Tenimenti D’Alessandro started from scratch on their beautiful vineyard holdings, in the village of Manzano near Cortona, by planting 50 hectares of vineyards based entirely on scientific analysis results from soil samples. This led them to wide planting of Chardonnay, Viognier and Syrah. So successful has their Tenuta Il Bosco Syrah been that the entire area around the winery and on towards Cortona and Arezzo was granted a DOC for Cortona Syrah. Cortona DOC has the highest concentration of Syrah under vine in Italy.
