Vines Mammolo (10 %), Prugnolo Gentile (90 %)

Color: Intense ruby ​​red.
Smell: The nose expresses intense notes of small red fruits and violet, notes of undergrowth and humus.
Taste: In the mouth it is fresh, balanced, with gentle tannins, rich red fruit aromas and minerality. Good persistence.
Food pairing: Perfect for red meat dishes, dishes with rich sauces, traditional dishes, salami and semi-mature cheeses.

Prugnolo is a wine in which we try to enhance the freshness of the fruity notes of Sangiovese in combination with the spicy flavor of Mammolo.
Produced by selecting the grapes of the young vineyards, richer in perfumes and less structured, in search of pleasantness, careful not to fall into banality.
Produced since 1989 as Rosso di Montepulciano, from the 2003 vintage it wears the current label. The average annual production is 20,000 bottles.

Soil characteristics: The vineyards are located in Cervognano, planted on limestone soils, of alluvial origin, sandy with a good percentage of silt and clay, varying according to the locations. The average plant density is 6500 vines per hectare.
Grapes: The selection of the grapes is made not so much on the basis of the position of the vineyards as on the characteristics of the grapes harvested during the harvest ian the various parcels.
Vinification: The grapes, harvested manually and transported in boxes, after destemming and soft pressing are fermented, using native yeasts, in steel vats filled to no more than two thirds of their capacity. Fermentation lasts about a week at controlled temperatures of 27 to 30 degrees. Manual pumping over and punching down of the hat are carried out.
Aging: The wine is left to mature for a few months in vitrified cement tanks where malolactic fermentation takes place. Before bottling, light filtration is carried out. Marketing takes place during the summer following the harvest.

Boscarelli

The story began in 1962 with founder Egidio Corradi’s dream of producing a noble wine that exalts the aromas and flavors of his native land while imparting the elegance he loved. Born into an old Poliziana family in the Montepulciano region of the Siena countryside, he later graduated with a degree in economics and business. He spent most of his life working as an international broker in Genoa and Milan. But his infinite passion for wine and deep knowledge of his home region induced him to buy two semi-abandoned small farms in Cervognano of Montepulciano, a stunning corner of old Etruscan Tuscany. The ancient soils had long been cultivated in the traditional way with different annual crops and small vineyards. Egidio’s dream and vision were embraced and invigorated by his daughter Paola and her husband Ippolito De Ferrari. Driven by their strong determination and dedication, they started Poderi Boscarelli in the ’60s. The development that followed brought renewed life to the age-old farming estate as Paola and Ippolito planted their first specialized vineyards at a density of 3,500 plants per hectare. They also built the first winery by renovating and adapting old stables. The original spirit of the estate has now passed to the third generation of the family. Each day Luca and Nicolò De Ferrari, sons of Paola and Ippolito, bring that same passion to wine production as they work to infuse each bottle with the aromas and flavors that Grandpa Egidio loved and searched for. Luca and Nicolò reselect and replant vineyards that continue to express the scents and range of characteristics of the incredible land that nurtures them. Such intense attention to cultivation practices and gradual replanting starting in the late ’80s resulted in an average vineyard density of 6,000 to 7,000 plants per hectare. Each plant yields about 1.2 kg of grapes. About 80% of the 14 hectares of vineyards that we own are planted with the Sangiovese variety. We also grow Canaiolo Colorino and Mammolo, the main indigenous varieties, and also Merlot and Cabernet in small quantities. In 2006 we also planted 2 hectares of Merlot on soils owned by the municipality of Cortona, where Merlot in purity is produced.
