Bòggina B (Bianco) is produced from Tuscan Trebbiano grapes, selected in Valdarno and planted in the 1970s at Petrolo in the "Poggio" vineyard and recently replanted under the "Bòggina" vineyard with the same original clones.
Due to the exceptional conditions one has at Petrolo one is able to produce a pure white Trebbiano wine of (very) high quality, as was known here since humanism. Documents from the year 300 AD confirm how tasteful a Trebbiano came from a plot of Petrolo called "Spedale". This parcel, then owned by the Papal State, was known to be an expensive but exquisite wine sent exclusively to Rome.
Bòggina B was also born from a meeting with Lucien Le Moine (Mounir Souma), a great producer in Burgundy, who inspired Petrola, guided and shared valuable advice during the different stages of production, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, under the careful guidance from consultant enologist Carlo Ferrini, assisted by our in-house enologist Simone Cuccoli.
The vinification of Bòggina B is carried out in French oak barrels specially made for Petrolo and selected tonneaux from Lucien Le Moine. The wine remains "sur lies" throughout the maturation period of more than 2 years.
The first production year of Bòggina B was 2014. Production: about 7,000 bottles.
This is a niche wine that will capture your heart and mind. The Petrolo 2020 Bòggina B (closed with a wax capsule) is a pure expression of Trebbiano carefully aged on the lees to increase its aromatic intensity and complexity. This is a beautifully pure and refined expression that offers honey, peach, acacia flower, toasted almond and spicy saffron. The aromas are delivered with extreme focus and sharpness. Fresh acidity and spicy mineral notes give this white wine the power to cut through an epic spaghetti alle vongole. If you don't know Bòggina B yet, we highly recommend that you try it.
