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:

95+/100Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"“This is savoury, dry in the best possible way, with a ton of red fruits, dried roses and herbs, and waves of fragrance. It’s a successful blend where the Sangiovese is dominant, conferring the wine with its warm personality but the Cabernet Sauvignon adds a touch of austerity to the tannins and a sense of quiet confidence. Turmeric and olive tapenade as it opens, alongside raspberry, red cherry and smoky oak, the whole thing both extremely delicate and intensely fragrant. Can drink now with a short carafe - there are tannins here but they are well defined and finely layered - but it will also age. Small amounts of the 2018 were released last winter, but this September sees the first proper release through the Place de Bordeaux. Ageing 18 months in small French oak barrels, 70% new, plus four months in concrete tanks afterwards. One to look out for - great stuff from the Mazzei family, that has been making wine in Tuscany since the 15th century.”"
