“Private Tour of Boscarelli”

In our last full day in Montepulciano, my wife and I toured the Boscarelli winery, in Montepulciano. We arrived and to our surprise were the only two in our 11:00 am tour group. A very nice and extremely well versed tour guide Francesca who said she had limited English was in fact perfect for our needs. The vineyard is small by comparison to some of the larger spots in Montepulciano and Montalcino, producing in a good year 95,000 bottles of vino. 2013 has been a complicated year due to the amount of rain in the region. She noted that the conditions make it very difficult for the small producers. None the less the tour was very well done and gave my wife and I a better understanding of how the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is created. If you are looking for a less formal not over the top winery to tour, this is a perfect spot. At the end of our tour we tasted four different Boscarelli wines and all were in their own ways wonderful and full tasting. We purchased a bottle of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2010 which carries the DOCG stamp for 22.00 Euros and are now deciding on whether to share it with our friends back in Ottawa, or enjoy it right here on our Patio at our Sant Antonio apartment in the heart of Montepulciano.

For us wine enthusiasts, going from winery after winery is not only a fine tasting experience but also a form to get to know in person those who laboriously dedicate their lives to the art of fine wine making year after year. At first impression, Azienda Boscarelli looks like another small and good winery…and perhaps that is one of the keys of their success. We discovered that they simple are an all organic farm. Our hostess took the time to tell us from their family history, planting, harvesting and processing methods. Located in the world famous Montepulciano area, the place is just a portrait picture, the landscape is simply beautiful. We proceeded to tour their different areas where they store and process the grapes to become wine. Once on the much anticipated tasting room, we were able to savor several varieties by year of harvesting and age. It was just a shame having to dispose all that good wine left on the glasses after each tasting! Off course, their Nocio and Vino Nobile are their top wines and you can argue what year tastes better than others, but at the end, they are all of an excellent quality, that is, to reflect the very best representation of that particular zone. We were so impressed with their wines that we had to order some to deliver home.

We love their wine. They only do red wine, but is amazing. Small vineyard, lovely woman, Francesca, was so informative and spoke great English. We so enjoyed her telling us about the wines and loved tasting them!! A must to visit!!!

We had the opportunity to visit Boscarelli this fall and must say the wine is second to none. The Nocio di Boscarelli was probably the best red we tasted during our two week long visit to wineries in montalcino and Montepulciano. I must say however that Boscarelli is not set-up to entertain visitors, the place was a bit messy and disorganized. However the wine beat all expectations - 100 points out 100!

A little winery in Montepulciano, the wines put out of this winery are just fantastic. Just a small property, there was a certain welcome feeling from the property, nothing overdone, simple house and out buildings, nothing fancy. The blends are fantastic and the owner takes the time to provide an excellent and detailed tour of his lands. He took us around and explained the makeup of his vineyard, showing us the grapes on the vine and then bringing us into the vat room where he showed us the rest of the operation. The tastings were simple and intimate and included the entire selection at the time.

We couldn't resist his wines and we still have a bottle of the 2001 Nobile on our rack. We need to get back to winery soon! You would be remiss to visit this winery and buy a bottle when visiting Tuscany.

I last visited in Sept 2006, so ignore the when did you visit marker.
