Professional Wine Reviews for Fattoria Petrolo Boggina-B Bianco 2016

Rated 97 by James Suckling
This remains one of the coolest whites in Tuscany with a mineral, apple, and light flint aroma and flavor profile. Full-bodied, tight and focused with a beautiful finish of bright acidity and a stone, creamy texture. Made with Lucien Le Moine from Burgundy. Drink now.
Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
This wine is a passion project for vintner Luca Sanjust. The 2016 Bòggina B is a pure expressions of Trebbiano Toscano that opens to creamy, almost nutty intensity and deep aromas of honey, dried apricot, baked bread and toasted pine nut. With inspiration from Burgundy, the wine is aged sur lies for 20 months in French barrique and tonneaux. Trebbiano is not an openly fragrant grape, but this organic and biodynamic expression shows remarkable intensity, especially in terms of mouthfeel and texture. This clone of Trebbiano traces its roots back to the 1200s, making its recorded history older than that of Sangiovese. The wine opens to a bright, golden color with honey-like richness and softness. The stone element is strong in the soils, and you taste some dusty minerality as a result. For now, only 1,000 bottles are made, but the goal is to increase production to 10,000 because another 1.5 hectares of vines were recently planted. The wine will also soon become part of the Val d'Arno appellation. This hearty white wine should hold steady for ten years or more.

Winery Fattoria Petrolo

Region: Tuscany

Tuscany is probably Italy's most important and widely respected wine region, with a history which stretches back almost three thousand years, and a set of fine grape varietals which produce some of the most delicious quality white and red wines in the world. Sangiovese and Vernaccia varietal grapes are grown all over this expansive region, and the way they are handled, aged and processed varies from town to town. The beautiful hot climate of Tuscany helps these grapes reach full ripeness, despite the fact the soil of the region is generally problematic for the vintners who work there. Despite this, there is a dedication to quality and flavor in Tuscany which is more or less unmatched anywhere else in Italy, and a great mix of strong tradition and willingness to experiment and think outside the box which has been a wonderful recipe for success in the region.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
