Overview

Boggina is made from a meticulous selection of the best grapes of the namesake vineyard. Boggina is bottled from the single best barrel of Sangiovese produced each year from the Boggina hill, planted in the 1950’s by Luca’s grandfather. The yield per plant is notably restricted (max 2.5 lbs per vine plant), allowing a concentration of all the noble components of the grape, fundamental for the full-bodied character of this wine. This rare wine comes from a very small prized vineyard on th estate of Petrolo, a celebration and homage to the very genesis of Petrolo.
