Toscana IGT

A legend is back

"Concerto" was born in 1981, as an effect of a viticulture becoming aware of its unexpressed potential, experimenting new training systems and new blends, including also non-autochthonous varietals; it was one of the forerunners and also a major player of the "Super Tuscans" phenomenon.
