Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, ‘king of all wines’ according to poet
Francesco Redi in the 17th century, bears a family resemblance to both Chianti
Classico and Brunello, as it is made from clone of Sangiovese that, in this
region, is known as Prugnolo Gentile.
The property takes its name from
– Tuscan dialect for woods – that surround the vineyards in
Cervognano, one of Montepulciano’s finest crus. Family-run with four decades of
winemaking excellence and a track record of vintage-to-vintage consistency,
Boscarelli could rightly lay claim to that of ‘appellation leader’. Owner Paola
De Ferrari Corradi, sons Luca and Nicolo, and star oenologist Maurizio Castelli
celebrate a gorgeous style of wine that is vinosity itself, at once combining
richness and complexity.
