From two abandoned farms to a third-generation leader in Montepulciano, Boscarelli stands testament to the dedication and passion involved in Italian winemaking.
The Boscarelli story started in 1962, when Egidio Corradi decided to make his dream of creating a terroir-driven, 'noble' wine a reality. Giving up his career as an international broker to buy abandoned farmland in Cervognano, a stunning corner of old Etruscan Tuscany, he set to work farming his land and vineyards in traditional ways. It was his daughter, however, Paola De Ferrari, who kickstarted the Boscarelli brand, planting specialised vineyards at 3,500 plants per hectare, and adapting old stables into the estate's first winery.
The estate is now in the hands of Luca and Nicolo De Ferrari, third generation of the family. They continue to work with the same passion that drove their grandfather, ensuring each bottle is infused with the aromas and flavours of the region that he so loved. Production is primarily on Vino Nobile DOCG, but in recent years the estate has expanded to produce unoaked reds, special parcel wines from exclusive locations on their land, and even olive oil.
