Cantina Boscarelli is a sprawling 45 acre property at an elevation of almost 1000 feet above sea level on the Cervignano hillside that has the advantage of their own microclimate. The soil is alluvial – sandy and stony with great drainage that allows for concentrated and elegant wines. Antonio Galloni calls them, “an excellent source for rich, textured wines.” He’s definitely not wrong.
The De Ferrari family are known for bringing the Vino Nobile category into the international spotlight – an honor that didn’t come overnight but instead after countless consecutive vintages of unmatched quality.
In the 2019 vintage, the De Ferrari family had little to do. A super even vintage made everybody’s job easier in the region, and Luca De Ferrari called it “a balanced year with no extraordinary excesses that needed to be compensated for.”

“The De Ferrari family make multiple passages to pick each bunch at optimal ripeness. Grapes for the Vino Nobile came in between 30 September and 7 October. It’s a plentiful, chewy, exuberant mouthful yet balanced and poised in its size. Wild forest berries harmonize with cedar and fresh earth nuances. The plump fruit is girdled by burly, ripe tannins and polished oak is in step with both. There’s a smoothness without any lack of intrigue, while racy acidity adds extra crunch.”
93 Points, James Suckling
“An understated Vino Nobile with discreet minerals, spiced plums, cumin and tarry savoriness that needs some time to pull together and open up further. Quite nicely chewy and tight, with a full-bodied palate and a clean, mineral finish. A little demanding now, but shows potential. Best after 2024”
