"From old-vine (and organic) Sangiovese planted in 1952, the Petrolo 2018 Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina C is a gorgeous wine with thick flavors and dark saturation. Some 5,053 bottles and larger-format bottles were produced. This is a beautiful expression—polished, bright and intense. It offers pure fruit flavors of wild cherry, cassis, dried basil, crushed flower and candied orange skin. The wine is silky and mid-weight in texture, but it produces a very long and polished finish. This wine hits all the proverbial Sangiovese high notes." (WA)

"The 2018 Bòggina C (Bòggina Classico) is another superb wine from Petrolo. Here, Sangiovese is aged in oak, which gives the wine more mid-palate depth and broader shoulders, which, frankly, the wine seems to benefit from. Dark cherry, licorice, leather, spice and menthol build as the 2018 shows everything its got. Impressive." (VM)

"The purity of fruit is just right in this red with dried berries, dried leaves, terracotta and dried tobacco. Some smoke, too. It’s full-bodied, yet vivid and focused. No new wood. From organically grow grapes from a single vineyard. A beauty and so drinkable now, but will improve nicely with age. Drink or hold." (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.
