Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG

90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo, Mammolo, and Colorino. Boscarelli Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is deep ruby with garnet highlights. Structured and complex, with a lovely nose of dried herbs, leather, earth, vanilla and strawberry, jam, and plenty of plummy, flavorful fruit on the palate.

“Boscarelli, now in its third generation, seeks to maintain its original spirit by dedicating every day to maximizing the unique character of Sangiovese.”
