"Proprietor Luca Sanjust and his team craft some of the most beautiful wines in Tuscany at the equally picturesque Petrolo estate." - Antonio Galloni
The 2015 Tuscans are coming onto the market and one thing is clear: the hype for this generous season is real, and Italian producers are finding a stunning balance between ripeness and structure that will delight enthusiasts of the best Italian wines. Today’s Sangiovese is a pure Tuscan red from the legendary Petrolo estate that's a terrific value delivering world-class quality, rivaling more expensive peers like Flaccianello and Testamatta.
Petrolo’s success with the ‘Galatrona’ Merlot has earned them a reputation for making “some of the most sensual, pleasurable wines in Tuscany” per Galloni, but their Sangiovese is Italy’s best kept secret. When Petrolo’s ‘Boggina’ Sangiovese was released, we knew we had to strike fast, and now we’re able to offer this 95-point gem for the best price around.
‘Boggina’ is the best and oldest plot of the Petrolo estate with hillside vines over 65 years of age. That hillside terroir is even more valuable in warmer vintages, and this Sangiovese has terrific structure to match the bright fruit. Winemaker Carlo Ferrini is one of Italy’s best ‘estate’ consultants and was named a Wine Enthusiast 'Winemaker of the Year.’ He made sure to age the ‘Boggina’ Sangiovese in only large casks (no new oak) to preserve the character of the fruit, while lending it cellar worthy structure.
Petrolo reached new heights with their 2015s, but only 500 cases were produced! Contact us today and secure some for your collection. Cheers!
