Boscarelli dei Boscarelli I.G.T.

Typical geographic indication: Toscana

Wine produced from scrupulous selection of international grapes grown in our vineyards at Cervognano.

Soil
Alluvial, sandy, very poor with traces of silt and clay.

Grapes
The 2007 vintage was produced by selecting: 80% Merlot,
10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot.

Vinification
The grapes are picked manually and transported in crates .After de-stemming and soft pressing, they are fermented in oak using indigenous yeast. The fermentation process lasts about a week at controlled temperatures from 25 to 32 degrees. Short manual re-passing of the must and pomace is completed in the initial phase. Pulping continues for another 10 days after fermentation.

Aging
The wine is aged in small French oak barrels ranging in capacity from 225 to 350 liters made from wood harvested in the forests of the Central Massif. After a period ranging from 12 to 18 months depending on the characteristics of the vintage, it is placed in barrels that are assembled after refining.

Before shipping, the wine is aged bottles for about four years.

Optimal maturity
The aging potential of our Boscarelli is a few decades, so the optimum maturation period we
recommend varies depending on the vintages from the fifth to the eighth year after the harvest

“SOTTO CASA” Vino Nobile Riserva D.O.C.G.

Designation of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed
This label of Riserva “Sotto Casa” has produced from 2011 vintage and it is the natural development of our Vino Nobile Riserva black label produced for the first time in the vintage 2001 with the idea of harmonizing the elegance, character and freshness of Sangiovese, with the tannic texture, the structure and the fullness of two international varieties like Cabernet and Merlot.

Now This Vino Nobile is a Cru so the grapes are not selected from different part of the property but come only from our historical vineyard “Sotto Casa” whose soil and distinctive microclimate contribute to the making of an elegant and structured wine.

Soil 

The vineyard is planted on red stony soil of alluvial origin. The average density of planting and 6500 plants per hectare.

Grapes 

The vines that contribute to the composition of this reserve are:
80% Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. The grapes are selected and harvested in order to maximize the expressiveness of each cultivar.

Vinification

Different cultivars are collected separately, and separately, after de-stemming and crushing, are put to ferment, using indigenous yeasts, in oak vats filled to no more than two-thirds of their capacity. The alcoholic fermentation lasts about a week at controlled temperature from 28 to 30 degrees. During the vinification is carried out the manual repassing of must and fulling of the cup. Maceration continues, where possible, for other 5/8 days after fermentation.

Aging

Each Couvée refines separately in Slavonian or French oak casks, where also the malolactic fermentation happens, the capacity ranges from 3 to 30 hl depend on the cultivar. The maceration lasts 28/32 months. Final blend is done at the end of maturation. Before marketing the wine ages in the bottle for a few months.

Optimal maturity

The potential aging of this Riserva is a few decades, but the optimum maturation period we recommend varies, depending on the vintages, from six to ten years after harvest.

About us

Company details

Boscarelli is a small, historic family Winery producing Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG
Through these pages you can directly buy our wines or book a tour of our Estate .

Terroir
Poderi Boscarelli is located in an historic area for production of Vino Nobile DOCG. At 300 m above sea level on the east side in northeast Montepulciano facing the Chiana Valley, Cervognano has the right natural air circulation and temperatures to provide an ideal microclimate for quality viticulture. The arrangement of its alluvial soils, rich in texture and sand, have good drainage and give considerable character and minerality to the grapes, helping confer the elegance for which our wines are known.
All these favorable environmental characteristics have always motivated our family to produce vintages that manifest the qualities already intrinsically offered by such a premier natural setting.
Sangiovese grapes are the most prevalent, covering about 80% of the plots of our estates in the best areas. On the remaining 20%, several native varieties are cultivated, including Mammolo Canaiolo and Colorino, and international varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet, always according to the climate characteristics and various soils.

Production
Production at Poderi Boscarelli focuses primarily on Vino Nobile DOCG, which represents 80% of all of our products. Vino Nobile is our most important and oldest label. Based on the age of the grapes and their selection, different typologies are produced. Boscarelli has a total production of 100,000 bottles.
We make 50,000 bottles of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano vintage with native grapes (mostly Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino). We also produce 10,000 bottles of Vino Nobile Riserva made with the same selection of grapes but picked from the oldest vineyards, which must be at least 26 years of age.
In addition, we produce 9,000 bottles of Riserva Sotto Casa from Sangiovese and Merlot grapes.
We produce 5,000 bottles of Nocio made from 100% Sangiovese grapes that are selected exclusively from a particular 3-hectare section located in an optimal position that is named Vigna del Nocio, which means “Vineyard of the Walnut Tree”. As well, some years we produce about 2,000 bottles of Boscarelli dei Boscarelli, mainly with Cabernet and Merlot grapes.
Our total production of 100,000 bottles is completed by 25,000 to 30,000 bottles of Rosso di Montepulciano Prugnolo and De Ferrari Red IGT, two young wines produced with grapes from the Vino Nobile but without aging in wood.
Following long tradition, we also produce extra-virgin olive oil and Vin Santo in very small quantities. Finally, distillation of Vino Nobile brings several hundred bottles of Grappa.

Philosophy
We respect and maximize the expression of our different soils and clones, recognizing they are distinctive and unique.
These principles constitute our philosophical beliefs applied to oenology.
Our commitment starts directly in the vineyard with intensive care for grapevines and continues during harvest with differentiation of grapes according to the age of plants as well as close attention to optimum ripeness and soil composition. Fermenting each selection separately, our yearly harvest produces at least 30 different cuvées. After separate aging and few weeks before bottling, they are joined in final cuts depending on their own characteristics. This process requires a lot of work but it allows for the deepest expression of the character of each plot.
