Petrolo is one of Tuscany’s paramount wine estates, situated in the heart of the Chianti region. In the 1940s the estate was obtained by the Bazzocchi family, who are categorically devoted to producing wines of the highest quality. Vineyards, olive groves and woodlands exist side by side on Petrolo land, but its vines do not mingle. To obtain the purest expressions, the estate grows their Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in separate vineyards, in the optimal micro-climate for each grape.

The estate’s vineyards have low yields, largely due to the extremely careful selection of fruits - an average of 5500 vines per hectare ultimately produces just 700 hectolitres of wine. Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in the prime Campo Lusso vineyard, under the shadow of Petrolo’s medieval watchtower, Torre di Galatrona.

Campo Lussa Toscana is a beautiful deep crimson, full-bodied and crafted from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Complex aromas of spice and dark berries drift from the glass, with delicate notes of cardamom, earthiness, and a blackcurrant background. Grapes are grown on loosely-packed rocky soil, which is typical of the Chianti region and gives this wine solid acidity. Red and dark berries mingle on the palate, with clear notes of dark chocolate, leather, and exotic spices. Serve at room temperature, paired with gamey meat or mature cheese.
