Production

INARNO is the tribute of Petrolo to the newly born or better still re-born DOC VAL D’ARNO DI SOPRA.

In 1716 an edict of the Greatduke of Tuscany Cosimo III De Medici officially recognized 4 areas in Tuscany for their fine wine production: CHIANTI – CARMIGNANO – POMINO – VAL D’ARNO DI SOPRA.
This edict is the first document in the world identifying in a territory its valuable wine growing areas.

Essentially INARNO is a wine that talks of the beauty the generosity and the goodness of Sangiovese grapes cultivated in our land. It’s a craft wine mirroring the traditional work of many little producers of our area and will have in its restrained price one of its strong points. Essentially INARNO is a wine at the price of an “industrial” product though produced instead like an authentic hand-crafted wine.

VINIFICATION: Grapes are handpicked and brought to the cellar in fruit crates to avoid grape damage before careful selection on the sorting table. Only cement vats are used. Grapes are pushed in cement tanks for vinification and maceration which lasts around 2 weeks. The pumping overs are done with considerable care to allow the complete extraction of anthocyanins and polyphenols from the skins.
AGING: Malolactic fermentation and further aging continues in enamelled cement tanks. INARNO goes in bottle just before the summer following harvest, like a fresh Chianti of the year to bring out freshness and drinkability.

Vineyards

From 2015 Inarno is only made from the Sangiovese grapes of Petrolo from the historical vines of the 70’s and from more recent vineyards.
