Estate Notes

Petrolo's Galatrona 2006 was purchased in its original wooden case.

The Galtrona is the flagship wine of one of Tuscany's most talked about estates, which is situated in the the Chianti Colli Aretini region, on the eastern flank of the Chianti hills. The Petrolo estate was part of the old medieval fiefdom of 'Galatrona', and is now run by Luca Sanjust who prides himself on the vibrancy and intensity of the fruit. Since 2004, Petrolo has been abandoning traditional farming methods in favour of sustainable practices, including a ban on synthetic pesticides and fertilizers.

"Proprietor Luca Sanjust and his team craft some of the most beautiful wines in Tuscany at the equally picturesque Petrolo estate." Antonio Galloni


"Luxuriant aromas of rose and violet, black-cherry, red fruits and kirsch, with complex savoury spice showing truffle and cigar leaf, supported by a fresh, mineral base. Concentrated ripe palate, freshly balanced and focused on the front, sumptuous fruit centre with velvety aromatic tannins, very deep and mineral beneath; long creamy and lightly macerated development with torrefied spice and kirsch. Delightfully fresh and mineral on the finish with floral lift, very long."Antonio Galloni

"Big and fleshy, with loads of blackberry, dark chocolate, olive and vanilla character. Full and chewy, with beautiful ripe fruit and quality tannins. This is juicy. Layered, dense and beautiful." Wine Spectator
