Val d'Arno di Sopra DOC – Vigna Galatrona, merlot – Fully produced and bottled at the origin

First vintage harvest

Merlot 100%

20,000 bottles



Since 2004 we have abandoned traditional agriculture in favour of natural and sustainable practices: no irrigation or fertilizer, wholegrain herbid with mulch and abolition of synthetic pesticides. Since the 2016 vintage, Petrolo has also obtained the certification of organic farming in the management of vineyards (Petrolo oil has been organic since the 1990s). To promote the natural balance in the vineyard the management of the green is carried out manually with targeted interventions. Pushed prunings and thinning are almost absent in the more mature plants, already in balance. Extraordinary green management is only necessary today in the most difficult years.


Manual collection in crates and selection of berries on sorting table. Natural winemaking with native yeasts in concrete tanks. Frequent but delicate manual replacements. The maceration of the skins lasts longer than 15 days.


Spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation in wood. Ripening in oak barrels French, for a new third, for about 18 mes. Constant batonnage of fine scum for the first 6 months.


Intense and elegant wine, of great structure and complexity with acidity, fruit and tannins in a pleasant balance. A great wine, beyond the variety of grapes from which it is composed, must be an expression of its territory. In addition to being essentially good, that is in its own way a classic.


The Vineyard

Galatrona is a Merlot cru from the Galatrona vineyard, planted in various stages during the 1990s with low-vigour Bordeaux clones in the town called The Feriale for an extension of about 10 Ha and a total of almost 50,000 plants raised in spurred cordon.

The terrain

Medium dough soil rich in clay with galestro, tree and sandstone. Altitude 300 m above sea level. Southeast exposure. It is located on the southeastern borders of the Chianti Mountains, in the DOC Val d'Arno di Sopra. Clay helps to maintain soil moisture, which merlot needs most during the hot and dry summer months. The combination of clay and stones is among the factors that allow the Galatrona vineyard to produce an elegant and very structured wine even in the vintages considered minor.
