2018 Boscarelli Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
Region: Montepulciano, Tuscany, Italy
Winemaker: Nicolo de Ferrari & Maurizio Castelli
Established Date: 1962
The ‘classic’ wine of the estate is a blend of 85% Prugnolo Gentile with Colorino, Canaiolo and Mammolo from clones of their own old vineyards. Harvest is done manually, using small baskets and crates so as to maintain fruit integrity and freshness. After destemming and soft pressing, the grapes ferment in stainless steel.

Complex and elegant, there are notes of dried herbs, earth and leather, the palate flavourful with plummy fruit made supple by silky tannins.
