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. The maceration on the skins lasts for 14 days. Afterwards, the malolactic fermentation takes place, partly in French barrels of 225 liters and partly in 30 Hl oak barrels. The wine then is aged in French oak barriques, one third new, for approximately 18 months.
Wine SpectatorBeautiful aromas of sweet berries, tea and mineral follow through to a full body, with superrefined tannins and a long, long finish. This is dense yet balanced, with elegance and beauty. A new, tiny production Sangiovese from this producer. Made from old vines. Best after 2011. 20 cases made.
