"Complex yet refined aromas of blackberry, mineral and flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Peppery and fruity. Delicious. Best after 2009. 3,000 cases made." -93 points Wine Spectator

"The 2004 Cortona Syrah Il Bosco offers wonderful aromas of spices and sweet toasted oak that give way to layers of small red fruit, earthiness and mint flavors. It shows outstanding depth in a linear, pure style with a vibrant, generous personality, plenty of concentration and fine tannins to round out the finish. It is a terrific effort from D'Alessandro. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020." -92 Points- Antonio Galloni- Wine Advocate

WINE:
"Bosco, which has become the winery's benchmark quality wine, is obtained from 100% Syrah grapes from over 40 hectares of hillside vineyards belonging to the vinery; the success of this wine, in both the Italian and international press, inspired many important producers to confidently go down that same road the d'Alessandro family courageously opened up..." -Winery

WINERY:
"The first to imagine the potential for growing Syrah vines on the winery's grounds was Attilio Scienza, one of Italy's leading wine-making experts, but it was Massimo d'Alessandro who first had the courage to undertake an almost academic-style experimentation model. In 1988, following the advice of Scienza, an experimental five-hectare vineyard was prepared in order to identify, in an area hitherto without a quality tradition, the ideal vine for growing there...The choice of Syrah was therefore not a concession to the trend towards international vines, typical not only of that period, but rather the result of scrupulous field research aimed at identifying a vine able to give its very best precisely because of the particular characteristics of the area." -Winery
