Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva Controlled, guaranteed designation of origin We again produced the vintage in 2010, making it almost 20 years since the reserve was last released in 1992. The reason for the break was that for the previous 26 years we gradually re-selected and replanted our historic vineyards, focusing on clone selection, different expressions of Sangiovese vines in relation to the soil and the possibility of combining the characteristics of Sangiovese grapes with other international varieties. In 2010 we found increased complexity and structure in the grapes from the first replanting of native vines, which convinced us to repeat, with the same blend of local grapes, the Reserve of the Vino Nobile of the 1970s and ‘80s. Soil The historic core of the Poderi Boscarelli vineyards in Cervognano is planted on calcareous soils that are alluvial and sandy with good percentages of silt, clay, minerals and stony rocky variants depending on the layer. The average density is now 6500 plants per hectare. Grapes Our wine is produced with selected grapes from vineyards at least 20 years of age that give great complexity and aging potential. Vino Nobile Riserva is made from 88% Sangiovese Prugnolo Gentile grapes and 12% Colorino. Vinification The grapes are picked manually and transported in crates .After de-stemming and soft pressing, they are fermented in oak vats filled to no more than two-thirds of their capacity. Indigenous yeast is used in the fermentation process that lasts about a week at controlled temperatures from 28 to 30 degrees. Short manual re-passing of must and pomace is completed in the initial phase. Pulping continues, if needed, for another 5 to 8 days after fermentation. Aging Nobile Reserve is aged in Allier or Slavonian oak casks of capacity ranging from 5 to 25 hectoliters, where malolactic fermentation occurs. Maturation takes from 28 to 32 months. Before delivery the wine is aged in bottles for several months. Optimal maturity The aging potential of our Riserva is a few decades, so the optimum maturation period we recommend varies, depending on the vintage, from 5 to 10 years after harvest.

Description

We are a small, historic family Winery producing Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG. Since 1968 we grow  wines, trying to get the best out of our Terroir,  just to be able to share with you one of the most pleasent thing of the world a good bottle of wine.

Estates rich in history and character 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 3 hectares of Merlot on soils owned by the municipality of Cortona, where Merlot in purity is produced.
