Syrah is a noble Mediterranean grape which gives of its best in bright dry places like our Sicily. Because of this we have a great belief in the future of this variety in our island. This interpretation of Syrah is produced in a modern style, respecting all the characteristics of the vine, from an extraordinary vineyard – Maroccoli at about 400 metres, in an unspoilt area. Powerful and impenetrable, this is a wine destined for long aging.
Colour: a fine intense and transparent ruby red coloured wine.
Nose: sweet oriental spices and a fleeting recall of toasted cocoa accompany the wine in all its tasting processes, now providing hints of sun-ripened black fruit, now with more wintery notes of leather and humus.
Palate: an enveloping sensation recalls the consistency of velvet with a minty and black pepper finish.
Food pairing: exceptionally versatile. Good with pasta dishes dressed with rich sauces (meat or mushrooms); grilled or roast red meat, and game. Ideal with well-aged cheese.
Serving temperature: 16-18°C.
