Boggina A (Amphora) 2015 Petrolo
€ 47,80 (in Vat)
Sporting a slight name change, the 2015 Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina A is amphorae-aged Sangiovese. Previously, this wine was named BòginAnfora. The Petrolo winemaking team follows the same procedure in which grapes are sourced from a single vineyard that was planted in 1952. The wine remains in contact with the skins for a long six-month period inside traditional clay vessels. The wine opens to a lean garnet-dark ruby color. The bouquet is fragrant and bright with wild berry and cassis. The mouthfeel is lean and tight. Only 1,778 750-milliliter bottles were made as well as 50 magnums.

JS: A bright and tight pure sangivoese straight from the amphora. Medium to full body, fine and silky tannins and a beautiful finish. So polished and pure.
