)

    The 2010 Galatrona seems to be going through a closed phase at the moment, or perhaps the bottle we opened was not exemplary. The wine boasts an inky dark appearance with sweet aromas of red rose and sweet cherry. You need to swirl your glass with great vigor to dig down deeper. As you do, it slowly releases tones of toasted nut, exotic spice and dark leather. Overall, the bouquet offers less intensity (especially compared to the exuberant, hot vintages 2011 and 2012 tasted prior to this wine in our vertical tasting). The wine ends with integrated fruit flavors and a pretty point of fresh acidity.

    This is the flagship wine from Luca Sanjust's Petrolo estate located not too far from Arezzo in the Valdarno area of eastern Tuscany. The 2016 Galatrona is indeed a masterpiece to behold. This wine offers thick layering and deep intensity with aromas that offer an incredible range, starting off with luscious dark chocolate on one side and ending with fragrant white truffle on the far end of its long aromatic trajectory. You get plummy fruit, spice, sweet tobacco and tilled earth packed tight in between. This full-bodied Merlot is softly textured and succulent with long-lasting flavor intensity on the close. Petrolo's Merlot is planted in a ten-hectare parcel distinguished by thick clay soils. I have been watching Galatrona's evolution for years and have tasted the wine on occasion in various vertical tastings. This is my favorite vintage made thus far.

    The Petrolo 2020 Galatrona is a pure expression of organic Merlot and the estate's headline wine. It was first created in 1994 when Luca Sanjust's second child, Lucia, was born. Despite the summer heat that became a challenge for winemakers in many corners of Tuscany, Galatrona shows terrific results in 2020. The vineyard is located in a cool and thickly forested position almost exactly between Florence, Arezzo and Siena. The vintage has a classic quality with a subtle bouquet that grows in intensity as the wine opens in the glass. Aromas of cherry, toasted almond and dried mint fuel a long and very elegant finish. The oak tannins are soft and sweet, and the wine boasts long-lasting flavors.

    The 2015 Torrione is gorgeous. Bright fruit and expressive floral notes give the Torrione striking energy. Hints of smoke, tobacco and game add further shades of complexity as the wine gains volume and nuance with air. Above all else, though, what stands out is an emphasis on energy that is quite a departure from the Petrolo style of years past. The 2015 is a winner. Don’t miss it.

    Petrolo Boggina C 2018 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (96)

    The 2018 Bòggina C (Bòggina Classico) is another superb wine from Petrolo. Here, Sangiovese is aged in oak, which gives the wine more mid-palate depth and broader shoulders, which, frankly, the wine seems to benefit from. Dark cherry, licorice, leather, spice and menthol build as the 2018 shows everything its got. Impressive.

    This is so perfumed and beautiful, with brightness and aromatic complexity. Medium-bodied with ultra-fine tannins and a long, persistent finish. Tangy and vivid. Orange-peel undertones. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.

    Petrolo Boggina Toscana 2011 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (94)

    The 2011 Boggina sees fruit sourced from the same single-vineyard, only this expression sees 12 days of maceration and 14 moths of barrel aging (both tonneaux and botte). This is a radically different wine that shows precision and dark focus. The BogginAnfora feels fuzzy and foggy in comparison with a broader aromatic presentation, although both wines offer considerable charm. Here, the aromas are delivered straight to your senses with power and determination. The mouthfeel is richly layered with sweet cherry and spice. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028.

    Petrolo Boggina Toscana 2012 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    The 2012 Boggina (Sangiovese) is one of the more restrained, finessed wines I have tasted at Petrolo. Weightless and gracious in the glass, the 2012 is built on a core of super-expressive, floral and red-toned fruit. With air, the Boggina fleshes out and takes on slightly darker shades of expression. Hints of tobacco and mint add nuance on the finish in a highly appealing, fruit-driven Sangiovese to drink now and over the next decade-plus.

    Petrolo Boggina Toscana 2013 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93)

    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.

    Petrolo Galatrona 2003 (1x300cl)

    Vinous (91)

    The 2003 Galatrona opens with a huge super-ripe nose. It is a big, plump effort packed with ripe red fruit, chocolate, tar, leather and scorched earth notes on an expansive, sumptuous frame. Today it does not appear to be built for the long haul and my impression is that it will offer its best drinking relatively early.

    Petrolo Galatrona 2010 (1x150cl)

    Wine Advocate (93)

    The 2010 Galatrona seems to be going through a closed phase at the moment, or perhaps the bottle we opened was not exemplary. The wine boasts an inky dark appearance with sweet aromas of red rose and sweet cherry. You need to swirl your glass with great vigor to dig down deeper. As you do, it slowly releases tones of toasted nut, exotic spice and dark leather. Overall, the bouquet offers less intensity (especially compared to the exuberant, hot vintages 2011 and 2012 tasted prior to this wine in our vertical tasting). The wine ends with integrated fruit flavors and a pretty point of fresh acidity.

    This is the flagship wine from Luca Sanjust's Petrolo estate located not too far from Arezzo in the Valdarno area of eastern Tuscany. The 2016 Galatrona is indeed a masterpiece to behold. This wine offers thick layering and deep intensity with aromas that offer an incredible range, starting off with luscious dark chocolate on one side and ending with fragrant white truffle on the far end of its long aromatic trajectory. You get plummy fruit, spice, sweet tobacco and tilled earth packed tight in between. This full-bodied Merlot is softly textured and succulent with long-lasting flavor intensity on the close. Petrolo's Merlot is planted in a ten-hectare parcel distinguished by thick clay soils. I have been watching Galatrona's evolution for years and have tasted the wine on occasion in various vertical tastings. This is my favorite vintage made thus far.

Dense, full-bodied and very chewy, this remains incredulously fine and elegant. Robust and enveloping tannins coat the mouth and mold the wild fruit into a sleek, pliable package. Finally, a string of refreshing acidity lifts the finish long and complex. Drink now, but better after 2026.

    The Petrolo 2020 Galatrona is a pure expression of organic Merlot and the estate's headline wine. It was first created in 1994 when Luca Sanjust's second child, Lucia, was born. Despite the summer heat that became a challenge for winemakers in many corners of Tuscany, Galatrona shows terrific results in 2020. The vineyard is located in a cool and thickly forested position almost exactly between Florence, Arezzo and Siena. The vintage has a classic quality with a subtle bouquet that grows in intensity as the wine opens in the glass. Aromas of cherry, toasted almond and dried mint fuel a long and very elegant finish. The oak tannins are soft and sweet, and the wine boasts long-lasting flavors.

Hints of smoke, tobacco and game add further shades of complexity as the wine gains volume and nuance with air.
