Winemaker Notes

Brilliant ruby red, with a fresh fruity and floral bouquet of iris, violets, plums, blueberries, Briar rose and brushwood, confirmed on the consistent, fragrant palate, rich in pure Sangiovese character.

Pair with pasta, risotto, light meat dishes, cold cuts like ham or salumi or as an all-around wine.

Wine & Spirits
Brothers Nicolò and Luca De Ferrari harvest sangiovese from their younger vines to make Prugnolo. They age the wine in cement vats to preserve its fresh floral aromas and lively red cherry flavors, and blend in ten percent mammolo to enhance its spicy character. It feels bright and balanced, with crunchy acidity and light, approachable tannins.

Boscarelli, Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Image of winery
The medieval hill town of Montepulciano is a little east of Montalcino, dominating the gentle landscape of southern Tuscany from its 1,985 feet above sea level. It is a tiny architectural jewel, with a higher density of arts per acre than there are inhabitants, and a long-standing fame as the home of poets and wines... The former thrived in Renaissance times; the latter star Vino Nobile, which luckily for us all is alive and flourishing to this day. The very "nobile" estate of Paola De Ferrari Corradi (founded in 1962; first Vino Nobile vintage: 1967) is located southeast of Montepulciano (facing the Valdichiana) on one of the area's finest, most historical crus, Cervognano, well known for its hallmark combination of elegance and power. In the course of over four decades of winemaking excellence, Paola (flanked by sons Luca and Nicolò) has chosen the hard way: absolute rigor and loyalty to quality & terroir. This resulted in an unbroken track record of vintage-to-vintage consistency. If anyone can pinpoint just one property that led the way to making Vino Nobile a modern classic, that property is, without a doubt, Boscarelli. Today, the latter includes 44.5 acres under vine at an elevation of 984 feet above sea level on the Cervognano hillside. Microclimate is well-ventilated and ideal for top quality Nobiles. Soil is alluvial in origin, very sandy and stony, conducive to good drainage and remarkable elegance in the resulting wine. Further acreage is in the pipeline, for Paola purchased a second homestead in Cortona, several miles northeast of Montepulciano. The long-term plan is to bring this second property's vineyard surface to 25 acres - over and above the original nucleus.

Montalcino

View all wine

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Sangiovese

View all wine

The perfect intersection of bright fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is the backbone variety in Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Elsewhere throughout Italy, it can make inexpensive wines for daily consumption ranging from inoffensive to deliciously easy. On the French island of Corsica, under the name Nielluccio, it produces excellent bright and refreshing red and rosé wines with a personality of their own. Sangiovese has also enjoyed moderate popularity in California and Washington State over the last few decades.

In the Glass

Sangiovese is a medium-bodied red with savory flavors of tart cherry, plum, tomato, fresh tobacco, anise, thyme, oregano, and dried earth. High-quality, well-aged examples will take on notes of smoke, clay pot, leather, gamey meat, potpourri, and dried fruits. Corsican Nielluccio is distinguished by a subtle perfume of dried flowers.

Perfect Pairings

Sangiovese is the ultimate pizza and pasta red—its high acidity, moderate alcohol, and grainy tannins create an affinity with tomato-based dishes, spicy meats, and anything off the barbecue.

Sommelier Secret

Although it is the star variety of Tuscany, cult-classic “Super-Tuscan” wines may contain no Sangiovese at all! Since the 1970s, local winemakers have been producing big, bold wines (with price tags to match) that are typically monovarietal or a blend of one or more of several international varieties—usually Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, or Syrah—with or without Sangiovese.
