Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva “Costa Grande” DOCG

100% Sangiovese.  Boscarelli Vino Nobile di Montepulciano “Costa Grande” is deep garnet in color, showing aromas of spice, blackberries, earth, and vanilla. A full-bodied palate with structure, elegance, and flavors of cherry, coffee, and leather.

From a single vineyard located next to the winery’s historic “ Il Nocio” vineyard. The vineyard was planted in 2000.

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