2015 Concerto Toscana IGT

$67.00

The estate is located in the heart of Chianti Classico, well cared for by the 26th generation of the Mazzei family. The "Concerto" blend was originally born in 1981 and was one of the forerunners in the "Super Tuscans" phenomenon. Predominantly Sangiovese blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine spends 18 months in 70% new small French oak barrels. It is powerful yet fine, rich and juicy with notes of black fruits, tobacco and spice. It has the potential to age for the next 20 years.


ABV % = 14.5
