2017 Il Borro Sangiovese Petruna in Anfora, Tuscany, Italy

Wine has a deep ruby-red colour. It has an intense, complex bouquet with notes of ripe red fruits and distinctive aromas deriving from the aging in terracotta amphora. It has a full-bodied flavour and well balanced tannins with a good acidity.



Petruna, 100% Sangiovese, is the latest organic wine born in the Il Borro cellar, with the Vald'Arno di Sopra Doc denomination. An important wine, the result of the right balance between tradition and innovation. The roots of Petruna in fact go back to the Etruscan period, when our ancestors used to make wine in terracotta amphorae.

The amphorae are filled with wine of the same type and closed with a steel lid. The wine inside them remains in contact with the skins for 12 months. During this period the interaction between the terracotta, the wine and the skins allows the characteristic.


Situated in the heart of Tuscany, Il Borro is a century-old hamlet surrounded by 1.100 hectares of organic land. Thanks to meticulous restoration that began in 1993 it has been restored to its former glory and now stands as the custodian of tradition, culture and sustainability and today speaks for the most elegant Tuscan hospitality.
