Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Riserva DOCG
The noble estate of Paola De Ferrari Corradi (founded in 1962, with its first Vino Nobile vintage release in 1967) is located on one of the areas finest crus, Cervognano, well known for its hallmark combination of elegance and power. With four decades of winemaking excellence under her belt, Paola (along with sons Luca and Niccolò) has always been about meticulous quality and respecting the terroir. This has resulted in an unbroken track record of vintage-to-vintage consistency. If anyone can pinpoint just one property that led the way to making Vino Nobile a modern classic, that property is, without a doubt, Boscarelli.
