History & Geography

The Downton Abbey of Tuscany for fine, authentic surroundings! Petrolo is placed in Val d’ Arno di Sopra on the south-east side of the Chianti mountains bordering Chianti Classico. Valdarno Superiore DOC area in Tuscany took back the original denomination as one of Tuscany’s four great wine areas established by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Cosimo III De Medici in 1716. Petrolo was part of the old medieval fieldom of “Galatrona”, place of extreme natural beauty and archaeological and historical importance. The Tower of Galatrona raised on top of Roman foundations, stands-out restored from the remains of a medieval castle, dominating the hills. The winery was bought by the Bazzocchi family in the 40s and since the end of the 80s the production has changed to concentrate exclusively on results of the highest quality. The "Villa" was built by the architect and sculptor Massimiliano Soldani Benzi as his own residence between 1700 and 1750.
