This is a niche wine that will capture your heart and mind. The Petrolo 2016 Bòggina B (closed with a wax capsule) is a pure expression of Trebbiano that is aged carefully on the lees to add to its aromatic intensity and complexity. Trebbiano can sometimes produce viscous and waxy wines, but that's not the case here. This is a beautifully pure and sophisticated expression that offers honey, peach, acacia flower, toasted almond and spicy saffron. The aromas are delivered with extreme focus and sharpness, and that's the main takeaway of this vintage. Fresh acidity and racy mineral notes give this white wine the power to cut through an epic spaghetti alle vongole. If you don't already know Bòggina B, I highly recommend you try it.
