Tenimenti Luigi d’Alessandro 2008 Syrah Migliara

Tenimenti Luigi d’Alessandro is located near the town of Cortona in the rolling hills of eastern Tuscany. The winery has quickly set the benchmark for Italian Syrah. Although only in its third vintage, Migliara, the estate’s top wine, ranks among Italy’s most sought-after viticultural trophies. In 2006, the Alessandro family hired Vietti’s consulting oenologist Luca Currado and winemaker Christine Vernay of Condrieu fame; the subsequent refinements to the wine have been dramatic and most gratifying.
