The colour is an intense but not very dark ruby red. The bouquet is typical of the variety, with notes of ripe plums, summer flowers and black pepper. On the palate, the sweet ripeness of the fruit caresses the centre of the mouth and finds the energy and the momentum for a fresh finish, with tightly woven tannins and a pleasant, slightly minerally character. A Syrah that reflects both the varietal and the terroir, despite its young age.
This wine is the perfect accompaniment to “Crostini Toscani” (toasted bread with Tuscan liver paté), starters with game sauce, or even more daring or spicy dishes.
Serving temperature: 16 – 18° C
