Campo Lusso is the “Gran-Cru” of Cabernet Sauvignon by Petrolo comes from the vineyard of the same name planted on September 11, 2001. The name derives from an old expression of local farmers who call the field with this vineyard the most beautiful of the estate, a real luxury (Campo Lusso, luxury field). This vineyard, surrounded by forest, is located on a natural terrace, just below the medieval watchtower of Galatrona and enjoys particularly good weather and soil conditions.

Since 2004, we have abandoned traditional farming methods and applied natural and sustainable solutions: dry farming and no fertilization, no tillage, full grazing with mulch management, no use of synthetic pesticides. In 2016, the winery obtained official organic certification. To achieve a natural balance in the vineyard, plant management is carried out manually with targeted intervention. Heavier pruning and grape thinning is almost absent in the mature vineyards that are already balanced. Today extraordinary growth management is only needed in the more challenging years.
The grapes are harvested manually in crates and further grape selection on the sorting table. Natural vinification with indigenous yeasts in cement vats. Manual gentle and frequent pumping over. Prolonged maceration of the skin. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in wood. Maturation for about 20/22 months in carefully selected new French oak barriques. Constant batonnage of the fine yeast during the first 6 months.
This IGT Tuscan wine, the Petrolo 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Campo Lusso is a great release from the very talented team on one of Tuscany's most important estates. This expression of Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a rich, velvety texture with immediate aromas of blackberries, crème de cassis and sweet baking spices with lightly perfumed notes of flowers and a hint of incense over exotic spices and aged leather. This is a balanced and elegant expression from Tuscany that is never too heavy or heavy. 95/100 Parker, 96/100 Suckling and 95/100 Vinous
