The total production of wine at Petroio is derived from vines on the Estate. The grapes are grown on 13 hectares (32.123 acres) of specialized vinyards which are all under the legal category D.O.C.G.* Chianti Classico. Petroio has been a member of the Consorzio del Chianti Classico Marchio Storico since 1927. Six different vineyards may be identified on the Estate, each having been planted at a different time: 1968 Vigna del Viale and Vigna della Fraschetta. 1972 Vigna del Boschetto. 1990 Vigna del Fontone. 1993 Vigna del Poggio al Mandorlo. 1996 Vigna dell’Avvocato. At this time five hectares of new vineyards are being planted and will be called Vignetti dell’Olmicino (2ha) and Vigna della Posta Nuova (3ha).. The planting density per hectare also varies from one vineyard to the next. The yield per hectare is about 1328 gallons of wine (1 hectare = 2.417 acres). In the older vineyards there are about 3000 vines per hectare, in the younger ones the plants are about 6000 per hectare. The best part of any given vintage is selected and aged in oak barrels before being bottled. About one third of the total yearly production is sold in bulk to other estates in the Chianti classico region. Again this percentage depends, of course, on the amount of wine produced in a given harvest. The quantity of wine set aside for Riserva varies from a minimum of 20 quintals (528 gallons) to a maximum of 80 quintals (1328 gallons). For an example, from the vintage 1997 10,000 bottles of Riserva were produced. *D.O.C.G. means Denomination of Origina Controlled and Guaranteed by the state of Italy and is applied only to the highest quality wines produced in Italy.
