Fattoria di Petrolo is a historic Tuscan estate of nearly 700 acres, which includes 76 acres of vineyards and 47 acres of olive trees. Besides wine, the estate also produces olive oil. Fattoria di Petrolo is located in Montevarchi, which is just outside the Chianti Classico zone of Tuscany. Owner Luca Saintjust is part of the family that bought the estate in 1940s, and since the 1980s it has been producing wine. Only in recent decades has the wine begun winning praise from collectors and reviewers, including Robert M. Parker Jr., who has written that “Petrolo is a jewel of an estate, and I can’t recommend the wines highly enough.” The estate produces about 60,000 bottles a year and there are only two main wines, a Sangiovese, Il Torrione, and a Merlot, Galatrona.
