A top Vino Nobile di Montepulciano from Boscarelli - the Sotto Casa is sourced entirely from their oldest single vineyard of red alluvial soils. To the special local Sangiovese clone they add a touch of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, each variety vinified seperately - in oak vats kept only two thirds full - then the components are carefully blended to bring out the highest expression of this special terroir before further aging in bottle before release. A great opportunity to taste a single-source Vino Nobile - that is reaching a drinking age - and a rare wine in every way.

Its Origins

Poderi Boscarelli is located in northeast Montepulciano facing the Chiana Valley, in the commune of Cervognano. At 300 m above sea level, their vineyards have the right combination of temperatures and natural air circulation to provide an ideal microclimate. Rich alluvial soil and sand provide good drainage and result in wines with elegant character and minerality. The estate was founded by Egidio Corradi, a member of the old Poliziana family. longtime wine producers in the Montepulciano region. After spending much of his life working as an international broker in Genoa and Milan, he returned to his home region and purchased two semi-abandoned small farms in Cervognano, a corner of old Etruscan Tuscany near Montepulciano. His daughter Paola and her husband Ippolito De Ferrari started Poderi Boscarelli in the ’60s on this estate, planting their first specialized vineyards and building the first winery by renovating the old stables. The estate has now passed to the third generation of the family, sons Luca and Nicolò De Ferrari.
