- On sale!
Valdarno di Sopra 'Bòggina A' by Petrolo is a pure Sangiovese that looks to the past: since the 2011 vintage Petrolo has been experimenting with the vinification of a batch of Sangiovese di Bòggina in 300-liter terracotta amphorae, with a maceration of the skins at air, or through a simple fulling of the hat, which lasts for no more than 2 weeks, after which the amphora is hermetically sealed with the skins still inside. The choice of the amphora has a historical dimension of rapprochement with Tuscan cultural origins. A juicy and pleasant red, which once again confirms Petrolo's great abilities.
Petrolo winery is located in the province of Arezzo, in the municipality of Mercatale Valdarno, among the green Tuscan hills. The estate was part, in the Middle Ages, of the Galatrona fiefdom, as evidenced by the ancient tower, from which the Petrolo wines take their name, and the parish church that contains a baptismal font by Giovanni della Robbia. Belonging to the Bazzocchi-Sanjust family for four generations, the Petrolo estate covers over 270 hectares, of which about thirty are currently planted with vines, while twenty are dedicated to the cultivation of olive trees. Since the second half of the 1980s, the objective of the Petrolo winery has been that of the absolute quality of the wines produced, starting from the understanding and interpretation of the enormous potential of the territory. Today the rows are conducted according to the rules of organic farming. A complete and harmonious range of labels, expressive and particularly faithful to the terroir of origin, as well as constantly striving towards the highest quality levels. Simply extraordinary wines.
