Concerto 2015: As good as Tignanello if not better...
 

Dear Wine Lover,

 

We would like to try to convince you with one of our favorite Tuscan wines, Concerto 2015 from Marchesi. I am sure you know Tignanello, this wine is very similar but at a fraction of its price. price. it is made with more or less same grape varieties, same area of production (chianti region), the owners are both “Marchesi” same vinification the only thing that changes is the number of bottles produced, much much small in this wine and the price (even cheaper): It is our head sommelier last discovery called Concerto , produced by famous Marchesi Mazzei. 

 

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 2015 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, making this a rarity even harder to find than Masseto (3000cases). 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.

 

Not only our Head Sommelier is fascinating by this wine rating it with 19.5 points stating: “It is magic. If you love Italian wines, this doesn’t need to miss in your cellar” but also James Suckling was recently blown away rating it with a great 96 points, declaring: “Don't miss it.”. Available at only CHF 60.00+Vat this wine will give you lots of pleasure without breaking the bank  - special prices valid until the 31.05.2018.

James Suckling 96 Points: This is fabulous with blackberry, blueberry and currant aromas. Some slate. Full body, dense and smooth with firm and silky tannins and intense fruit. This is a classic sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon blend. Don't miss it. Needs three or four years to completely come together.

Davide Vaccarini 19.5 Points “This is amazing, such a great and intense nose of Cassis, plums, Blackberry, blueberry , Tobacco and spices. So complex, Almost no need to taste it. Full body, silky tannins and a juicy finish. I love the tension and texture . It is magic. If you love italian wines, this doesnt need to miss in your cellar”.
