Boscarelli Vino Nobile Montepuliciano 2013
Italian & Other Imported Reds »
The blend for the Vino Nobile is 90% Prugnolo Gentile with 6% Malvasia Nera and 4% Mammolo from clones of their own old vineyards. Aged 24 months in a combination of large barrels, tonneaux and barrique, the wine is taut and structured with classic blueberry and plum fruit, evolving to violets. Complex and elegant, there are notes of dried herbs, earth and leather framed by firm, well integrated tannins. Great drinking now, it will age gracefully over the next decade.
Nocio dei Boscarelli, named after the old nut (‘nocio’) tree in the middle of this single vineyard, was planted in 1972. A landmark wine for the appellation, it is 100% Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese) with great structure, concentration and complexity. We shipped just sixty bottles because it’s Trembles’ favourite wine!
