Mazzoni Rosso di Toscana 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red. The nose has fruity notes of red berry fruit, plums, blackberry, balsamic notes, sweet spices, tobacco leaf and liquorice. Warm, soft, intense and balanced, with elegant tannins, good acidity and a long finish. 72% Sangiovese - 28% Merlot

Mazzoni is the fruit of a collaboration between two Italian families. Based in Florence, the Franceschi family has been growing wine grapes and making fine wine in Tuscany since the Renaissance. Today, their Tenuta Il Poggione estate in Montalcino is widely regarded as one of the greatest producers of Brunello di Montalcino, one of Italy’s most coveted and collected wines, made from 100% Sangiovese grapes. Based in Napa Valley and Chicago, the Terlato family has worked in fine wine imports from Italy for four generations. Not only are the Terlatos known for having introduced American wine lovers to some of their favorite Italian wines — like Pinot Grigio, a wine that Anthony Terlato discovered more than three decades ago — they are also widely considered one of the leading producers of Californian Merlot. When the two families began their partnership more than 30 years ago, neither could imagine the boom in Italian wine that would take shape in the 1990s. They had simply remained faithful to their belief that Italy was capable of producing superb, world-class wines that reflected the country’s unique climate and winemaking traditions. In the early 2000s, the two families decided to bring their expertise in Sangiovese and Merlot together to create Mazzoni Toscana Rosso, a wine that combines juicy, fruit-forward Merlot with the bright flavors and earthy undertones of Sangiovese grown on the Franceschi family’s historic Tenuta Il Poggione estate in Montalcino.
