95 JS / 92 WS / 90 WA

A dense and beautiful young sangiovese with dried cherry, orange rind and flowers. Full body, tight and silky with a long and seamless finish. Tannic and structured. A fantastic sangiovese. Aged in cask. No new wood. Give it two to three years to soften. - James Suckling

A bright, cherry-flavored red, with accents of leafy tobacco and earth adding counterpoint. Firm and pleasantly astringent, echoing cherry, earth and tobacco notes. Shows fine intensity and freshness. Aged in large cask. Sangiovese. Best from 2019 through 2028. 25 cases imported. - Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator

The 2015 Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina C sees fruit sourced from a single vineyard site with 65-year-old Sangiovese vines. The wine offers a light and streamlined expression of the grape that underlines its natural fruit qualities and acidic freshness. The wine is lean and stripped down with wild berry, raspberry, white almond and grilled herb. The mouthfeel is prime, pristine and absolutely silky. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

One of the most fascinating methods that Petrolo is currently using in its winemaking for its Bogginanfora is the use of large terracotta amphora containers for aging its wines, while the “classic” Boggina is aged in oak. Amphora seemingly results in a softer, almost Burgundian styled Sangiovese. Ron van Vlaardingen, GVWM Sales Director
