Boscarelli – 19/04/2012

Prugnolo Rosso di Montepulciano 2010
Made from 90% sangiovese and 10% mammolo, had wild green pepper expressiveness on the nose, showing bright red fruit on the palate with some complex spice and great drive on the back of the palate.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2009
Much more intense and closed, with some floral earth and darker fruit notes, focused acids, gentle tannins and some very subtle crushed herbs and dried apricots on the palate.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva 2007
Deeper black fruit sweetness, showing the toastiness of additional barrel ageing, violet floral elements and great balance.

Nocio dei Boscarelli 2007
One of the most seductive of all the wines I tried in Tuscany, combining floral, black cherry and yellow plum fruit aromas, with amazingly pure yet complex and concentrated elegance and tannins.

Boscarelli IGT 2006
A very perfumed cassis oak and dust element, with full and dense tannin and bold structure, but for the time being looked a little hot and needs some time in bottle to balance.

Familiae Vin Santo 2002
Was only the second of the style to impress me, having a caramel colour with some oxidative, flan, toffee, vanilla and hazelnut aromas, and whilst rich and sweet still had plenty of fruit and sweetness to offset the higher alcohol level.
