Dear Wine Lover,
It is another incredible week of incredible releases, today we have the release of Concerto 2016 from Marchese Mazzei.
It is one of the most succesful italian wines and we see great success among our clients who all love this wine. If the 2015 was a great wine , the 2016 is absolutely stunning, and we are so proud to have discovered and truly believed in this new beauty which in our opinion is as good as Tignanello but cheaper and much more exclusive, you wont find this in super markets and only in top restaurants wine lists!
The interesting thing about this wine is that it was produced until 1994, and then the Mazzei Family decided to use the vineyard to produce their top wine SIEPI until 2011, when they decided to start producing it again and to bring Concerto back to its ancient glory! It was one of the forerunners and also a major player of the "Super Tuscans" phenomenon. CONCERTO 2016 is a harmonious blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon; the grapes are being chosen from the best parcels of 6 hectares from the entire estate and only around 2`400 cases have been produced. Concentration and complexity make it a wine with an authentic and unique temperament. Its exceptional position, the unique microclimate and the considerable difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures yield grapes of exceptional quality. We also tasted a Concerto from the 80s and the wine was still great and fresh, so there is also great potential for aging.
2016 is another superb vintage for Tuscany and respecting of the great 2015, it is even deeper and more profound. James Suckling that just tasted back this wine, confirmed the outstanding quality of Concerto 2016, rewarding it with a superb 94-95 points, defining it so beautiful. This is without any doubt another great Concerto that shouldnt miss to your cellar! These special conditions are valid only until the 30.09.2018:
