    "Bòggina C" Sangiovese Val d'Arno di Sopra DOC 2016 (BIO)

    The C in the name of the Boggina stands for the "Classico", aged for about 18 months in large wood and tonneau: In the bouquet the whole fullness of Sangiovese - sour cherry, plum, various floral notes and spices. The filigree tannins give elegance on the palate, yet it is the archetype of a taut and wonderfully precise Sangiovese with impressive depth. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Savoury iodine cherry fruit on the nose with touches of spicy and savoury rather than sweet oak. Hints of Moroccan leather and minerally notes. Sappy red-fruit palate with a cool edge and just medium-bodied feel. Gritty tannins adding depth." Jancis Robinson

    "This vibrant, balanced red is rich, with plum, cherry, iron and tobacco notes. Firms up nicely, suggesting a decade or more of development ahead, ending with a tangy aftertaste of fruit and mineral." Wine Spectator

    "The 2016 Bòggina C, 100% Sangiovese vinified in cement and aged in oak, is a total knock-out. Readers will find a wine endowed with fabulous richness and depth. Black cherry, plum, lavender, spice and espresso all flesh out in a generous, deeply expressive wine that is ample and nuanced at the same time." VINOUS

    "The 2016 Val d'Arno di Sopra Bòggina C is a pure expression of Sangiovese from vines planted in 1952. Give the wine a little time to open in the glass; once it does, it offers a beautiful display of forest fruit, spice, leather and earthy tones. Unlike the Bòggina A that is aged in amphorae, the Bòggina C is fermented in concrete vats using ambient yeasts. It sees extended maceration times and is aged in French 40-hectoliter casks and tonneaux. Some 11,000 bottles were made. This single-vineyard expression of Sangiovese reveals impeccable balance and elegance." Robert Parker

    "This is so focused and precise with fantastic depth and beauty. A pure definition of sangiovese. Full-bodied, tight and refined. Yet, full of strength and length. Succulent, too. A single-vineyard wine with soul." James Suckling
