The Mazzei family is known for being one of the most prestigious wineries in Italy, and they have been making wine in Chianti since 1435. Concerto has been made since 1981 and has all the ingredients to make delicious wine.

With vines dating back to the 1930’s, they are truly ancient, producing small berries of exceptional concentration. These old vines have very deep root systems too, meaning that in years like 2019 in which is was dry, they can get enough water early on in the year to flower, set their fruit and ripen to perfection – something a young vine would struggle to do. It was a year which brought perfect conditions and in the hands of the master winemakers at Mazzei, only magical things were going to happen.

What the critics say:

97/100Susan Hulme MW, Decanter

"Despite a hot summer in 2021 the nights were cool, which allowed healthy grapes to ripen completely and contributed to the finesse of the tannins, and the Mazzei family has taken a big leap forward in quality, resulting in a wine with increased purity, transparency and finesse. The aromas are clear, bright, and precise with notes of vivid, blackcurrant wrapped in gentle spice. The acidity is vibrant, the flavours are bright and vivacious, and the tannins are fine and beautifully integrated within the wine. This is a stunning wine with effortlessness, ease and flow across the palate."

96/100Jane Anson

"A delicious, measured and carefully structured wine, builds slowly through the palate, has typicity of Tuscan Sangiovese in its generosity, held in where it needs to be, and bursting with juicy red fruits, dark spices, turmeric, clove, tobacco, tar. Savoury and yet generous, with mouthwatering juiciness on the finish. Located in Castellina in Chianti, winemaker Gionata Puglignani, owned by the Mazzei family. Ageing in small French oak barrels for the Cabernet Sauvignon, larger sized for the Sangiovese, 70% new, plus three months in concrete tanks before release. Second tasting after a recent vertical, absolutely confirms its success."
