Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Aromas of plums, dark cherries, dried herbs and minerals. Medium-to full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Round and creamy with juicy character and plenty of fruit on the palate. Long, flavorful and vibrant finish. Drink from 2023.
Boscarelli’s flagship wine, produced since 1968, is medium-bodied, floral and fresh in the cool and rainy 2018 vintage. Scents of rose petals lead into flavors of freshly crushed red cherry and raspberry that are propelled by mouthwatering acidity. The tannins feel cool and taut, the wine perhaps less dense and concentrated in this vintage, yet so immediately appealing for its bright and buoyant personality.
A blend of Sangiovese and 15% Canaiolo, Colorino and Mammolo, this offers dark-skinned fruit, violet and dried botanical herb aromas. Smooth and already approachable, the rounded palate features fleshy Morello cherry, star anise and coffee bean alongside polished, enveloping tannins.
Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.
A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
