Red Wine


Price :

"This vibrant, balanced red is rich, with plum, cherry, iron and tobacco notes. Firms up nicely, suggesting a decade or more of development ahead, ending with a tangy aftertaste of fruit and mineral. Sangiovese. Best from 2021 through 2033. -B.S" (WS)

"This is so focused and precise with fantastic depth and beauty. A pure definition of sangiovese. Full-bodied, tight and refined. Yet, full of strength and length. Succulent, too. A single-vineyard wine with soul. Better in 2022." (JS)

Winery Notes:
When I think of Bòggina C ( Classic) it comes to my mind a small painting of Paul Klee and its description by Walter Benjamin in his masterpiece-book “Angelus Novus”...

...“There is a painting by Klee ... It shows an angel who seems about to move away from something he stares at... His face is turned toward the past... But a storm is blowing from Paradise ... This storm drives him irresistibly into the future to which his back is turned...”

Here's Bòggina C, a wine turned towards the past (the secular Tuscan tradition in its most beautiful areas vocated to our Sangiovese...) but at the same time a wine pushed inexorably towards the future... (because of the painstaking care we now put, unlike the past, in the slightest details of all processes, in the cellar and in the vineyards.
