Description

Details of wine

A wine very dear to Petrolo, wanted by Lucia Bazzocchi Sanjust in 1988 and made by the hour with the help of Giulio Gambelli, Torrione represents the productive turning point of Petrolo: the goal of making wines in the extreme search for quality.

The company philosophy is based on absolute respect for the natural cycle and for this reason, in 2004, traditional cultivations were abounded in favor of natural practices culminating in 2015 with organic certification.

The Torrione is a photograph of Petrolo, it is the assembly of the grapes of all the Petrolo vineyards: not only the Sangiovese of Bòggina but also of other historic company vineyards in addition to the Merlot of the Galatrona and the Cabernet Sauvignon of the Campo Lusso.

This wine looks at the centuries-old tradition used in Tuscany, to combine French grapes with Sangiovese which do not alter the quality of our wines as the territory prevails over the different varieties.

Wine production in oil has very ancient origins, as evidenced by the house and the basement are part of the ancient medieval fiefdom Galatrona, of which there is still a tower soaring over the hills planted with vines, hence the name of the wine of the same name. The company is located in the Chianti area already demarcated as an area of great value wine from the Grand Duke of Tuscany in 1716 and known as the Val d'Arno di Sopra. Oil was purchased by Bazzocchi family in the '40s, and the second half of the '80s, the current owner, Bazzocchi Sanjust Lucia, and his son Luke have taken a turn Sanjust production based solely on criteria of research of extreme quality.
