A beautiful example of this ancient style, the Vino Nobile is a top Sangiovese-based wine from the beautiful Tuscan town of Montepulciano (not to be confused with wines made from the unrelated Montepulciano grape, like those in Abruzzo). The special clone of Sangiovese is the same as the famous 'Brunello' wines from another nearby town, so like Brunello di Montalcino this offers a beautiful balance of delicate red and black fruits with spice, leather and savoury nuances. Sandy soils in elevated hillside vineyards offer superb fruit that is manually harvested and fermented with indigenous yeast to produce a proper, classical yet gorgeously approachable Vino Nobile.

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.

What The Critics Say

91/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2013 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a very pretty, bright wine. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, cedar and licorice present a super-classic expression of Sangiovese, while underlying beams of acidity keep the flavors lively throughout. Mid-weight and gracious in style, the 2013 will drink nicely for another handful of years or more. This is very nicely done." Drink 2016 - 2023
