Winemaker Notes

Il Bosco is produced with only Syrah grapes selected, actually, from the best parts of two hillside vineyards planted in 1995 and 1999. Very intense, clear and concentrated; complex and earthy texture of ground coffee, cocoa bean (mocha), wooden Tuscan cigar box, fresh mint; red fruits and Mediterranean herbs and flowers.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
This is a beautiful, complete syrah with blackberry, black-olive, light tar and mahogany character. It’s full and chewy, yet the tannins are round and attractive. Give it time to open and come together. Spicy at the end. Try after 2023.

Tenimenti d'Alessandro  Winery Image

The history of Tenimenti d’Alessandro is linked to Cortona and its rebirth as a place of excellent wine production. Located in Manzano, down by Cortona (Arezzo) in south-east Tuscany, the property —today about 30 hectares of vineyards, certified organic since 2016 — was purchased in 1967 by the d’Alessandro family.

Starting from the 80s, the area has been subject to intense experimentation in order to determine the very best varieties for its soils and climate conditions.

Above all, Syrah performed the best and seemed to be the most suitable grape variety. The great vine of the Rhone has found the way to express itself with its own strong identity, well adapting to a warm, bright and dry environments, as well as sedimentary deposits of pliocene origin: clays, sands, silts. The very first result came in 1992 with the first vintage of the “Bosco”, a pure Syrah that soon became the winery’s most iconic label and one of the most appreciated Syrah in Italy and in the world. Viognier was the other discovery that, since 1991 with the cru “Fontarca”, holds an important share of the vineyards.

A new path began in 2013: the Calabresi family, already partner in d’Alessandro since 2007, took over the company. Filippo Calabresi is totally involved in the winemaking, bringing to Cortona the Syrah skills he has built with many vignerons in France, California and Oregon, after studying at the International Wine Center in New York Filippo realizes his idea of wine starting from the vineyards, working organic, excluding synthetic products and looking for plant’s health and balance. Craftmanship is cellar’s main ingredient, where the aim is to enhance the local character of the vines, without ever forgetting the drinkability.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
