The very “nobile” estate of Paola De Ferrari Corradi was founded in 1962 by her father, Egidio Corradi, though from day one, it was Paola who ran it, first with her husband and after his premature passing in 1983, she ran it alone.


“Managing the estate on my own, with two teenage children – Luca and Nicolò were respectively 16 and 13 years old at the time – was a real challenge: almost no-one thought I could make it without my husband’s support,” Paola recalls. “I have to admit I came from a background of great love and privilege; I’d been more than a little spoiled. Ippolito’s accident uncovered abilities I didn’t know I had since I’d never needed to prove myself before.”


More than half a century after the first Boscarelli vintage in 1964, Paola has passed the test with highest honors: an unbroken track record of vintage-to-vintage consistency and quality.
Paola’s sons Luca and Nicolò manage the vineyard, and together, they follow all the phases of the production and commercialization. The wines are styled by Paola’s eldest son, Luca De Ferrari, together with in-house oenologist Mary Ferrara and renowned consultant Maurizio Castelli. Luca’s younger brother, Nicolò De Ferrari, is in charge of vineyard management.
