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.
