Winemaker Notes

#49 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Il Bosco, which is 100% Syrah, comes from grapes harvested from the estate's hillside vineyards. These vineyards, planted between 1988 and 1995, have a density of more than 7,000 vines per hectare. The yield per hectare is typically only 5.5 tons of grapes (only 2.2 tons per acre). This low yield per vine is reached by means of a green harvest (pruning of clusters) at the end of July, which allows a wine with high concentration, deep fruity tones, and notes of pepper and spice. At the end of the malolactic fermentation, which takes place in barrel, the wine remains in oak for twelve months (six months in new oak barrels and six months in 1-year-old oak barrels).

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator
Intense licorice, blackberry, mineral, sandalwood and flowers on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky, superpolished tannins that turn to a butterscotch, toffee, berry and chocolate aftertaste, which has just a hint of meat and spice. Tannic and powerful, yet balanced. Best after 2012. 1,335 cases made.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The estate’s 2006 Cortona Syrah Il Bosco is a beautiful, deep wine endowed with notable clarity and precision. Blueberry jam, spices, earthiness and subtle toasted oak emerge gently from this articulate, elegant wine. Today, the 2006 Il Bosco is still quite vibrant, but in time it should acquire greater varietal complexity. It is a terrific effort from D’Alessandro. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

For us, quality is not only a value of primary importance, it's a way of life. Some twenty years on from our first experiments, with vineyards that have reached the ripe old age of 15 years in some parts, TENIMENTI D'ALESSANDRO is increasing its investments in the quality of the wines produced, thanks to the painstaking efforts and cooperation of illustrious vine-growers: our great friend and wine lover Luca Currado, one of the proprietors of VIETTI, a leading producer of Barolo, is today in charge of the wines, ably assisted by Christine Vernay, a famous winemaker from the Rhone Valley in France.

Today Tenimenti d'Alessandro's Syrah is an authentic territorial wine, and Bosco, the winery's top-of-the-range wine is now considered a benchmark for Italian Syrahs. Thanks to the continual verification work carried out on the various Syrah vineyards, the 2006 harvest led to the bottling of our first "single-vine" wine, produced, that is, from one of the vineyards (Migliara) that in recent years has yielded results of truly outstanding quality.

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.
